Senior Lecturer in Biosciences


I am a Senior Lecturer in Biosciences, specialising in microbiology and molecular biology. My research focuses on immunogenetics, in particular studying the evolution of host pathogen interactions.

My role as Senior Lecturer allows me to combine two things I enjoy, inspiring students and independent research. I have over 10 years research experience in immunogenetics, working in labs in the UK and Canada, and regularly publish in high impact journals. One of my favourite parts of the job is working with students in the lab on their undergraduate research projects, and supporting them through to successful postgraduate studies and jobs.

My research currently focuses on the structure, function and evolution of the immune system in avian species. Among other interests, we are investigating the genomic location of Natural Killer cell receptor genes and their potential role in avian diseases.
