Background

I completed my undergraduate medical training at the University of East Anglia in 2016. Whilst at medical school, I was involved in clinical research in Gastroenterology. Alongside my clinical training at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (2016-2018), I was also a member of the Institute of Applied Health Research at the University of Birmingham. This offered me an insight into population-based epidemiology and disease association studies in gastroenterology as well as other immune mediated inflammatory disorders. 

As part of my DPhil, I am investigating the cellular drivers of inflammation across Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis with a focus on identifying mechanisms behind non-response to anti-tumour necrosis factor alpha therapy.  

Research Interests

  • Cellular drivers of inflammation across Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Mechanisms behind non-response to anti-tumour necrosis factor alpha therapy across the immune mediated inflammatory diseases
  • Use of routine longitudinal laboratory biomarkers in aiding risk stratification across the immune mediated inflammatory diseases in collaboration with the Department of Engineering Sciences
