An engineer by training, I have since worked primarily as an informatician and research scientist investigating antigen processing and presentation by major histocompatibility molecules using multi-omics methods. I currently work as a learning technologist supporting Librarians at the University of Southampton.

My most recent project was CRUK Accelerator: Improving immunotherapy treatment for cancer patients. Other projects I have worked on include research into influenza, COVID19, skin sensitization to chemical allergens, asthma and contagious cancer in the Tasmanian Devil. I am also a Data and Software Carpentry instructor.
