Research Fellow in Immunoproteomics

University of Southampton


I am a research scientist at the University of Southampton. An engineer by training, I now work primarily as an informatician. My research subject is antigen processing and presentation by major histocompatibility molecules.

My principal project aims to improve immunotherapy treatment for cancer patients. Other projects 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.
