Infectious Disease
I am the Head of the Section of Paediatric Infectious Disease at Imperial College, and an Honorary Consultant in Paediatric Infectious Diseases at St Mary's Hospital, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. My research focuses on the interactions between hosts and pathogens which result in severe infectious diseases, particularly severe malaria. I am interested in understanding why some people get very ill and die from malaria, whilst others have a less severe illness. I am co-convener of the Imperial College Network of Excellence in Malaria, an interdisciplinary network of more than 100 malaria researchers at Imperial College working together to eradicate malaria. I also lead the international Digital Diagnostics for Africa Network, developing innovative diagnostic tools to facilitate malaria eradication efforts.
