My academic interests have ranged across the field of medical microbiology but always focusing primarily upon the immunologic response in human infectious diseases. I am particularly interested in the area of host-parasite interactions relating to immunity to disease and it’s implications for diagnostic and treatment modalities. To date I am actively working in three different, but related areas with some of the most widespread infectious diseases in the world, malaria and human helminthiases.
