I am a parasitologist and molecular biologist interested in the effects of co-infections on both the host and pathogen. I use African trypanosomes as a model to study these effects, and specialise in genetic engineering, fluorescence microscopy, and in vivo bioluminescent imaging. I am also interested in studying diseases in natural settings, and have extensive field work experience.
