DPhil, BSc (Hons)
I am a EPA Cephalosporin Early Research and Teaching Fellow at St Edmund Hall. I am currently working as a postdoctoral scientist in Alain Townsend lab at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine on developing a single cycle influenza vaccine (S-FLU) for clinical trials. Apart form that, I am trying to further understand the immune responses against influenza elicited by S-FLU in animal models and humans. We have also recently started developing vaccines and therapeutic antibodies for coronavirus (SARS-nCoV-2).
