What is your main area(s) of interest/expertise?

I’m interested in improving the diagnosis and management of infectious in primary care, and in how diagnostic tests can help us to do this.

What are you working on right now?

I am a co- Principle Investigator on the PRINCIPLE trial which is a response adaptive platform trial aiming to evaluate treatments for patients with COVID-19 in the community. We are aiming to find out which medicine could reduce a patient’s chance of hospitalisation and death.

Why is Oxford a good place to work in this field of research?

There is a huge energy and goodwill to achieve this very ambitious trial here in Oxford, and we are lucky to have such a wide range of expertise to draw upon
