I am based in the Transplantation Research Immunology Group (TRIG) and the John Radcliffe Hospital. TRIG is a dynamic group of graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and junior clinical academics with an interest in immune regulation. I qualified in Medicine from the University of Oxford and completed my DPhil at the Nuffield Department of Surgical Science. My research interests are focused on manipulating the immune system with a view to improving outcomes after transplantation.I am currently investigating regulatory T cell (Treg) therapy in renal transplantation in the MRC DPFS-funded Phase IIb TWO Study. I am particularly interested in the effects of hypoxia on immune responses as well as the mechanisms of rejection and regulation of vascularised composite allograft (VCA) and skin transplants. I am Chair of the Basic Science Committee of the TTS, and a member of the TTS Young Members Committee and the ESOT VCA Committee and I am keen to promote basic and translational research to junior clinicians. I am also an Associate Editor of the journal Transplantation.
