At the University of Oxford I completed an undergraduate master’s degree in Biochemistry (Molecular and Cellular). In my final master’s year, I completed my dissertation project at the Jenner Institute, in the Outbreak and Emerging Pathogens lab supervised by Prof. Teresa Lambe. My research primarily involved the development and immunological assessment of adenoviral-vectored vaccines against both influenza virus and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), with particular focus on the prospect of an immunogenic, bivalent vector against both aforementioned viruses. Additionally, I assessed intranasal vaccinations as a means of eliciting mucosal immunity. Such vaccines would be of particular benefit to younger and older population cohorts most vulnerable to RSV- and Influenza virus-related pathologies. Currently, I am an NDM DPhil student at the Jenner Institute continuing research within immunology, specifically on vaccine development against viral respiratory pathogens including SARS-CoV-2.
