I am a fourth year DPhil Student on the BBSRC Interdisciplinary Biosciences DTP, working on Crimean Congo Haemorrhagic Fever Virus (CCHFV) and Nairobi Sheep Disease Virus (NSDV) in the Emerging Pathogens lab. I started in the lab in 2016, working on my Masters project, developing multivalent vaccines against filoviruses. In 2017 I started my DPhil with Professor Teresa Lambe and Professor Sarah Gilbert at the Jenner Institute, and co-supervised by Dr Dalan Bailey at the Pirbright Institute. In my DPhil I aim to develop novel vaccines against CCHFV and NSDV, and new assays to assess vaccine efficacy. As part of the ongoing COVID-19 vaccine trial, I have been assessing the anti-vector immunity generated after vaccination with the ChAdOx1 vector.
