As a Senior Lecturer in Pathology at UNSW, I am an educator and a researcher focussing on neglected tropical diseases and emerging viral infections.

I am the chairperson of Human Research Ethics Committee (B) of UNSW, and a member of the higher degree research review panel at Kirby Institute. I am also the Secretary of the Australian Centre for Hepatitis Virology. My other administrative roles include being an editorial board member or an associate editor for BMC Infectious Diseases, Cochrane Clinical Answers, Systematic Reviews, PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases and Frontiers in Education, and a Cochrane author affiliated to the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group. I am a clinician trained in Internal Medicine and a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, United Kingdom. As an educator, I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy of United Kingdom and my teaching portfolio can be accessed here.

My research program is affiliated to the Viral Immunology Systems Program of Kirby Institute and supported by the National Health and Medical Research Council. Current projects focus on emerging viral  (Dengue, Zika, Hepatitis C, SARS-nCoV-2), and other tropical infections (Q fever and Rickettsial infections, leptospirosis, malaria). Our work extends from basic laboratory research to clinical research and translation, and evidence synthesis to improve the diagnosis and treatment of tropical infections.
