Biography

I am an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in infectious diseases and general medicine. My Phd, which was funded by the Wellcome Trust, focused on understanding the impact of azithromycin mass administration on treponemal infections as part of a strategy to eliminate yaws in the Solomon Islands including work on disease mapping and the evaluation of diagnostic tests. I am also involved in trials on the treatment of yaws in Ghana and Papua New Guinea and studies using sequencing to understand treponemal diversity. Alongside this I have an interest in the epidemiology and control of scabies, which is endemic in the Pacific region and has recently been adopted as an NTD by the World Health Organization. Alongside my work on these two specific NTDs I am involved in studies on integrated approaches to the management of neglected tropical diseases. Following my PhD my research interests have expanded to include all of the human treponematoses including both Treponema pallidum subsp. pallidum (the causative agent of syphilis) whilst continuing my interest in T.pallidum subsp. pertenue (the causative agent of yaws). I collaborate with Professor Nick Thomson on the application of next-generation sequencing tools to our understanding in these important diseases.
