Research interests

I am a Versus Arthritis Career Development Fellow interested in understanding the immune mechanisms underpinning chronic inflammation and tissue damage. My group has examined how cytokines regulate the development, effector function and maintenance of immune cells within inflamed tissues, with a particular interest in the negative regulation of inflammation to restore immune homeostasis. This research has recently focused on how cytokines, primarily IL‑27, suppress the development and activity of ectopic lymphoid-like structures (also called tertiary lymphoid structures) across autoimmunity, infection and cancer. As a Versus Arthritis fellow, my research is geared towards identifying novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers of inflammatory arthritis pathology, thus linking fundamental mechanistic understanding with translational outcomes.
