My PhD research was on enteric bacteria and enteric viruses of public health importance. I trained in advanced clinical microbiology in area of routine biochemistry procedures on Tuberculosis (Mtb) characterisation using complex, specialised techniques such IS6110 RFLP, MIRUVNTR and GenoType®MTBDRplus to analyse specimens for diagnostic, screening and drug resistance in patients and animal samples. I expanded my research interest to include neglected tropical diseases. I am currently leading a study on cross-pathogen infection of malaria with leishmaniasis, and dengue virus infection.
I want to broaden my interests to include vaccine development. In addition I continue to expand my interests to include combination therapy approaches such as antibodies and antibiotics to meet the increasing AMR challenge.
