I qualified in Medicine from UCL in 2001, and trained in Rheumatology in London. Supported by a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Training Fellowship, I completed a PhD on the role of autophagy in lupus in 2013, supervised by Tim Vyse at King’s College London.
After completing my medical specialist training, I moved to Oxford to join the group of Katja Simon at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine as a postdoctoral clinical fellow in 2014, again supported by the Wellcome Trust.
In 2018 I was awarded a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Career Development Fellowship, establishing my own group here at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology.
