Reproductive Infection and Immunity Research Group Leader

PhD (Queensland University of Technology)

I completed my PhD at QUT in 2010 in the area of vaccine development against female genital chlamydial infections. During my PhD I was awarded a NHMRC Post Graduate Research Scholarship. I then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Griffith University, where I focussed on urogenital tract infections caused by  E. coli and Group B  Streptococcus. In 2013 I was awarded a prestigious NHMRC Peter Doherty Early Career Fellowship in the area of innate immune responses to uropathogens. In 2015 I returned to QUT as a Research Fellow through the Early Career Academic Recruitment and Development Program. I have since established a research group in the area of female reproductive tract immune responses to Group B  Streptococcus and the effects on the vaginal microbiome. I also work closely with Professor Ken Beagley, looking at the effects of chlamydial infection on male fertility (NHMRC Project Grant funded) and the development of a chlamydial vaccine (National Institute of Health- NIH funded).
