An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge

What I do:

During my clinical rotation at the Infectious Diseases department as a medical student, I became interested in tropical diseases. My fascination for parasites just grew when I first studied them in the lab at Institute Pasteur in Paris. I was captivated by these creatures, especially by their ability to adapt to the surrounding environment. Throughout their life cycle parasites transform into spectacular inventors, actors, and diplomats as they develop. Being loyal to my background I decided to investigate host-parasite interactions of human parasites and pursue my PhD after graduation. My current project is hosted by the Duque-Correa lab at the Stem Cell Institute where I study the host specificity of Trichuris trichiura, the intracellular human whipworm.
