Expertise and Collaborations

Throughout my career, I have gained from the experience and insights of impressive clinicians and brave translational researchers.  We only offer what we can on the shoulders of others, and I work to build a better network of expertise and clinical care across my professional sphere.

Clinical Lead

I am Consultant Lead for two services within the Children's Allergies Department at Evelina London, Guy's & St Thomas', one of only four European centres to hold the World Allergy Organisation recognition as a Centre of Excellence. I lead the Allergy Prevention Service for young children, and the re-development of the Joint Gastroenterology and Allergy Clinic.

Research

My PhD investigated how parenting choices and exposure to micro-organisms may influence the development of eczema, food allergy and airway disease. I continue to investigate the microbiome and how to best put translational research into practice.

Allergy Education

I led the development of the British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology Society Conference from 2018 - 2020. I have been Director of the Allergy Academy for 3 years, working from within King's College London. We are now collaborating with he Royal College of GPs, National Allergy Networks and Specialist Allergy Groups.
