Areas of expertise Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the causative agent of cervical cancer, a disease responsible for 200,000 to 300,000 deaths per year worldwide. Much of my research is focused on the link between HPV and cervical cancer and the role that the HPV E2 protein plays in the viral life cycle and tumourigenesis.
Media experience I have been interviewed on local radio and my work has formed the basis of occasional reports in local newspapers.
