Personal profile

Research interests

I am a molecular microbiologist experienced in bacterial genetics and genomics. My broad interests are how bacteria interact with each-other in their environment, and how certain species dominate and eliminate competitors.  I am currently involved in a project characterising the replacement of antibiotics in pig production with novel alternatives. 

Before moving to the University of South Wales I undertook a BBSRC funded Research Associate position at Cardiff University exploring the antimicrobial activity and population biology of Burkholderia bacteria from the Cystic Fibrosis lung. I obtained my PhD from Imperial College London with a thesis on the Type Six Secretion Systems of the opportunistic human pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

 

Teaching interests

I am module leader for Medical Microbiology, and the newly redesigned Global Challenges in Infectious Disease module.  I run final year student projects with a focus on microbiology.  I contribute to teaching on Microorganisms and the Dynamic Cell, Biological Research Skills, Introduction to Forensic Biology and Human Molecular Genetics.
