Work summary

I qualified as a doctor in 2004 and have since been working on a variety of projects related to the clinical and molecular epidemiology of infectious diseases. I am currently undertaking a DPhil jointly supervised by Prof Donnelly focused on using whole genome sequencing to explore the evolution and global dispersal of particular antibiotic resistance mechanisms in gram-negative pathogens of major clinical importance, including Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae.

My current research interests include pathogen genomics, antimicrobial resistance, plasmid biology, molecular epidemiology, and the epidemiology of infectious diseases in general.
