Systems Biology of Gut-Microbe Interactions


As a PhD Student at the Earlham and Quadram Institutes (Norwich Research Park), my research focuses on understanding the effect of the gut commensal Bifidobacteria on host intestinal cells. The project combines a range of computational and experimental techniques to determine the impact of Bifidobacteria on host molecular signalling networks. In particular, I am using network biology and cell-type specific RNAseq data to study regulatory landscapes of small intestinal Paneth cells with and without the influence of Bifidobacteria.

Before starting my PhD I undertook a BSc in Biology from the University of Bath. During this time, I spent a year working in the Computational Biology division of biotech company Oxford Gene Technology. It was this work that captured my interest in Bioinformatics and Genomics and led me to carry out a PhD.
