Investigating the evolution of antimicrobial resistance

My PhD explores the relationship between efflux pump activity and biofilm formation, in the context of aiding our understanding and treatment of antibiotic-resistant pathogens.

Previously, I graduated at the top of my class from University of Exeter in BSc Evolutionary Biology, and then achieved a Master’s in Biomedical Sciences Research with distinction from University of Bristol.

I am currently the chair of the Quadram Student Forum for 2017-18, acting as a liaison between students and management within the Institute, and helping to create a positive student community.
