Gut viruses & viromics

Hannah Pye is currently a Postdoctoral Research Scientist within the Adriaenssens Group at the Quadram Institute Bioscience exploring the use of bacteriophage treatment in combination with constructed wetland technology, as an intervention strategy to prevent dissemination of antibiotic resistance in surface waters in low- and middle-income countries.

Previously, Hannah’s PhD research was focussed on determining the molecular mechanisms of food-chain related stress tolerance in Salmonella enterica by using transposon directed insertion site sequencing (TraDIS) to identify genes essential for survival during stress. Hannah achieved a Master’s by Research from the Institute of Food Research (now Quadram Institute Bioscience) and her project involved determining the spore germination pathways in Clostridium botulinum, a biosafety level 3 organism.

Hannah’s interest in molecular microbiology began during her Bioveterinary Science degree at the University of Lincoln, where she graduated with a 1st Class Honours in 2016.
