Translational microbiome

I am a BBSRC DTP funded PhD student studying the sulphate-reducing bacteria within the human gut, with a specific interest in the pathobiont Bilophila wadsworthia. During my PhD, I aim to elucidate how Bilophila, a ubiquitous member of the gut microbiota, interacts with the host and the wider microbiota in a diet-dependent manner.

I obtained my BSc in Biomedical Sciences from Durham University. During my degree, I completed an industrial placement year at the biotechnology company Cambridge Research Biochemicals based in Teesside.
