I am a molecular microbiologist with interests in molecular mechanisms, synthetic biology, and sequencing technology. I have worked in industry engineering bacteria for drug discovery (Isomerase Therapeutics, Cambridge) and for enhanced plant transformation (Tropic Biosciences, Norwich). More recently, I have worked at QIB developing Illumina and ONT sequencing pipelines. As of the 1st of February 2022, I joined the Langridge Group as a PhD student to focus on long read metagenomics sequencing for pathogen and AMR analysis.
