Summary

I am an Academic Clinical Microbiologist. In my daily practice, I see patients with infections that are becoming increasingly difficult to treat. My research focuses on developing new ways to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR): developing and using new methods to track the spread of resistance, utilising rapid diagnostic tools, optimising the care of patients with multi-drug resistant organisms, and translating the research findings back to patient care.
