Personal profile

Research interests

Research Fellow | Lecturer in Pathogen Genomics   June 2016 – present

Using traditional microbiology techniques allied with modern microbial genomics, bioinformatics and a global network of collaborators I manage an active research portfolio, including research into Campylobacter global epidemiology, emergence of multi-drug resistant Campylobacter coliCampylobacter ecology and evolution and Genome-wide identification of transmission and virulence traits. I am a research leader with proven leadership skills and the ability to design administer and articulate a clear research vision and strategy for effective delivery of successful projects. I have built a global network of collaborators which are vital to the success (or otherwise) of my chosen research topics.

I have setup and managed NGS sequencing facilities at Swansea University and the University of Bath. We sequenced over 4,000 microbial genomes in 3 years in Swansea with an annual turnover of ~£80,000pa. Since our move to Bath in May 2016 we have already sequenced over 6,000 microbial genomes, generated over £300,000 in income and expanded our repertoire to include low-complexity meta-genomic samples. I have helped foster and develop internal or external networks of benefit to the University. Our sequencing facility continues to provide an excellent opportunity for us to collaborate extensively and augment our research with a global perspective.

I have experience of leading research collaborations with international partners. I have led and supported collaborative efforts in different countries to expand our network of collaborators and augment our collections of pathogenic bacteria isolates and genomes. Supported by funding from British Council, the Newton Fund and MRC CLIMB I have led our research activity in Thailand (Chiang Mai University and Chulalongkorn University), Vietnam (the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit and the Biotechnology Centre in Ho Chi Minh), the Gambia (the MRC Unit @LSHTM), and Peru among others.

Finally, I have a track record of successful supervision of postdoctoral research staff and/or postgraduate students. I have supervised technical research staff, visiting researchers and undergraduate/ postgraduate students since 2012.
