Personal profile

Research interests

My work aims to mitigate significant public health problems in infectious diseases using bioinformatics and the latest sequencing technologies. I learned the value of this while working at Public Health England and being involved in the implementation of the routine use of whole genome sequencing for surveillance and investigation of gastrointestinal bacteria in the UK. I also learned the potential of using the latest sequencing technologies while using portable nanopore sequencing for the Ebola epidemic. My current work centres around improving bacterial GWAS techniques for investigating phenotypes of significance to public health and also developing machine learning techniques for classifying antibiotic and phage resistance from sequencing data.
