Research interests

My PhD project aims to understand the bacterial interactions during the early life stages of cleaner fish development. Cleaner fish are a new species to aquaculture and are deployed to salmon farms as a biocontrol method to reduce sea lice infections. Large scale prodution of cleaner fish in hatcheries is needed to meet the demand of salmon farms. Understading the role of both protective, commensal bacteria and pathogenic bacteria during the hatchery rearing process is important to allow us to increase the survival of cleaner fish from eggs through to adults.

My research uses a combination of classic microbiology, molecular methods and bioinformatics.
