Personal profile

Research interests

I am Professor and director of Bioinformatics (Milner Centre for Evolution) at the University of Bath and Co-PI of MRC CLIMB (Cloud Infrastructure for Microbial Bioinformatics)–the UKs largest cloud-based system for the analysis of microbial genomes.

Research in my group centres on the use of genetics/genomics and phenotypic studies to address complex questions in the ecology, epidemiology and evolution of microbes.

Our most recent interests focus upon comparative genome analyses to describe the core and flexible genome of pathogenic bacteria (Campylobacter, Staphylococcus, Helicobacter and Escherichia coli) and how this is related to population genetic structuring, the maintenance of species, and the evolution of host/niche adaptation and virulence.
