Personal profile

Research interests

The overall theme of my research is developing materials for diagnosis and treatment of bacterial infection. In particular point of care diagnostics, antimicrobial delivery systems and new therapeutic moieties (phage, lysins, plasma etc.).

We work closely with clinicians, especially the burns team at the Royal Bristol Hospital for Children, with whom we are developing an infection detecting wound dressing. We are also interested in other acute wounds, chronic wounds, skin and urinary tract infections.

In the research group we have material scientists, engineers, chemists and microbiologists. We are focused on trying to solve real clinical problems.
