I am a molecular microbiologist with an interest in bacterial physiology and pathogenesis. In 2019, I joined the McDevitt group where my research focuses on understanding mechanisms that maintain homeostasis of essential metal ions, such as zinc and copper, in the gram-negative bacteria, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In 2018, I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge, where I used molecular genetic techniques, such as transcriptomics, proteomics and mutagenesis, to investigate the regulation of biofilm formation and virulence in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
