I am the microbiology technical advisor for the College of Life and Natural Sciences. I coordinate with academics to deliver microbiology based practical aspects of Biological sciences degree courses. 

Teaching responsibilities

I work closely with academics in the College of Life and Natural Sciences during classes to teach students fundamental microbiological techniques. I also work directly with students in the final year of their degree course as an advisor during their independent study projects.

Professional interests

I am interested in the mechanisms of resistance to antibiotics among bacteria, and the discovery of new antibiotics.
