Biography

I completed my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Nigeria and my Masters degree in Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology from the University of Westminster, London in 2012. My MSc research was on the development of a pseudovirus based neutralization assay for Bundibugyo Ebolavirus with Dr Edward Wright. Upon graduating from Westminster, I taught undergraduate courses in Veterinary public health and preventive medicine at Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto, Nigeria and also worked at the Centre for Advanced Medical Research and Training (CAMRET) at the same University, where I was able to apply the skills and knowledge gained during my MSc degree.

My current PhD research with Dr Mark Holmes focuses on studying the genetic diversity of Salmonella isolates from humans, animals and the environment in Nigeria; as well as their antimicrobial resistance profile.

 

Research

 I am interested in antimicrobial resistant bacteria and using molecular biology tools to study the genetic diversity of Salmonella organisms.
