I completed my MPhil in the Summers group (Department of Veterinary Medicine, University of Cambridge) where I investigated the role of indole in the formation of bacterial persisters in E. coli. I am currently a second year PhD student in the Weinert group.



Some of our most serious pandemics are caused by pathogens switching and establishing in a new host species and so understanding the epidemiological factors for switching success is essential for curbing pathogen spread. The capacity for some pathogens to jump into new host-species populations leading to the emergence of pathogenic clones is a major threat to public health and food security.
