I am an evolutionary microbiologist interested in microbiomes, antimicrobial resistance, and lungs. Prior to joining Magdalen College as a JRF in 2021, I held a fellowship at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, Institute for Advanced Study, and completed a DPhil in Biology at University College, University of Oxford. Following my JRF at Magdalen, I have taken up a tenure-track position as Vice-Chancellor’s Illuminate Fellow at Queen’s University Belfast. My group will continue work at the interface of antibiotic resistance evolution and interactions in the microbiome.
