How long have you been a BSAC member?

I have been a BSAC member since 2017

What do you do?

In addition to being a BSAC trustee, my role includes the synthesis of novel materials and formulation of nanoparticles to enhance antimicrobial activities of a conventional dosage form of antibiotics to combat antimicrobial resistance. Additionally, I also write manuscripts, grants application, train undergraduate/postgraduate students. I also sit on BSAC’s Council, with a speciality in PhD and student interests.

One thing you love about your job

Working with skilled people who are as curious as I am, makes my work the best learning environment. Every day I learn something new.

One thing your colleagues don't know about you

I will be supporting BSAC in launching a journals club called the YES club for young scientists – watch this space !

What does BSAC membership mean to you?

As a young scientist and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) fighter, BSAC has provided me with lots of support, and opened my eyes to the challenges we face – we still have a lot to do to make the world a safe and better place! Early in my career, I received two travel awards from BSAC, which enabled me to present my research finding at two international conferences.

GP? Pharmacist? Researcher? Social Scientist? Whatever field you work in, if you’re committed to fighting infection then we want you to join us as a BSAC Member.
