Research Associate in Microbial Evolution, University of Manchester

I am a postdoctoral research associate in the laboratory of Prof. Michael Brockhurst, where I am part of a multi-institution collaborative project focussing on understanding and predicting the evolution of antibiotic resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Our research makes use of samples from a clinical trial of aerosolised inhaled liposomal ciprofloxacin for treatment of patients with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis lung infections, aiming to identify cases of within-patient ciprofloxacin resistance emergence, and to understand the evolutionary mechanisms behind this.

I graduated from the University of Reading with a BSc in Microbiology in 2018, during which I spent a year with Public Health England (now UKHSA) with a group researching the evolution of cationic biocide tolerance in ESKAPE pathogens. I then completed a PhD at the University of Bath on experimental evolution of bacterial transcription factors and gene regulatory networks, before moving to the University of Manchester in 2022.
