I completed a PhD at McGill and at a postdoc at Imperial College in microbial evolutionary ecology before moving to Oxford in 2007. The main focus of research in my lab since 2012 has been studying the evolutionary drivers of antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria. We are interested in addressing broad questions such as “How does antibiotic treatment drive the spread of resistance?”, “How is resistance stabilized in pathogen populations?” and “What are the genomic drivers of resistance?”. We address these questions using a combination of lab experiments, clinical trials, and computational approaches. Genomics is key to our research across these areas. My lab’s work on resistance has been supported by the ERC, Wellcome, and UKRI.
