I am a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Leeds, in the Faculty of Biological Sciences. I work in the field of bacterial molecular genetics, mainly with Staphylococcus aureus (and many antibiotic resistant strains thereof), looking at the evolution of bacterial fitness. In addition to bacteriology, I have interests in evolutionary biology, plasmid biology, entomology and geology.
