Postdoctoral Research Scientist. Interests: microbial interactions and host-responses, microbiome and molecular biology
I am an extremely motivated and enthusiastic research scientist currently working as a postdoctoral research assistant at Cardiff University School of Dentistry. My project is to evaluate the efficacy and mechanism of action of a toothpaste formulation to disrupt/remove robust polymicrobial biofilms. I'm proud to represent the sciences as a STEM ambassador, and Champion of the Microbiology Society. I am keen to pursue an academic career in research and teaching, with a longer term aspiration to lead a research group of my own in the field of microbiome analysis, microbial inter and intra-kingdom interactions and mechanisms of action, and host responses to infection.
