Pathogen genomics

I am a versatile postdoctoral researcher with extensive experience in Mycobacterial genomics. The primary focus of my research is investigating the transmission dynamics of various bacterial species including Mycobacterium bovis in a multi-host system and non-tuberculous Mycobacteria in a hospital setting.  Alongside my research I also have an interest in developing reproducible bioinformatics workflows using state of the art tools such as Nextflow.
