Profile Summary

My research has focused on the utilisation of sequencing (particularly "NGS") technologies to better understand microbial pathogenesis, infection, host/pathogen interaction and the evolution of symbiosis. My recent research interests involve combining multiple “‘omics” strategies, including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, to elucidate the genomic architecture of endosymbionts in the context of understanding reductive evolution alongside their arthropod hosts.
