My research focuses on the utilization of next generation sequencing (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 attenuating pathogenesis and evolving alongside their insect hosts. I have grant funding from the Wellcome Trust (Seed Award), The Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene and the Royal Society.
