Research Interests

Microbes catalyse the majority of biogeochemical transformations of elements on Earth. They also encompass the vast majority of our planet's genetic potential. My lab focuses on characterising this genetic potential in bacteria. Particularly we are interested in how bacteria acquire the resources they need to grow and to stave off predation by viruses?
