Research Interests

My interests focus on antibiotic resistance in bacteria, particularly concerning the spread of resistance genes on plasmids between bacteria in environments such as rivers near to waste-water treatment plants. My future research will focus on the efficiency of transfer of these plasmids and the result on the fitness of the recipient under different selection pressures. I will be maintaining chemostats that imitate the river environment, also enabling me to control the conditions to investigate the effects these have on the ability to transfer and maintain plasmids acquired by bacterial conjugation.
