Dr Zoe Dyson

Assistant Professor

United Kingdom

Dr. Zoe Anne Dyson is an Assistant Professor within LSHTM’s Department of Infection Biology working to establish the TyphiNET ( and AMRnet online surveillance platforms. Zoe is a computational and laboratory microbiologist specialising in understanding the genetic epidemiology and evolution of antimicrobial resistance in the bacterial agents that cause typhoidal fever (Salmonella Typhi and Paratyphi A). Zoe has a BComp/BAppSc (Hons) majoring in Computer Science and Biotechnology, and a PhD in Microbiology. Zoe is a founder and coordinator of the Global Typhoid Genomics Consortium (
