I am a final year PhD student at LSHTM in mathematical modelling of methicilin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). As part of this, I also conduct lab work at St George's University of London. I started my project in 2018 and am funded by the MRC London Intercollegiate Doctoral Training Partnership programme.

Previously, I completed an MSc in Epidemiology (2017-18), and a BSc in Microbiology (2014-17), both at Imperial College London.

For more information on my work and me, please refer to my personal website.

Research

My research focuses on understanding phage-bacteria interactions, notably the dynamics of transduction (horizontal gene transfer mediated by bacteriophage, viruses of bacteria). I am particularly interested in how transduction can lead to the spread of antimicrobial resistance genes in MRSA. For this, I generate in vitro data in the lab, and develop mathematical models to reveal the underlying dynamics of phage and bacteria.
