Research

My research interests include:
1. Biophysical characterisation of chemotaxis receptor-ligand interactions in the Kiwifruit bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas syringae (PsA).
2. Development of reversed phase-high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) methods for the detection and analysis of bacterial derived biofuels
