Research

I am a postdoctoral fellow working in Paul Gardner's group. I am working on genotype phenotype association studies to classify pathogenic bacterial strains. My other research interest lies in developing and testing bioinformatics methods, in particular, I am interested in extending existent scoring tools for non-coding mutations. I have previously worked on phylogenetic methods applied in epidemiology and macroevolution.
