Research Focus

My research focuses on the molecular basis of bacterial infections. I aim to investigate cell-cell signaling and the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens. The pathogens under study include those causing dental disease and those causing pulmonary infection in CF patients.

Research Interests

- Bacterial cell-cell signalling and interactions
- Antibiotic resistance
- Novel antimicrobials
