Research interests

My research interests are primarily in the area of bacterial genomics.

Current research topics include:

  • Comparative genomics and phylogenetics of bacterial pathogens, particularly E. coli and Salmonella
  • Use of transposon insertion sequencing methods (TraDIS/TnSeq/HITS/InSeq) to identify essential bacterial genes and genes important for survival in particular environments such as during infection of a model system
  • Development of user-friendly software tools and online resources for exploring data from -omics technologies. Examples include coliBASE, Xbase and the recently-funded MicrobesNG.
