My work focuses on understanding Group A Streptococcus (GAS) biofilms that may be present in cases of GAS pharyngitis that simply do not respond to antibiotic treatment.
I am overall passionate about antimicrobial resistance, and after my PhD, wish to continue my journey in understanding the role bacterial biofilms play in an array of chronic infections.
I am also interested in gender equality and equity in STEM. I am currently a student rep for my institutes Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity Committee.
