Role in SSPC: FI and P2 Leader
Research interests centre on understanding the molecular basis of microbe-host interactions. Functional genomic and molecular-microbial ecology technologies are being applied to dissecting pathogen-host interactions in medical microbiology and plant-bacterial interactions applied to environmental biotechnology in sustainable agriculture and biofuel crops. Molecular and functional genomic approaches are also being applied to understand the role of marine microorganisms in ecosystem function. Additionally, we are exploiting marine-derived bioactive components for biotechnological applications.
