Postdoctoral Researcher, Microbiology, University of Oxford
I am a microbiologist fascinated by the challenge created by antibiotic resistance (AMR) and the multiplicity of approaches needed to tackle it. After a PhD focusing on unraveling the evolutionary dynamics of an important driver of antimicrobial resistance at the University of Oxford I am now working on the impact of the colistin ban in agriculture on resistance in China in the same university.
