Personal profile


Jane undertook her PhD in bacterial genomics, focusing on the mobile elements that are responsible for disseminating antimicrobial resistance. During her PhD she developed the software ISMapper for enabling the detection of insertion sequences from short-read sequencing data. She has been a postdoctoral research fellow since 2017 with a focus on the genomic evolution of hospital pathogens. She is particularly interested in developing new genomic methods to track mobile genetic elements that are shared between pathogens, and assess their impact in a hospital setting.
