Personal profile

Biography

I am a molecular microbiologist with a keen interest in fighting against antimicrobial resistant (AMR) superbugs. During my PhD in Malaysia, I focused on the detection and bacteriophage-mediated control of foodborne pathogens such as Campylobacter, E. coli and Salmonella from farm to forks using various molecular techniques to devise solutions from "farm to forks". Currently, I am working on bacteriophages isolated from local waterways which is to characterize them for deployment as new weapons, that is desperately needed in the battle against superbugs.
