Structural Microbiologist, bringing microbiology to atomic level
My main research aims at understanding the molecular details of pathogenicity in bacteria. I have a particular interest in Clostridium difficile, a major cause of hospital-acquired infections strongly associated with antibiotic usage and resistance. Currently, we focus on surface proteins and sporulation mechanisms in C. difficile.
The Nature Microbiology Community provides a forum for the sharing and discussion of ideas and opinions about microbiology. Through posts, discussion, image and video content, the community space can be used by members to communicate with each other, and with editors, about topics ranging from the science itself through to policy, society and day to day life. It is also a place to learn more about the activities of Nature Microbiology's editors and the policies and practices of the journal.
