About Katrina Ray
I'm the Chief Editor for Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology, where I oversee the publication of a range of articles including Research Highlights, News & Views, Reviews, Perspectives and Consensus Statements across the field of gastroenterology and hepatology. I have always had a love of all things microbiology, in particular focusing on clinical microbiology, gastrointestinal infections and the gut microbiota in my current role. Before joining the Nature Reviews journals in 2010, I studied for a BSc in Microbiology at the University of Manchester and did a summer studentship on virology at the University of Leeds. Next, as part of the EIMID programme, I worked at the Institut Pasteur (Philippe Sansonetti group), Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology (Arturo Zychlinsky group) and Karolinska Institutet (Birgitta Henriques–Normark group) before carrying out a PhD studying Shigella flexneri at Imperial College London under the supervision of Prof. Christoph Tang.
