Research interests

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen which commonly causes chronic infections in the lungs of Cystic Fibrosis patients. These chronic infections can be attributed to P. aeruginosa biofilm formation. Biofilm formation occurs when the intracellular levels of cyclic dimeric guanosine monophosphate (c-di-GMP) are high, in construct to biofilm dispersal which occurs when c-di-GMP levels are low.

My current research is investigating into Nitric Oxide sensory domains and their role in the turnover of c-di-GMP. This project combines microbiology, structural biology and biochemistry for the identification and characterisation of potential protein targets.

Phd Supervisors: Prof. Jeremy Webb, Dr. Ivo Tews
Phd Research: Identification of NO-sensing protein domains that regulate bacterial pathogenesis and biofilm formation in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Funding provider: Griffiths Memorial Trust, University of Southampton Vice Chancellor’s Award
