Research interests

I am striving to become a specialist in the area of biofilm research.

My PhD focusses on the development of a model system to investigate the role of biofilm communities within microbiologically-influenced corrosion (MIC) and their control using industrial biocides.

During my Masters project I participated in research studying a novel gene, DAP3, thought to be associated with Perrault Syndrome. Additionally, I researched the thioredoxin system and the effects on ER homeostasis.

Research project: Microbiologically-influenced corrosion (MIC): Development of a model system to investigate the role of biofilm communities within MIC and their control using industrial biocides.
