Dr Sandra Wilks joined the microbiology group in 2000 as a research fellow. Since then she has worked on a number of research projects involving the detection of bacteria in complex environments and, in particular, biofilms.

Since being awarded an IfLS Knowledge Mobilisation Senior Research Fellowship in Healthcare Technologies in 2013, she has been working at the interface of Biological Sciences and Health Sciences. Her work is centred around applied biofilm research and is highly interdisciplinary.
