Background & Research Interest
My research interests focus on the genetic, proteomic and phenotypic responses of biofilms ( and bacteria) to nano-sized materials. I am particularly interested in how size/shape differences in these materials affect bacterial responses and in turn related factors such as construction of the biofilm and transport through the matrix.
