Expertise Summary

Molecular biology of genome dynamics and maintenance;


Homologous Recombination

Antibiotic resistance mechanisms

Teaching Summary

I convene modules about molecular biology of DNA repair, CRISPR systems and RNA biology more generally.

Undergraduate projects join my group for funded summer vacation studentships and final year projects investigating the biology of CRISPR systems in bacteria, and mechanisms of DNA repair.

Research Summary

My group is currently (2021) funded by BBSRC responsive-mode project grants and by drug-discovery companies to investigate DDR and CRISPR immunity.
