I am currently in final stages of my PhD under the supervision of Profs. Peter Kille and Andrew Weightman at Cardiff University and Dawn Field at CEH-Walingford/NBAF.

My focus is on host-community interactions in invertebrates, with an aim to elucidate on the contribution that associated microbiota has to the host species. This is assessed primarily with Next Generation Sequencing techniques investigating metagenomics and microbiomics in earthworms.

Simultaneously I aim to develop novel bioinformatic processes to overcome obstacles and create new methods to investigate microbial communities, processes and interactions.
