My research focuses on the presence of L-form bacteria in patients suffering with Chronic Lyme disease. Through Shotgun Metagenomic Sequencing and novel culture approaches we aim to identify and characterise pathogens involved in Chronic Lyme and establish the impact of long-term antibiotics on patients.
Before joining the NDWRH, I graduated from Durham University with an Integrated Master’s degree in Biosciences. Here, I completed a Master’s research project on embryonic mouse development.
