Overview:

I am a Professor of Microbiology at The European Centre for Environment and Human Health, part of the University of Exeter Medical School. I lead a large research group focusing on the environmental dimension of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) with recent and current funding of £4M with over 20 group members. We research the evolution of resistance in complex microbial communities found in human, animal and environmental microbiomes. We also study the dissemination of AMR at a landscape scale and human exposure and transmission in aquatic environments.
