Current research:

My PhD project is involved in exploring the molecular microbiology of TonB-dependent transport of sialic acid and it’s role in oral bacterial physiology in the context of Periodontitis.  This is a key virulence trait that we aim to understand with a view to developing glycan based anti-microbials against periodontal pathogens. This project is supervised by Dr Graham Stafford and Dr Joey Shepherd.
