Head of Molecular Microbiology


I research the genomics of microbial pathogens with researchers from across the MORU network. My current projects include the genomics of Orientia tsutsugamushi, the causative agent of scrub typhus, and tracking the transmission of E. coli and K. pneumoniae in hospitals and the community in Cambodia. I am also interested in new sequencing technologies and work with colleagues in Cambodia and Laos to perform sequencing in those countries, and run workshops to train local researchers in computing and bioinformatics.
