OUCRU Lead Bioinformatician

My primary research interest is the epidemiology of tuberculosis in Southeast Asia, specifically how Mycobacterium tuberculosis moves within and between; people, communities and countries. Currently the main tool I'm using to investigate this is whole genome sequencing (WGS), in combination with detailed epidemiological data. I'm also interested in various aspects of fungal pathogens, including genomic epidemiology and evolution of virulence in Cryptococcus neoformans and Talaromyces marneffei.
