Job Description

I am investigating the prevalence of antimicrobial resistant (AMR) bacteria within the wildlife of the Scottish Highlands. My primary area of research is on the faecal coliforms of red deer.

I am also investigating AMR in the gut microbiota of freshwater invertebrates, and assessing their potential use in future biomonitoring programmes.
