My interests are in Bacteriology, particularly molecular aspects and the role of bacteria in disease. I teach Microbiology to undergraduates in all 3 years of their degree and I also teach gene cloning. Together with Pete Lund and Steve Minchin I have written a text book “Gene Cloning, Principles and Applications”.
I also look after the first year “Skills for Biosciences” module and greatly enjoy running the first practical classes that new Biosciences students take. Linked with this module I am interested in enhancing literacy skills in undergraduate science students.
Other areas of interest are enhancing the learning experience for students, feedback and the transition from school to University.
