My main research focus is understanding the contribution of translational gene regulation in response to stress and in controlling antibiotic production in Streptomyces bacteria.
Areas of expertise:
- Genomics, mainly transcriptomics and ribosome profiling, in both eukaryotic and prokaryotic systems
- molecular microbiology
I'm currently a Research Fellow at Brighton Genomics. Previously I managed the Functional Genomics Laboratory at the University of Surrey (for 13 years).
I have co-authored more than 20 publications in the areas of genome organisation, transcriptomics and ChIP-chip using high density microarrays, mostly on Streptomyces bacteria.
I have also been involved in several research projects where my major contribution was transcriptomic analysis of human sleep and human nutrition. More recently I have developed expertise in RNA-seq and ribosome profiling (Ribo-seq) using the Illumina NextSeq 500 platform.
