My lab is interested in the interaction between microbes and bacteriophages. We study the mechanisms that bacteria use to protect themselves from infections including CRISPR, and explore the adaptations that viruses have evolved to avoid defence systems. We isolate and engineer bacteriophages for phage therapy applications.
