Primary Research Area

A senior lecturer within the Microbiomes, Microbes and Informatics (MMI) group within the Cardiff School of Biosciences. Studying the interaction between enteric pathogens and their hosts with a specific emphasis on Enterohemorrhagic (EHEC), Enteropathogenic (EPEC) and Diffusely adherent Escherichia coli (DAEC). Research covers the biology, immunology and the prevention of enteric diseases. Focusing on the molecular mechanisms that occur within infected epithelial cells of the intestine (Figure 1). Infection may lead to abnormal responses associated with chronic inflammation (inflammatory bowel diseases) and colonic cancers.
Working on several host-bacterial pathogen systems combining a wide range of techniques and approaches from in-vitro cell assays to in vivo models with the aim being to understand the molecular mechanism of bacterial virulence factors and identify their targets in the host.
Modulation of immune response – focusing on other effectors that may target key signalling pathways that lead to the expression of cytokines.
Disease prevention -aim of this project is to develop a vaccine that could be used in children to prevent disease development or in animals to alter the colonization of EPEC and EHEC using C. rodentium, a mouse specific pathogen, used to study EPEC and EHEC infection in vivo as it shares the same virulence factors. The team is associated within the Microbiomes, Microbes and Informatics (MMI) group within the Cardiff School of Biosciences. We are studying the interaction between enteric pathogens and their hosts with a specific emphasis on Enterohemorrhagic (EHEC), Enteropathogenic (EPEC) Diffusely adherent Escherichia coli (DAEC) and Edwardsiella spp. Our research covers the biology, immunology and the prevention of enteric diseases.

My team has four thematic area:
1- Understand the epidemiology of diarrheal disease in UK and in countries with low income.
As most the people suffering from diarrhoea are self-medicating and do not report their symptoms to health professional, the true incidence of diarrheal diseases in UK is still poorly understood.

2- Explore the relation with enteric pathogen and the environment.
Diarrheal disease has been associated for long time with contaminated water with the main idea that if we give clean drinking water, the impact of diarrheal disease will decrease in countries with low income. However, this has been proven incorrect. In addition, the frequency of diarrheal disease in countries with high income is still very high with an average of one episode every year in average suggesting that other elements are transmitted the pathogens. The aim is to understand where the pathogens are coming from in the environment and to detect them.

3- Decipher the molecular mechanism of the virulence factor:
We are working on several host-bacterial pathogen systems combining a wide range of techniques and approaches from in vitro cell assays to in vivo models with the aim of understanding the molecular mechanism of bacterial virulence factors and identify their targets in the host. As infection may lead to abnormal responses associated with chronic inflammation (inflammatory bowel diseases) and colonic cancers, we are looking at the mechanism that leading to both conditions.

4- Investigate new way of treatment and prevention to decrease the impact of enteric infection.
The aim of this project is to develop a vaccine that could be used in children to prevent disease development or in animals to alter the colonization of EPEC and EHEC. We also investigation the relation between diarrhoea and zinc supplement.

particular interest in biogeochemical processes in the cryosphere, and in the development and testing of new technologies to monitor them. She has conducted over ten seasons of fieldwork in Antarctica and Greenland, monitoring the impact of physical processes on microbial communities through geochemical changes in meltwater.
Communicating data through ice is a real challenge, so our EPSRC funded research is exploring ways to return data from meltwater underneath glaciers.

new methods for measuring aquatic biogeochemistry in glacial environments, in order to interpret processes and changes occurring in extreme ecosystems. Current projects include: testing of new generation sensors for pH and H2S in glacial runoff; development of wireless sensors for measuring simple parameters in UK rivers and subglacial melt channels; microsensor monitoring of carbon exchange in glacier surface ecosystems.

Position           

Special Interest Areas :      

Summary of Research : 

An evolutionary biologist working at the interface of genomics, molecular ecology and conservation biology.
I am part of the Cardiff University Otter Project, where we study otters in the UK and beyond. We are using a diversity of scientific approaches, for example studying their exposure to environmental contaminants, antimicrobial resistance and their population structuring.

Research interests are broad, focussing on surveying genetic variation within and among species to infer key processes in ecology and evolution, such as speciation, adaptation, introgression and population structuring. I am also interested in the causes and consequences of dispersal, mechanisms of loss or maintenance of genetic diversity, and disease ecology.
Understanding these processes often requires knowledge about population structure and phylogeographic history. Hence, my research traces the origin and fate of genetic variation within individuals to their populations and species, and continues deeper into phylogenetic time scales. In this context I find it particularly fascinating to see how independently inherited parts of the genome reflect different aspects of present and past processes.
In my research I have studied a wide range of taxa, including bears, eagles, various species of tropical seabirds, wolves, coyotes and dogs, turtles, fruit flies, lynxes, elephants etc., spanning arctic to tropical habitats.

Summary of Research : 

research focus lies on multivariate, spatial and temporal dependence phenomena in extreme value theory. The latter is a branch of probability and statistics that provides theoretically sound procedures for the quantitative assessment or rare and typically hazardous events (as good as possible, knowing the limitations is also an important issue). Its methods are genuinely relevant for institutions that are exposed to high risks, for instance, financial services and insurance companies or environmental engineering institutions.

Position           

Special Interest Areas :      

Summary of Research : 

primary interest is understanding how a surface can modifies or direct a chemical reaction. The primary driver for our work has been heterogeneous catalysis where the surface has long been recognised critical in determining activity, selectivity and lifetime, but surface chemistry is an integral part of almost every heterogeneous system and thus our work is also relevant to aspects of adhesion, corrosion and biological activity. The core of our work has been concerned with understanding the reactions of molecules at surfaces characterised both chemically and structurally at the atomic level: the figure below for example, shows an atomically resolved image of a copper surface after reaction with phenyl iodide. The accompanying chart maps the changes in chemical composition as more of the reactant is adsorbed and reveals how high surface concentrations drive the formation and desorption of a biphenyl molecule leaving the surface covered in iodine. Other aspects of our work include studying the mechanism of photocatalysis, and in particular water splitting; characterising the decomposition pathways for archaeological iron (collaboration with the School of Conservation); investigating novel polymeric based sensors (collaboration with the School of Pharmacy) and exploring the anti-bacterial properties of nano-particulate silver (collaboration with the School of Pharmacy)

Position           

Special Interest Areas :      

Summary of Research : 

My research targets the use of photochemistry to control the behaviour of ultramicroporous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) from changing their overall porosity, to directing molecular flow in order to make functional nanofluidic devices. This involves functionalisation of crystalline porous materials, specifically using photochemically active components to direct guest uptake and release. We make MOFs that selectively trap gaseous species and are translating that work into the liquid state in order to purify water of molecular and ionic contaminants, including the removal of harmful pharmaceutical molecules.

Summary of Research : 

I am an ecologist and modeller, focusing on the consequences of environmental change on biodiversity, wildlife, invasive species and host-parasite interactions.
