Sean Meaden
PhD student


My current research involves experimental evolution of microbes to test coevolutionary dynamics in a plant host (see research page for more information). I am primarily interested in microbial ecology and the evolution of infectious disease.

I completed a project on the plant pathogen Pseudomonas syringae, collected from an epidemic in horse chestnut trees, for my Masters and studied the effects of climate change on vector borne disease for my final year undergraduate project. Other research includes investigation of the efficacy of carbon offsetting in collaboration with Greenpeace science unit.
