Overview

I am a Postdoctoal Research Associate in the Environmental Biology group interested in the gut microbiome and aquatic animal health. I am currently working within the Sustainable Aquaculture Furtures (SAF) initiative, a collaboration between the University of Exeter and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas), to identify targets for the control of Ichthyophthirius multifiliis - the causative agent of white spot disease and a major fish pathogen in freshwater aquaculture. 

My PhD project explored the gut microbiome as a health marker in the European lobster (Homarus gammarus) and involved the identifcation and characterisation of novel lobster pathogens which may impact the success of its cultivation. We utilised sea-based container culture (SBCC) and compared this to a land-based recirculating system to better understand how culture environment can impact the assembly of microbes within the gut and how this may subsequently impact the health of the host.
