My research interests are broad having worked in the areas of both molecular microbiology and cell biology.  This includes the study of bacterial spore differentiation, microbial host pathogen interactions, molecular mechanisms of stem cell differentiation and the role of stem cells in cancer.  More recently my focus has shifted towards pedagogic research exploring interdisciplinary learning and the role of creativity in science education. I also collaborate with artists creating installations to engage the public with contemporary issues with the biosciences.
