I am a PhD student with a background in evolutionary biology. My work focusses on understanding how and why the bacterial adaptive immune system CRISPR-Cas evolves and what factors make CRISPR-Cas a more or less efficient immune defence. Currently I am investigating the importance of cell-to-cell communication in the evolution of CRISPR-Cas and how genetic diversity plays a role in the interaction between bacteria and phage.
