Focus of Work

My research interest includes the use of high throughput technologies to study the basis of bacterial evolution, pathogenesis and emergence of drug resistance. I am fascinated with bioinformatics discovery of biomarkers through comparative genomics, transcriptomics and metabolomics as targets for monitoring treatment, development of vaccines, diagnostics as well as targets for drug development.

Current Projects

The Evolution of metabolism in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex  Funder: Crick African Network (CAN) Accelerator Award. The Francis Crick Institute, London, UK)
