My research interests center around the development of automated technology for environmental monitoring across Microbial Genomics, PCR, Genetic barcoding.

Advances in genomic science and molecular biology offer many powerful tools for understanding the environment. Unfortunately most of these methods require significant training and hardware which limits their ability to be used in the field or deployed remotely. My work relates to the miniaturisation and automation of environmental monitoring tools to facilitate remote monitoring and high temporal and spatial resolution studies.
