Research Interests:

We are interested in how ecology and evolution shapes cooperation, cheating and signaling (quorum sensing) in microbial populations, and the implications of this for the evolution of virulence and antibiotic resistance during infection. Our emphasis is on chronic infections such as those found in cystic fibrosis lungs, diabetic ulcers and non-healing wounds.
