Biography:

My research interest is with Buruli ulcer, a necrotizing skin disease caused by Mycobacterium ulcerans (MU). My lab exploits multidisciplinary approaches, insilico genomics and functional laboratory studies to investigate gaps in transmission to identify the niche of MU and other mycobacteria in the natural environment; and the development of rapid diagnostic and intervention strategies for Buruli ulcer disease. I also work on characterization of secondary microbial infections in Buruli ulcer lesions and the determination of antimicrobial resitancce in microbes from patient and environmental samples.
