Rosie is a final year BBSRC-funded PhD researcher in Microbial Evolution with a particular focus on antibiotic resistance in clinical Escherichia coli.
She uses a clinical panel of multidrug resistant E. coli from Greater Manchester to determine how diversity within the same species impacts selection for Antimicrobial resistance through mutation and horizontal gene transfer. This has included looking at the fitness costs (growth impact) associated with multidrug resistance.
Through her PhD she was fortunate enough to work as an intern within the Welsh Government as a Policy Assistant for the Water Quality Branch. This focused in the impact of Antimicrobial resistance in Welsh Waterways.
Previously, she has worked on identifying novel Antimicrobials from Actinonycetes and Using Cinnamaldehyde as an Antimicrobial in female Sanitary Bins.
