Naomi holds a BSc in Biomedical Sciences from the University of York and a MRes in the Microbiome in Health and Disease from Imperial College London.

Throughout her studies, Naomi became increasingly interested in the role of the human microbiota in health and disase and the growing crisis of antimicrobial resistance. These subjects caught her fascination over others as they clearly illustrated two sides to the relationship between bacteria and humans. She wanted to continue studying and develop our understanding of this relationship to ultimately improve the health and wellbeing of people around the globe.

Antimicrobial resistance mechanisms in the presence of sub-inhibitory antibiotics and the microbiome

Briefly, my thesis aims develop an integrated understanding various putative lung pathogens and how differences in bacterial communities alters emergence of antimicrobial resistance. 

Over the course of my project I will determine how bacterial dynamics in isolation and changed by the presence of additional species. Further, molecular techniques including transcriptomics and proteomics will be used to deduce what genomic pathways are used to drive AMR. Finally these results will be used to design an improved antimicrobial susceptiblity test to account for polymicrobial interactions.
