RESEARCH INTERESTS

Surface biofouling and biofilm production is a major issue in the medical, food and water industries. The design of novel antiadhesive, biomimetic and antimicrobial surfaces may provide a way in, at least in part to reduce such fouling, transmission, contamination and infection issues. This work includes 

  • Detection and characterisation of conditioning films and biochemical molecules at the cell surface interface.

  • The effectiveness of cleaning methods.

  • Hygienic status of food contact surfaces.

With the rise in antimicrobial resistance, the number of products available to treat infections is shrinking and a number of bacteria are also becoming resistant to biocides. One aspect of research involves designing and testing new antimicrobials.

The clinical collaborations are centered around:

  • Microorganisms in wounds

  • Transmission of bacteria in hospitals

  • Bacteria in surgical site infections

  • Infections in biomaterials.
