Amy Foo Guest

Amy’s PhD programme is in collaboration with Unilever, and will focus on biofilms with regards to oral health.

Tsz Ying To (Teresa)

Teresa's PhD research interests are organic synthesis, peptide synthesis and their applications to target biofilms on surfaces as potential antimicrobials.

Matthew Oakes

Matthew is a first year PhD student in the Open Innovation Hub for Antimicrobial Surfaces focussing on the synthesis and characterisation of functional and antimicrobial surfaces.

Kyle Phillips

Kyle is a first year PhD student working in the Open Innovation Hub doing research into producing and characterising antimicrobial and biomimetic surface coatings.

Marta Alemanno

Marta's PhD research is focused on spectroscopic analysis and high-resolution imaging of bacterial cell interaction at surfaces.

Andrei Barbulescu

Andrei has a keen interest in antimicrobial resistance and its impact on human health. Driven by an appreciation of scientific disciplines beyond biology, Andrei was drawn to explore the intersection of biology and chemistry and pursued a PhD in Chemistry to investigate the antimicrobial activity of different shapes of Zinc Oxide nanoparticles. Andrei’s research focuses on exploring the potential of these nanoparticles to be applied as coatings to combat microbial growth and prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Andrei is a highly dedicated researcher who is passionate about utilising scientific research to contribute to the betterment of society.

Abigail Johnson

Abigail's PhD research focusses on the synthesis and the mechanistic study of novel antimicrobial coatings on glass surfaces. The project is within the Open Innovation Hub for Antimicrobial Surfaces and is also in collaboration with industry.
