Research Interests: My research forms part of the Alexander Wildlab's interdisciplinary work in the Chobe District, Botswana. My project is looking at the occurrence  of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in the Chobe River, determining whether a relationship between ARGs in the sediment and water column exists and assessing the influence of environmental factors on them. Furthermore, I'm using ARGs in banded mongoose to bring in a terrestrial aspect to the project.
