Research Interest

I am interested in the biochemistry, cell biology and pathogenesis of protozoan parasites. My thesis aimed at advancing the knowledge of the biology Spironucleus, a genus of protozoan parasites, which represent a significant problem in aquaculture. In spite of their detrimental impact on that industry, they have been little investigated, and a better understanding of the prevalence and biology of these parasites was required for effective disease management. Using Spironucleus vortens as a model, I optimized in vitro culturing of these parasites, and investigated the prevalence of several species in UK and Norwegian fish. I also used a wide range of analytical and imaging tools to investigate several aspects of the metabolism and ultrastructure of S. vortens. My current project focuses on developing new EM, X-ray and light microscopy protocols to investigate the cellular architecture of Plasmodium falciparum-infested erythrocytes.
