Dr Daniel Wilson
11:15 – Insights from Genomics into the Evolution and Spread of Bacterial Pathogens
Dr Daniel J. Wilson read biological sciences before completing a D.Phil. in pathogen population genetics at the University of Oxford in 2005 under the supervision of Gil McVean and Martin Maiden.
He was a postdoctoral research associate at Lancaster University, advised by Paul Fearnhead, before moving to the University of Chicago as a postdoctoral research scholar advised by Molly Przeworski.
In 2010 he returned to the University of Oxford as a research fellow in pathogen population genomics. His laboratory focuses on understanding the evolution and epidemiology of bacterial and viral pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus and norovirus via whole genome analysis.
