Modelling the impact of wastewater flows and management practices on antimicrobial resistance in dairy farms (2024)
Journal Article

Dairy slurry is a major source of environmental contamination with antimicrobial resistant genes and bacteria. We developed mathematical models and conducted on-farm research to explore the impact of wastewater flows and management practices on antim...

The role of multisystemic resilience in fostering critical agency: UK adolescents during the COVID-19 Pandemic (2023)
Journal Article

Critical agency (CA) refers to an individual’s feeling of power in relation to social inequalities. Research has demonstrated that high CA is associated with positive adolescent outcomes, however, less is known about what supports are important for i...

Whole-genome sequencing and gene sharing network analysis powered by machine learning identifies antibiotic resistance sharing between animals, humans and environment in livestock farming (2022)
Journal Article

Anthropogenic environments such as those created by intensive farming of livestock, have been proposed to provide ideal selection pressure for the emergence of antimicrobial-resistant Escherichia coli bacteria and antimicrobial resistance genes (ARGs...

Towards a general model for predicting minimal metal concentrations co-selecting for antibiotic resistance plasmids (2021)
Journal Article

© 2021 Elsevier Ltd Many antibiotic resistance genes co-occur with resistance genes for transition metals, such as copper, zinc, or mercury. In some environments, a positive correlation between high metal concentration and high abundance of antibioti...

A generalised model for generalised transduction: the importance of co-evolution and stochasticity in phage mediated antimicrobial resistance transfer (2020)
Journal Article

© FEMS 2020. Antimicrobial resistance is a major global challenge. Of particular concern are mobilizable elements that can transfer resistance genes between bacteria, leading to pathogens with new combinations of resistance. To date, mathematical mod...

Roots or Flowers? Take a Guess (2020)
Book Chapter

Phosphorus is a growth-limiting nutrient for plants. The use of phosphate (Pi) fertiliser is unsustainable because its stocks are non-renew-able and the run-off of surplus fertiliser damages the environment.
