About: @LinzyElton I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Clinical Microbiology at UCL in the UK. We are part of the PANDORA-ID-NET consortium (@pandoraIDNet), where I work on many different projects, including antimicrobial resistance studies, SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic evaluation, Nanopore sequencing (including setting up a pragmatic tuberculosis diagnostic pipeline), training, capacity development and public engagement. Before this, I have worked on research projects in a number of countries, including Egypt, Tanzania and Uganda. I also worked as a scientific officer on a game reserve in South Africa, tracking and monitoring the health of the animals including lions, elephants, and black and white rhino. Whilst my background is in parasitology (focusing on helminths and specifically the prevalence and control of schistosomiasis, with an MSc in Medical Parasitology from the LSHTM), I completed my PhD on the role of biofilms in the transmission of Yersinia pestis in fleas and lice.
