Areas of expertise
Lucy is a Wellcome Trust and Royal Society Sir Henry Dale research fellow at the University of Cambridge. Her group aims to understand why and how bacteria evolve to become pathogens using genomics. Lucy was awarded her PhD in evolutionary biology at the University of Edinburgh in 2008 on endosymbionts in ladybirds. During postdoctoral research at Edinburgh, University Montpellier II, Imperial College and UCL, Lucy studied genome evolution in a range of viruses and bacteria.
