    • Carrying out in-vitro experiments which include growing bacterial culture, growing bacterial biofilm on various materials, histology, micro CT and basic immunohistochemistry
    • Assisting in carrying out in-vivo experiments involving a mouse based animal model and joint replacement implants.
    • Participating in laboratory meetings
    • Training students and other lab staff, and supervising laboratory aides
    • Assisting with preparation of manuscripts, presentations and other written documents
