I am Jack Aidley, and this is my site. Here I will, eventually, share parts of my research and thoughts on scientific programming.
I have just submitted my thesis for a PhD at the University of Leicester, supervised by Dr Christopher D. Bayliss, on phase variation in Campylobacter jejuni. I am now about to start a PostDoctoral position studying the evolution of host-microbiota interactions using C. elegans as a model organism with Professor Hinrich Schulenburg at the University of Kiel. This is part of the CRC 1182 collaborative centre who collectively study the “meta-organism” formed by hosts and their microbiota.
