Liam is a PDRA at Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, UK) currently investigating the mechanisms which underpin bacterial Type VI secretion system-mediated interactions towards fungi. His research uses cutting edge super-resolution and single-molecule localisation microscopy methods to study the mode of action and fate of fungal-specific effectors.
Before this, Liam obtained his PhD from the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK) where he developed and applied several advanced optical microscopy methods to different aspects of microbiology including cell motility, biofilm formation and mimetic culture environments.
Liam is also an active member of the Microbiology Society and a Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society, where he chairs the Early Career Committee and sits on the Life Science Section Committee.

Register to Nature Portfolio Microbiology Community
The Nature Portfolio Microbiology Community provides a forum for the sharing and discussion of ideas and opinions about microbiology. Through posts, discussion, image and video content, the community space can be used by members to communicate with each other, and with editors, about topics ranging from the science itself through to policy, society and day to day life. It is also a place to learn more about the activities of Nature Microbiology's editors and the policies and practices of the journal.
