Rachel Wheatley

Evolutionary microbiologist 

I am an evolutionary microbiologist interested in antibiotic resistance evolution in bacterial pathogens, microbial interactions, respiratory infections, and bacterial defence systems. 

I am currently a Prize Fellow at Magdalen College (University of Oxford), affiliated with the Biology Department. Previously, I held a fellowship at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin (Institute of Advanced Study), and you can read more about my fellowship project here.

In April 2024 I will be starting a tenure-track position as Vice Chancellor's Illuminate Fellow at Queen's University Belfast. My group will continue work at the interface of antibiotic resistance evolution and interactions in the microbiome.
