Ms Cate Williams BSc, MPhil.
I am a PhD student studying the rumen microbiology and metagenomics, with a focus on protozoal metabolism and their application in industry. I completed a BSc in Biology (hons) and an MPhil in Biological Science at Aberystwyth before moving onto my PhD project with Dr Sharon Huws (now at Queen's University, Belfast) and Dr Chris Creevey. I specialise mostly in molecular (metatranscriptomics and metagenomics) and microbiological techniques but also have experience with pathogens, proteomics, lipidomics, metabolism and animal science.
I am a senior demonstrator and teach mostly Microbiology and Molecular topics as well as some Equine and Animal Science. I have over 20 years of experience with horses and enjoy demonstrating dissections to further my knowledge.
