Dr Nisha Singh, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Nisha is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Professor Nick Thomson's group. Her primary research interest lies in Public and Global Health, with a specific focus on infectious diseases and pathogen evolution. She is engaged in studying enteric diseases such as cholera, which pose significant threats to public health, especially in LMICs lacking adequate sanitation and clean water access.

Nisha’s research journey has been  influenced by an insatiable curiosity to untangle the enigmas surrounding Vibrio cholerae and its impact, particularly in South Asia. Combining microbiology, genomics and bioinformatics approaches, she has embarked on a study to explore the genomic landscape of V. cholerae strains circulating in Northern India—a region characterized by a high burden of cholera cases and recurrent outbreaks. Alongside this focus, she has also explored the genetic traits of other notable organisms such as Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Aeromonas spp.
