Erica is a research scientist specialising in environmental risk assessment and risk management. She focuses primarily on chemical and microbial pollutants, soil and water quality, and wastewater treatment and reuse. Currently, she is particularly interested in understanding the role of environmental stressors in promoting the development and spread of antibiotic resistance. This is one of the 21st century’s greatest health challenges. She is a keen proponent of the One Health initiative, which recognises the inextricable links between human, animal and environmental health, and she really enjoys collaborating with people from different disciplines and backgrounds.
