Craig is a research microbiologist based at the Cefas Weymouth laboratory. Craig has worked at Cefas since 2008, and previous to this, worked at the US Savannah River Ecology laboratory leading a project concerned with antibiotic resistance and metal resistance in shellfish-associated bacteria. Craig has contributed to numerous working groups on pathogens and climate change (including the MCCIP report card series) and is an editor at the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology.
Craig’s research interests bridge the gap between marine microbiology, molecular biology and waterborne disease emergence. He is interested in the dynamics of pathogenic marine bacteria, in particular microbes such as vibrios that represent an emerging disease threat in Europe, driven by climate change. Additionally, Craig is interested in antibiotic and metal resistance, and mechanisms of resistance co-selection in environmental bacteria.
