Biography

Maha Bouzid is currently a Senior Research Associate at Norwich Medical School, University of East Anglia. Her broad research interests are bacterial and parasitic zoonotic diseases. Her primary interests are the molecular biology, epidemiology, and pathogenesis of waterborne parasites, namely, Cryptosporidium and Giardia. She has a master’s in microbiology and a Ph.D. in Medical Microbiology awarded from the University of East Anglia, investigating mechanisms of virulence in Cryptosporidium species using genomic data. Her research interests have recently expanded to account for the effect of climate change, mainly on vector-borne and waterborne diseases.
