Dr Steven A. Kemp

Senior Research Associate

Since March 2023, I have been working with the Lythgoe group as a Senior Research Associate at the Pandemic Sciences Institute.

My primary areas of focus are Microbiology, Virology, and Population Genetics. I have worked in more than 10 different countries across the world, working on antimicrobial resistance, and investigating HIV drug resistance alongside the PANGEA consortium.

In my current role with the Lythgoe group, I am actively engaged in studying the transmission and evolution of SARS-CoV-2, utilising data from more than 225000 households across the ONS COVID-19 Infection Survey.

An interesting highlight of my career is being part of the team that first identified the Alpha variant of COVID-19.
