Dr Steven A. Kemp

Senior Research Associate

Since March 2023, I have had the privilege of working in the Lythgoe group as a Senior Research Associate at the Pandemic Sciences Institute.

My academic pursuits predominantly revolve around Microbiology, Virology, and Population Genetics. I previously worked around the globe, attempting to understand HIV drug resistance as part of the PANGEA consortium.

Currently, as a proud member of the Lythgoe group, I am deeply involved in deciphering the transmission patterns and the evolutionary intricacies of SARS-CoV-2, using the ONS COVID-19 Infection Survey dataset.

Fun Fact about me: I was part of the team responsible for the co-discovery of the Alpha variant of COVID-19.

As we navigate through these challenging times, I am ever more committed to unraveling the mysteries of viruses and their impact on human populations.

Looking forward to collaborating and sharing knowledge with peers and enthusiasts alike!
