Will is a Professor of Microbiology at the European Centre for Environment and Human Health (part of the University of Exeter’s Medical School) where he focuses on the evolution of resistance in complex microbial communities found in human, animal and environmental microbiomes, studying the dissemination of AMR at a landscape scale and human exposure and transmission in aquatic environments. Specific focus is given to interactions with stakeholders from government, regulators and industry through a NERC Knowledge Exchange Fellowship awarded in 2019. Will also holds a BBSRC/NERC/CONICET UK-Argentina award towards developing a systems model of AMR focusing on feed-lot beef production systems as an exemplar, collaborating with the University of Bristol through programme integration activities. Will also advises the United Nations, World Health Organisation, UK and overseas governments on AMR.
