Biographical details

Dr O'Sullivan is an infectious diseases specialist and clinical microbiologist with a research interest in genotyping of pathogens responsible for hospital-aqcuired infections, particularly MRSA. He graduated in medicine from the University of Queensland in 1996 and has a Master of Medicine (Clinical Epidemiology) from the University of Sydney and a Diploma of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He was awarded his PhD from the University of Sydney in 2013 for a thesis entitled "A prospective methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus typing system for infection control: Design and effectiveness".

Research interests
