Personal profile


Dr Mowlaboccus, originally from Mauritius, completed a BSc(Hons) degree at UWA in 2013 and was awarded an International Postgraduate Research Scholarship to pursue a PhD course at UWA in 2014. Dr Mowlaboccus was awarded a PhD degree in 2018 and his thesis was titled "Molecular Epidemiology of, and Antimicrobial Resistance in, Pathogenic Neisseria meningitidis from Western Australia". During his PhD, Dr Mowlaboccus used whole genome sequencing to characterise Neisseria meningitidis isolates circulating in Western Australia from 2000 to 2014. He also identified and characterised the clonal expansion of a penicillin-resistant clade of Neisseria meningitidis in Western Australia.


Dr Mowlaboccus is an early-career research scientist in the field of infectious diseases and his area of expertise includes the use of bioinformatics, molecular biology and biochemistry to investigate and monitor the evolution of bacterial pathogens. Post-PhD, Dr Mowlaboccus has broadened his expertise by investigating the mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance in bacterial pathogens such as Neisseria meningitidis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecium, Enterococcus faecalis, Streptococcus agalactiae and Escherichia coli.
