Brett Wagner (Brett Wagner Mackenzie) is a Research Fellow at the School of Medicine, Department of Surgery at University of Auckland in Auckland, New Zealand. Her research focuses on the role of the human sino-nasal microbiome in chronic rhinosinusitis, and how to better understand the role of the sinonasal microbiome during health and disease. Her research interests include host-microbiome interactions, and microbial community network stability and response to disturbance.
