Associate Professor of Biology
Broadly, we are interested in studying microbial evolution and ecology. To gain insights into the fundamental mechanisms underlying the processes, we use an interdisciplinary approach that draws upon the fields of genomics, bioinformatics, evolutionary biology and ecology.
Specific topics in our lab include
Gut microbiome and their contribution to the host biology
Macroecological patterns of microbial communities
Realtime detection of antibiotic resistance using metagenomics
Bacterial tree of life
Development of bioinformatic tools
