Microorganisms make up most of the earth’s biomass. They are the key drivers of fundamental biochemical process which are the source of life on our planet. Yet, we know very little about their communal interaction, their identity, genomic and metabolic abilities.
My major scientific passion is to understand the mechanisms and forces governing complex microbial communities coined “microbiomes".
For this purpose my group and I use state of the art microbial ecogenomics tools such as deep sequencing, big data analysis, metabolomics, fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), high performance microscopy and classical aerobic and anaerobic microbiology approaches.
