Research ActivitiesMy research combines computational analysis, high throughput genomics and transcriptomics to investigate the interaction between host and microbiota. Optimized microbiota populations are rationally selected and characterized using bioinformatics algorithm development, molecular biology, microbiology, in-vitro cell culture and in-vivo models. My work aims to improve our understanding of the role of microbiota in determining host biology, specifically colonization resistance and infection.
