Microbial Systems Biology
My research is focused on tackling general questions about microbial communities to improve our understanding of the microbial world in the prospect of planetary and public health. As such my interest is not wedded to a single ecosystem. Yet, I have mostly worked on aquatic microorganisms including oceanic and polar algae, freshwater bacteria as well as laboratory model species such as the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.

from Microbiology to Systems Biology
My research combines molecular and algae biotechnology, advanced DNA sequencing techniques and computational biology methods to cover various topics related to microbial communities.
Current emphasis of my research lies in the following areas:
