Research interests

Ecology of gut microbiomes

Our research focuses on the ecology of microbial networks, tackling both applied challenges in the development of therapies and microbiome engineering, and fundamental questions on the eco-evolutionary processes underlying biological interactions.

  • Bioinformatics
  • Metabolic modelling
  • Ecology and evolution of host-microbiome associations
  • Microbiome engineering

Research projects

  • Nutritional interactions within microbiomes
  • Host-microbe interactions at evolutionary time-scales
  • New bioinformatic tools for microbiome research
