Environmental and Evolutionary Microbiology
My primary interest is the environment, the quality of our living resources and the ways that bacteria can help to manage and degrade human wastes and restore environmental health. Consequently, I am very interested in genetic adaptation processes in bacteria, the mechanisms by which they deal with toxic substances, how they react to pollution in general and how we can apply microbial processes in a useful way (like bacterial bioreporters, bioremediation, microbiome engineering).

We are very happy and proud that the Swiss Government has decided to support our new collaborative initiative NCCR Microbiomes, which will enable us to work with 20+ groups on microbiome studies and engineering. We are waiting for a new website to be launched on this initiative. You can watch a short content movie here.
