My research focus on the role of microbiomes in human health.

The role of microbiomes in human health

One area of research is about understanding the spread of antimicrobial resistance among microbial communities, both in the human gut and the environment.

Based on clinical trials, I also investigate how probiotic and prebiotics supplementation modulates the infant/child gut microbiome and host immune response or inflammation in relation to clinical outcomes.

In a collaboration with colleagues in the neuroscience field, we use a mouse model to investigate the gut microbiome-brain axis in relation to diet and cognition.

Microbiomes in human health.
