I am a molecular microbial ecologist and geneticist with a main research focus on the role of microbial communities in the forest soil ecosystem functioning. My broader interests include host - microbe relationships in different ecosystems.
Currently, I am working on my PhD thesis project as part of TreeDi in P7 project titled, 'rhizosphere and root microbes'
Besides, I am also working on a pilot study at GCEF funded by TreeDi
