Research interests

I am interested in investigating the microbial ecology of wastewater by using cultivation-independent methods. Bioinformatics and metagenomic data are used for antimicrobial resistance and degradation analyses in wastewater treatment plants. In this way these approaches enable the evaluation of ecological theories in microbial ecology.
