My interests lie in the interplay between the host and commensal microbes of the gut in the context of inflammation.
I am particularly interested in how host immune deficiencies (e.g IL10 signaling) in combination with microbial influences impact on disease development.
To explore these host-microbe relationships I am using a variety of high-throughput methods (microarrays, Next Generation Sequencing) in functional genomics and metagenomics analyses.
