Research Summary

From the human gut and oral cavity to pristine soils and marine ecosystems, we use our expertise in microbiology and computation to study microbial communities and their ecology. We strive to create advanced software platforms, and design appropriate experiments to contribute to a wide range of concurrent research questions in the domain of microbial ecology. We are constantly looking for collaborations that would challenge us with novel and intriguing questions.
