The human gut microbiota has evolved to effectively transform various dietary foods and xenobiotics including pharmaceuticals and environmental chemicals, and have therefore been extensively connected with human physiology and health.

My research area is focused on the characterization of genetic basis of xenobiotics-degrading pathways and dissection of its physiological function in the interaction between host and microbe. By using a combination of bioinformatics, biochemical and genetic analysis, I will discover and functionally characterize unreported bacterial metabolic pathways. These results will provide broader insight into gut microbial xenobiotic transformations and guidance for personalized nutrition and medicine.
