Postdoctoral Research Fellow
We have just begun to understand the functions of microbial biosynthetic pathways and the enzymes and metabolites involved. There is so much more to explore.
My research area is focused on the characterization of enzymes. The human gut microbiota is therefore one of the most interesting targets, as it metabolizes an immense range of bioactive molecules that can contribute to the physiology of the host. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms remain largely unknown. In order to understand pathophysiological relationships between the host and the gut microbiome and ultimately being able to develop therapeutic strategies, my research applies on deciphering biochemical functions within this complex ecosystem.
