Ecosystem Heath and Microbiomes
We aim to mitigate the adverse effects of human activities on ecosystems by investigating environment-microbiome interactions using a systems biology approach.
Food Safety and Foodborne Pathogens
We aim to reduce the burden of foodborne diseases and improve food safety through environmental surveillance of foodborne pathogens and understanding their ecology and adaptation.
Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment
We aim to reduce human exposure to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) by studying the emergence, spread, and evolution of AMR in the environment.
