Personal profile

Research interests

  • Monogastric (e.g. chicken and pig) gut microbiota and its interactions with host health and performance
  • Antimicrobial alternatives, with special interest in reducing antimicrobial usage in farm animals
  • Modulation/detection of zoonotic pathogens such as Campylobacter
  • Mathematical modelling of gut microbiota
  • Bacteriology and molecular genetics
