Areas of expertise
I uses classic and cutting-edge imaging approaches in conjunction with sequencing technologies to investigate unusual life strategies and symbiotic interactions in uncultivated bacteria and small eukaryotes. I am particulary intrested in the evolution of biological complexity in bacteria.
