Research Profile

Section Affiliation: Applied and Environmental Microbiology

Research Interest:

My research interests concern stress genes and the molecular basis of resistance. This is a central question for scientific goals as diverse as predicting the impact of nanoparticles and microplastics on gut microbiota, the consequence of climate change on Arctic organisms and their microbial communities, the impact of microgravity, or the production of ice-binding proteins.
