Projects per year
For my PhD research, I combine techniques from the fields of Bioinformatics and Microbiology to better understand microbial adaptation. In particular, I study bacteria from the genus Salmonella, and aim to improve our understanding on how they develop antimicrobial resistance and increased pathogenic potential towards humans.
I am supported by a Strategic Basic Reasearch (SB) PhD grant from the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO).
