Designing synthetic microbial consortia promises to revolutionize biotechnology by providing climate friendly and economically viable solutions in many applications in medicine, agriculture, or industry. To realize this promise, we urgently need to achieve a predictive understanding of how microbial communities assemble and function.
In this context, our team will try to understand two fundamental questions: 1) Can we predict which species will assemble into a community in a given environment from their genomes? and 2) Can we predict the collective function of a microbial community from its species composition?
My approach combines evolutionary theory (e.g. fitness landscapes), computational modeling, and experiments. We cherish a collaborative environment, looking for synergies between diverse skills and interests that will maximize our collective impact.

I will officially start at TU Delft on November 15th. If you want to know more about my research follow this link.
