Main Research Interests

I study animal-microbe symbiosis in deep sea mussels of the genus Bathymodiolus that harbor chemosynthetic bacterial symbionts in their gills. My focus lies on understanding strain diversity in the symbiont populations, using mainly metagenomics, metatranscriptomics and single cell genomics. Furthermore, I am investigating the contribution of phages to the symbiosis.
