Personal profile


I am an assistant professor at GELIFES at University of Groningen (The Netherlands) where I investigate the ecology and evolution of bacteria derived from polymicrobial (infectious) ecosystems, and antibiotic resistance.

I teach and coordinate part of the BSc and MSc courses on Evolutionary Medicine and Microbiome.

Additionally, I am vice-chair of The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development core committee on Infectious Diseases and Antibiotic Resistance, Fellow of the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health, and member of the International Advisory Board for The Lancet Microbe.
