Areas of Expertise:
Microbiology, Microbe-Host Interactions
Bacteria, Viruses, Insect, Human
I focus on understanding of the complexity of microbe-host interactions applying system biology approaches to provide the scientific basis for the development of novel bio-strategies and designing of bio-processes of products of a wide spectrum of interest in bio-industry.
Fundamental/Applied Research Lines;
- Detection of pathogen signals in complex biological samples using well established model organisms (in Human, Drosophila, Tsetse, Mosquito.
- Manipulation of the host (vector) microbiota to block transmission of pathogens.
