Personal profile


Our research is focused on plant beneficial microbes and microbiomes with the aim of finding ´microbial solutions´ that support plant health. Key areas include microbe/microbiome engineering, secondary metabolite production and signaling in soil/rhizosphere microbiomes and how these processes relate to expression and control of plant beneficial activities. Our goal is to contribute to a reduction in the use of agrochemicals in agriculture.

In addition, we work on antibiotic resistant, epidemic “high-risk clones” of the hospital pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We work to determine and target the molecular mechanisms underlying the evolution and success of these clones.
