My Research

I am interested how mobile genetic elements, such as plasmids, integrons, and transposons, evolve and spread antimicrobial resistance genes. I spend most of my time developing novel genomic and epidemiological methods to then apply them in clinical settings, but I also work on more fundamental questions surrounding plasmid evolution.
