After my PhD in the Bacterial Genetics lab of Prof. John van der Oost at Wageningen University (2013-2017) on the structural and molecular aspects of phage-host interactions and on phage engineering, I started also to explore CRISPR-Cas immune systems and anti-defence systems as a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Stan J. J. Brouns, Delft University of Technology (2017-2020). During this time I received a Veni award by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research to conduct independent research while embedded in the Brouns Lab. In July 2020 I set up my own lab at the University of Southampton focusing on many aspects of microbial interactions. Details of ongoing projects can be found at the Research Lines tab on our website.
