I am interested in studying the effects that alter the interactions between hosts and their microbiome, specifically leading to a breakdown of host-symbiont relationships and to shifts in the diversity of host-associated microbes. By combining the strength of microbial ecology, experimental evolution, and genomic studies, my current project will contribute to our understanding of host-microbe interactions, particularly focusing on the selective forces and ecological conditions that promote pathogen emergence under environmental stress.
