Bacterial colonization of material surfaces create a multitude of problems in our society, but can also be beneficial. In my research we focus on understanding bacterial colonization of material surfaces. We also try to use this knowledge to create coatings that could prevent bacterial colonization of for example medical devices. In other projects, we investigate how natural coatings of microorganisms (biofilms) in influence, and are influenced by, pollutants released into the environment.
The research in my group is highly interdisciplinary and we collaborate with colleagues for example in Brazil and England. More information about one of these collaboration projects can be found here.
