I am interested in bacterial eco-evolutionary dynamics emphasizing on morphological and metabolic transitions induced by genetic isolation and/or novel environmental stressors. I am particularly determining the evolution of the many pathogenic variants of Escherichia coli causing, for example, urinary tract infections, neonatal meningitis, sepsis and diarrheal disease.

The outcome of such processes may cast light on the way we view contemporary evolution and explain alterations in a disease landscape or its atypical representation.
