PhD project name:

Investigating the impact of antibiotic and probiotic use on the early life human gut microbiome: A metabolomic approach

  • Workflows for both targeted and untargeted metabolomics will be established for stool samples derived from infants.
  • We also aim to explore which molecular features of probiotics that influences the growth of potential pathogenic bacteria in the gut. 
  • The overall aim of the project is to identify molecular markers that can serve as promising targets for the prevention and diagnostics of early life infections.

I am also working as a staff engineer at the Proteomics and Metabolomics Core Facility (PRiME) ( 

In addition I am the PhD/postdoc representative and twitter responsible for CANS (
