My research focuses on the evolutionary processes and ecological factors that drive the diversification and adaptation of microorganisms in various ecosystems, transcending different time scales ranging from disease outbreaks to the origins of life. Using an inter-disciplinary approach combining next-generation sequencing (genomics), population genetics, phylogenetics and lab-based assays, I aim to identify the underlying mechanisms that govern population-level structure and dynamics of microbes in response to environmental perturbations and selective pressures. ​
