“My research applies interdisciplinary approaches to study and compare natural and engineered digestive ecosystems that are linked together via overlapping phylogenetic structure and functional traits (i.e. biomass degradation, fermentation, methane production). Specific studies focus on the gut microbiomes of important agricultural animals (cows, pigs and salmon), wild herbivores (moose, reindeer) and commercial biogas reactors that recycle municipal waste in Scandinavia. We employ a combination of molecular microbiology, genome-resolved meta-“omics” and enzymology for the targeted discovery of biomass-converting microbial populations. This collective effort has revealed novel carbohydrate-active enzymes and mechanisms as well as intriguing cellular features (i.e. outer membrane vesicles), and population dynamics (i.e strain-level interactions and viral predation) that all exert influence towards community function. We are funded by the European Research Council, The Research Council of Norway and The Norwegian University of Life Sciences."
Det finns mackor och drickor (first come, first serve).
The Life Science Monday Seminars will display the wide range of
Life Science activities in the Gothenburg region, but we will also have speakers from abroad.
Academia, research institutes, and industry will be represented.
It is our goal to increase the interaction between education, research, and
innovation in order to make the Life Science environment at Chalmers more dynamic.
