My main interest remains in bacterial adaptation to new environments in the context of food processes and host-microbe interaction. I am particularly interested in genetics/genomics of Lactic Acid Bacteria. I have recently developed reverse genetics (Signature Tagged Mutagenesis) for the Lactobacillus genus to serve this research topic.
