Glycobiology of host-microbe interactions in the gut

I am a Post-Doctoral Research scientist in the Gut Microbes & Health research area. My research focuses on the functional and structural characterization of glycoenzymes from human gut microbes in phylum Firmicutes, and expanding their use for bioindustries.

My PhD thesis is about the characterization of xylan-degrading enzymes (including an unusual multi-modular GH10 xylanase) from termite gut microbes in phylum Bacteroidetes.
