Glycobiology of host-microbe interactions in the gut

I am currently on the 4-year DTP PhD program at the Quadram Institute Biosciences titled “Structure and Function of the Accessory Secretion System” in the Juge Group (2018-2022). The accessory secretion system is a dedicated transport mechanism for large cell surface glycoprotein adhesins and is expressed by several gram-positive gut symbionts, which feeds into my interests elucidating the underlying mechanism of the gut microbiome and host relationship.

Previously, I completed an integrated Masters at the University of East Anglia in Microbiology (2014-2018) and took part in the Max Planck Junior Scholars Program at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research (Frankfurt am Main) in 2013-2014.
