Postdoctoral fellow working on the Metabolic genetics section in Mani Arumugam's group. We focus on studying the gut microbiota in disease or after treatment targeting the gut microbes. I am currently  in interventional studies targeting the human gut microbiota such as gastric bypass, weight loss and antibiotics treatment. I am also involved in other projects where we are studying the gut microbiota in childhood obesity and colorectal cancer.

My tasks include the quality control and processing of the next generation sequencing reads, the taxonomical and functional characterization of those reads, and the data analysis based on the microbial and microbial gene abundances.
