I have a big interest in understanding how our gut microbiota (all microorganisms in our gut) is affected by our diet, and how the gut microbiota affects the host. To understand this, I study how the metabolism of the microbiota and host change upon different interventions (i.e. gluten, whole-grain, probiotics) by studying the metabolites in the gut, blood and urine. This research includes the use of mass spectrometry, multivariate analyses, statistics, biochemistry, bacterial metabolism - also summarised as metabolomics.

SF7489 Biological Fungicide

Starting life as a food colouring candidate, this novel metabolite from a unique strain of Epiccocum purpurascens has excellent efficacy against a broad range of phytopathogenic filamentous fungi, and potential pharmaceutical uses. More >>>
