My thesis project is centered around understanding the mechanisms bacterial pathogens use to take full advantage both of the human host and the gut microbiota. I am specifically looking into the metabolism of short chain fatty acids and the acquisition of antibiotic resistance. The model pathogens the lab uses are Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium and Escherichia coli.
