The MicroResist Lab is a research group dedicated to the study of microorganisms. Our research is focused on understanding, measuring, and mitigating environmental microbial threats to human and animal health, especially in the context of global changes. Our primary research interests include the ecology of pathogens and multidrug-resistant bacteria in the environment. Additionally, we have been working on characterizing and exploring the environmental microbiomes, with a particular emphasis on developing microbiome-inspired, nature-based solutions.
