My research concerns the development and dissemination of antibiotic resistance in anthropogenically-polluted environments. My work is mainly focused on the effects of antibiotic pollution on environmental bacteria and their associated resistome and the relationships between antibiotic dose and the response observed in environmental bacteria. My research addresses the selective potential of sub-inhibitory concentrations of antibiotics in situ and the role that environmental physico-chemical properties play in the interaction between antibiotics and environmental bacteria, using a combination of metagenomics and qPCR/RT-qPCR. In addition, I’m interested in the effects of anthropogenic activity (not necessarily antibiotic pollution) on resistance development in the environment and the potential dissemination of environmental resistance to the human microbiome, as well as the consequences of antibiotic use in the human microbiome.
