Establishment of the IDE lab

Our research is focused on the evolution and epidemiology of infectious diseases, especially in the context of antimicrobial resistance. We utilise a broad range of genomic, phenomic and machine learning approaches to understand the dissemination of pathogens within and between environmental and clinical settings and to pinpoint genetic factors driving the evolution of pathogens. Moreover, we employ machine learning approaches for predicting bacterial complex phenotypic features, e.g. bacterial growth, antimicrobial resistance, and horizontal gene transfer, from genomic variants.

The lab is currently accepting MSc and PhD students, visitor students (through paid scholarship schemes), postdocs and technicians. Please get in touch at to learn about the positions.
