My research interests include fluorescence microscopy and microbiology. In my doctoral research project, I’m using the gut-on-chip model to visualize and study the microbial communication with human intestine. This 3D in-vitro model closely resembles the anatomical structure of a human intestine and allows us to study the innate immune response and microbial pathogenicity mechanisms that can lead to infections, chronic inflammation and other bowel diseases.
