I am Associate Professor in Integrative Metabolism at the University of Reading, which I joined in 2010. My research focuses on the host-gut microbial metabolic interactions in order to link gut microbial ecology to metabolic health.

This is achieved using a combination of molecular tools to screen the microbiome (i.e. the gut microbial genome) and the metabolome (i.e. all detectable metabolites in a sample). Modern microbial sequencing technologies¬†are applied to assess variations in the microbiome in combination with metabolic profiling (metabonomics) ¬†together with other molecular biological tools to measure modulations of the metabolism. I have 10 years of experience using NMR-based metabolic profiling and was trained during my PhD in Prof Jeremy K Nicholson’s lab at Imperial College London, the world leader in metabonomics technologies.

My research interests can be classified around 2 main axes:

1- Exploration of the impact of gut microbiota on metabolic disorders including type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome

2- Investigation of drug-bug interactions
