Studying the impact of microbes in the environment on Earth system and on Health

Welcome to the Atmospheric & Environmental Microbiology Lab

Airborne microorganisms (bioaerosols), traveling across long distances, can significantly affect ecosystems, biogeochemical cycles, and human health.

To enhance their chances of surviving the aerial journey, adaptations like resistance to UV radiation and desiccation, or affiliation with particulate matter, come into play. Yet, these survival mechanisms as well as the bioactivity of microbes in the air are mostly underexplored.

Startup ISF1

In our group, we explore the far-reaching impacts of bioaerosols, including their contribution to global cycles, microbial ecology, and pathogenicity transmittance.
