Over the last months, several new people joined our group:
Clémentine Laffont has joined our lab as a postdoctoral researcher. Her work will focus on the interactions between bacteria to experimentally test the “competition sensing” theory.
PhD Student Lukas Schwyter will work on the evolution of interaction networks among pathogens isolated from the lungs of children suffering from cystic fibrosis.
Flavie Roncoroni is doing her master thesis with us, and will examine how siderophore treatment affects selection for antibiotic resistance.
Xuedi Huang is a visiting student from China and is currently studying the evolution of pyoverdin receptors.
We are happy to welcome you all to the group!
Our work on the dual role of siderophores as public goods or public bads was published in Ecology Letters.
Congratulations to all involved!
