My PhD project aim to describe the composition of bacteria in the home environment and investigate the relationship between exposure to these bacteria and respiratory health.

My main research interest includes :

  • Indoor Airborne Bacterial Commuities. 
  • Lipopolysaccharides (endotoxin).
  • Antibiotic Resisitance Genes.
  • Farm Microbiome.
  • Allergy and Astham.
