Dr Michiel Vos is a senior lecturer combining approaches from microbiology, evolutionary ecology and population genomics to study bacterial evolution.
His main research foci are horizontal gene transfer, sociomicrobiology and pathogens in the environment.
Investigating pathogens present in soil through the application of the Galleria mellonella model.
Exploring the ecological drivers of drug resistant pathogens in aquatic environments.
Investigating selection for antimicrobial resistance by plant protection products.
How do environmental factors shape the ratio of vertical to horizontal resistance evolution?
