Our group in general focuses on measuring and understanding the behavior and ecology of bacteria in drinking water systems from source to tap, using state-of-the-art methods and bridging basic research questions with real-life applications.
Currently, our main research projects deal with the microbiome of drinking water in building plumbing systems. We study basic aspects of biofilm formation with emphasis on flexible polymeric materials in contact with potable water and we explore the potential of so-called probiotic bacterial communities in plumbing systems.
We furthermore specifically investigate Legionella contamination in buildings, including the environmental drivers, ecological interactions, and possible mitigation strategies.
