We are fascinated by how evolution shapes the interactions at the molecular and single-cell scale to give rise to collective behaviors at the population scale.

By using an interdisciplinary approach rooted in experimental microbiology, statistical physics and population genetics, we strive to uncover the fundamental principles behind these phenomena.
