My research is centered around combining multi-omics and visual approaches to elucidate microbial interactions in extreme environments. I currently focus on the structures and dynamics of supraglacial microbial communities. I use electron microscopy techniques adapted to the specificities of field (Greenland) ice samples (cryo-SEM) and X-ray techniques (X-ray computed tomography) to visualize the 3D structure of microbial layers in the top-meter glacial ice.
