Introduction
PhD postgraduate researcher in Dr Kroon’s research group at Quadram Institute Bioscience, UK. My research interests focused on understanding the interaction between polyphenols and human gut microbiome. First-Class Hons MSc degree in Food Quality and Chemistry of Natural Products after BSc Hons degree in Biochemistry.

New findings: What is the topic of this review? This review summarises the role of the gut microbiome in physiology and how it can be targeted as an effective strategy against two of the most important global medical challenges of our time namely, metabolic diseases and antibacterial resistance. What advances does it highlight? We outline the crit...

The gut microbiota is critical to the maintenance of physiological homeostasis and as such is implicated in a range of diseases such as colon cancer, ulcerative colitis, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases. Short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) are key metabolites produced by the gut microbiota from the fermentation of dieta...

Purpose Plasma trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO) levels have been shown to correlate with increased risk of metabolic diseases including cardiovascular diseases. TMAO exposure predominantly occurs as a consequence of gut microbiota-dependent trimethylamine (TMA) production from dietary substrates including choline, carnitine and betaine, which is then...

Artemisia arborescens and Artemisia inculta Delile, two species endemic to the island of Crete (southern Greece) were examined with regard to their essential oil composition. The main constituents of A. arborescens essential oil were found to be camphor (30.51%), trans-thujone (18.42%), and chamazulene (15.72%), while those of A. inculta were 1,8-c...

A step-by-step optimisation of an extraction process was carried out, with the aim of establishing an eco-friendly methodology for polyphenol recovery from two endemic Cretan Artemisia species. The extraction medium composed of water and glycerol, and the optimisation included factors that were critical to the process, such as glycerol concentratio...

Question
Is it possible for the same compound but origins from two different pathways (one synthetic and the other is biological) behave slightly different on LC in terms of retention time?
Question
Volatile oil is analyzed by GC-MS. In many literature we find a data column beside the identified compounds call linear retention index.
