How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Biologist | Microbiologist | PhD in Antimicrobial Resistance in Wastewater. I am interested in many aspects of microbiology, including wastewater surveillance of pathogens and plasmid dissemination.
Amplicon sequencing, metagenomics, and quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) are commonly used techniques to analyse microorganisms and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in activated sludge from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). However, the lack of workflow harmonisation poses challenges in comparing measurements across studies and res...
Plasmid-mediated dissemination of antibiotic resistance among fecal Enterobacteriaceae in natural ecosystems may contribute to the persistence of antibiotic resistance genes in anthropogenically impacted environments. Plasmid transfer frequencies measured under laboratory conditions might lead to overestimation of plasmid transfer potential in natu...
The occurrence and removal patterns of 24 antimicrobial agents and antimicrobial resistant determinants namely 6 antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) and 2 mobile genetic elements (MGEs), and the fecal indica- tor E. coli were investigated in three full-scale wastewater treatment plants. Their waterlines and biosolids lines (including secondary treat...
Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), linking human fecal residues and the environment, are considered as hotspots for the spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In order to evaluate the role of WWTPs and underlying operational parameters for the removal of AMR, the presence and removal efficiency of a selected set of 6 antimicrobial resistance g...
