I’m studying the link between alterations in the gut microbiota and the glucose homeostasis in mice using metagenomics and other omics-approaches. An internship at Nestlé research center allowed me to learn from experts about children gut microbiota and to realize my first publications. Now, I’m doing a PhD at University of Geneva in the lab of Prof. Mirko Trajkovski and are co-supervised by Prof. Evgeny Zdobnov. I like to cook with my wife and to dance Salsa, but not both on the same time.

Malnutrition predisposes to diarrhea and diarrhea adversely affects the nutritional status creating a vicious cycle. 1 The role of the gut microbiome in malnutrition is an active research area. 2 Parenteral antibiotics are recommended by the World Health Organization in hospitalized pediatric patients with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) presenting signs of infections.3 Stool microbiota data for such patients are, however, lacking. To fill this gap, we studied the stool microbiota in 19 SAM patients from Bangladesh hospitalized with acute diarrhea (AD) and compared it with that of matched 20 healthy control subjects (HC).
