The aim of my research is to increase the applied knowledge on microbial interactions with their environment, mainly filamentous fungi (including edible mushrooms), either improving their valuable functions or reducing their undesired ones. This includes studies on ecology and biotechnology of Morel mushroom, bacteria/fungi interaction, fungal biodegradation of organic and inorganic matter, interaction of fungi with minerals and search for new biological sources of antifungal compounds. The laboratory also works on other applied research topics in food, soil and water microbiology.
