Philippe is now recruiting highly motivated and dynamic graduate students for (1) the analysis of the environmental control on bacteria scavenging H2-and CO using metagenomic approaches and (2) the development of genomic barcodes as indicator for ecological risk assessment in forest.

Sarah Piché-Choquette
received a Bachelor degree in Biological Sciences (specialization microbiology and immunology) at the UNiversité de Montréal (2013) and joined our group for a M.Sc. degree in Applied Microbiology in May 2013 and initiated a Ph.D. in 2014. She is using high-throughput sequencing technologies (Illumina) and molecular ecological network analysis to unveil how H2 diffusing from N2-fixing nodule is shaping soil microbial community structure.



Mondher Khdhiri obtained a Licence in Biological Sciences - Molecular and cellular Biology and Biotechnology (2010) and a Master in Molecular Genetics in Tunisia (2013). He joined our team in October 2013 for a Ph.D. in Biology (co-superivised by Jonathan Perreault). He is using metagenomic and metatranscriptomic tools to analyze the impact of H2 on soil microbial community structure and function.

Asma Jaba joined our team in September 2016 for a M.Sc. (cosupervised by Prof. Claude Guertin) to study microbe-microbe interactions supporting the colonization and proliferation of enterobacteria in food.
