Johan Bengtsson-Palme
Assistant Professor, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
My research group works with microbiology and microbial ecology, primarily focusing on investigating antibiotic resistance and interactions in bacterial communities through large-scale experimental work, metagenomics and bioinformatics. I did my PhD with Prof. Joakim Larsson and a post-doc with Prof. Jo Handelsman at University of Wisconsin-Madison.
