Alice Zublena
Visiting master student (Université Côte d’Azur)


Alice is working on establishing sub-lethal concentrations of beta-lactam antibiotics that have effects on complex microbial communities, particularly on invasibility and community stability. Her project will shed light on some of the secondary effects of antibiotic exposure in the environment.
