Christian L. Lauber, PhD
Christian Lauber, PhD, is a broadly trained microbial ecologist interested in how microbiome composition relates to microbiome function and the delivery of ecosystem services in natural and host associated environments. Chris obtained his PhD in Biology from the University of New Mexico and was a post doc in the labs of Dr. Noah Fierer and Dr. Rob Knight at the University of Colorado before moving to Switzerland to work for Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences and École Polytechnique Fédéral de Lausanne. His current research aims to leverage next generation sequencing of the microbiome to support best outcomes for children.
