Research interests

Environmental Microbiology Microbial toxicology Marine Microbiology

About

My current interests are related to the Microbial Oceanography field and Metagenomics analysis of microbial communities. Right now I’m focused on the sulfur cycle and the microbes that are involve in this processes throughout the water column in a seasonal oxygen minimum zone (OMZ)
