I am a microbiologist with research interests in the fields of Molecular and Applied Microbiology.
I am presently an Assistant Professor leading research on genetics of hydrocarbon biodegradation, mechanisms of metal resistance and composition/activity of microbial communities in extreme environments.
During my Ph.D. and Post-Doc, I have worked on biodegradation of chlorinated compounds and hydrocarbon metabolism, bio-hydrogen production, bacterial motility and chemotaxis, and biodegradation of naphthenic acids.
During my scientific carrier, I have spent research periods at i) Centre of Ecology and Hydrology (2006) in Oxford (UK), ii) Osaka University (Japan) (2009), iii) Calgary University (Canada) (2009-2010 and 2014).
