Research interests

As a molecular biologist and biotechnologist, I applied my knowledge to human cellular studies first and then to diatoms. My research project focuses on a trans-disciplinary investigation of lipid pathways in diatoms. Through the development of methods for genetic manipulation and with molecular studies of sulfotransferase-mediated and LOX pathways in Pseudo-nitzschia arenysensis and Thalassiosira pseudonana species I will elucidate the biochemical steps involved, exploiting genetic resources.
