Research Interests

My research is focused on studying the diversity, functions, and biotechnological potential of microbial communities in different marine ecosystems, especially under extreme environmental conditions. In particular, during my post-doc, I am studying marine microbes (mainly bacteria and fungi) for the development of advanced and innovative biotechnologies for reducing the sediment contamination levels of selected polluted marine areas (especially focusing on petroleum hydrocarbons and heavy metals). To do this, I study the microbial diversity and processes in highly-impacted coastal sites through molecular, bioinformatics, biochemical and analytical techniques, coupled with targeted isolation of microbial strains and laboratory experiments for marine sediment bioremediation approaches.
