Scientific collaborator and laboratory technician
I am interested in the ecology , diversity and interaction of micro-organisms.
The research I carried out during my PhD focused on a better understanding of function of protozoa in the rhizosphere (the soil under the influence of the root).
Currently, I'm collaborating in two different projects:
- Phylogeny, taxonomy, biodiversity, and biogeography of soil protists with special focus on testate amoebae, laboratory of soil bilogy
- Diversity of spore-forming micro-organisms in natural communities, laboratory of microbiology
