Research Interest

My research focuses on the diversity of microbial communities in freshwater streams, trying to understand how the diversity varies from catchment soils to streams and then along streams and to figure which factors are driving this distribution. The overall objective is to perceive the impact of such transfers on stream microbial biodiversity. Throughout my multidisciplinary education, I had the chance to work on microorganisms and realized their tremendous impact on ecosystems and the necessity to understand the structure of their communities and the roles they carry out in their environments.
