Who am I

I am a microbial physiologist with expertise in microbial central metabolism and anaerobic pathways for energy generation.

a Biography

I would like to be able to converge my scientific knowledge, leadership, and spirituality, to contribute knowledge, inspire other people to find their way.

I am passionate about the world of microbiology and discovering how it affects and how it can improve «in all its levels» the world in which we live. All the projects captivate me, they make everything of me, I get involved a thousand times a thousand to give answers to the most unexpected questions.

One of my first projects was the postgraduate project I did for NASA where “Using synthetic microbial communities as a tool to explore the role of microbial interactions to overcome ROS toxicity under reconstructed ancient (pre-GOE) conditions. Provided expertise in flow cytometry in collaborative project with other NPP fellow”.
