Curriculum Vitae

Supervisor: Teresa Romeo
Appointed on project: PON Marine Hazard

Research Interests

Even today, the main source of marine pollution comes from oil. Precisely for this reason, the hydrocarbon degrading bacteria that are part of the marine microbial community capable of degrading hydrocarbons play a very important role. Within the Marine Hazard project I would like to evaluate the stress of some marine organisms, in environments with hydrothermal activity, due to environmental contamination and the implementation of experimental methods for bioremediation. All this by exploiting molecular methods and classical microbiology associated with an accurate chemical analysis. My studies take place in the laboratory but also in the field by carrying out numerous samplings
