Short BIO

I am a molecular ecologist exploring the microbial world. My research lines are related to the study of the diversity and function of microorganisms in aquatic systems, mainly the picoplankton.

 

During my career,  I   moved from exploring questions in single communities to complex metacommunities, and from freshwater systems to the global ocean. I have conducted multifaceted research, combining traditional laboratory techniques (i.e. microscopy, flow cytometry) with state-of-the-art omics techniques.

Role in AtlantECO

In AtlantECO I am mainly involved in work packages 2, 4, and 10.

 

Particularly, I am involved in the assemblage and analysis of existing and new genomic data into high-quality information, for a better understanding of the structure and function of the Atlantic ocean microbiome. The data includes metabarcoding, metagenomics, and metatranscriptomics information about viruses, prokaryotes, and eukaryotes in the Atlantic Ocean. 

 

Besides, as part of the Mission Microbiome and AtlantECO, I participated in the Amazon River Plume expedition dedicated to studying the impact of the Amazon River on the Atlantic Microbiome. I also was on board of TARA between Punta Arenas to Cape Town as part of the Emmy Noether expedition and participated in the first part of the Ana Maria Gayoso expedition from Ushuaia to Buenos Aires on board B. Houssay.

AtlantECO Results

  • I also contribute to the compilation and analysis of molecular data for the AtlantECO-BASE1 database.
