Post-Doctoral Researcher Fellow

Research Activities
My research activities include:
-The implementation of small-scale strategies targeted at easing the translation of biocatalytic systems to industrial manufacture.
-The screening for industrial relevant enzymatic activities in unexplored habitats such as the marine ecosystems.
-The development of novel methodologies and process conditions for the production of bioactive compounds of industrial relevance using marine bacteria.
