As a microbiology researcher with a background in environmental sciences, I had the chance to manage several projects in the frame of environmental pollutants, food safety, and antimicrobial resistance. During my work in technological centers, I was able to isolate, maintain, and characterize the microorganisms that live in endemic aromatic plants of the Mediterranean region.
Along all the experiences in my professional career, I understood the importance of novel strategies development. Innovative solutions are crucial to overcome the global health issues that our society is facing in the present. Contamination of natural resources, food spoilage, and infectious diseases are not to be belittled. I believe that biotechnology and microbiology techniques will help tackle this multifaceted problem from different perspectives.
