Biologist, Ph.D. in Biotechnology, Universidad de Santiago de Chile

My main scientific interest is in microorganisms that thrive in extreme environments, especially halophilic and psychrophilic Bacteria and Archaea. Specific molecular adaptations allow these microorganisms to survive harsh conditions. Understand fundamentals of cellular function reveals new opportunities for sustainable exploitation.
Actually I am working in my Doctoral thesis based on the study of molecular biostabilizers from novel halophilic bacteria isolated from the Atacama Desert in Chile.
My experience is on Isolation and cultivation of halophilic and psychrophilic microorganisms, bidimensional analysis of proteins, molecular Identification and classification of Bacteria and Archaea, purification and analysis of bacterial metabolites.
