Chemistry Degree from the University of Chile.
Most of my initial work has been on speciation of heavy metals and
quantification of different contaminated areas.
Actually my work is related with growth of microorganisms under
anaerobic and microaerophilic conditions and the characterization in
different extreme environments. I also study the relation of the
environment with the specific metabolic characteristics of the
extremophiles that inhabit them.
I support on chemical aspects relatives to the dynamic and behaviour of
species in differents environments.
Actually, I am working on a project related with growth and
characterization of psycrophiles, and hyperthermophiles from Antarctic
and the determination of superoxide dismutase activity in this kind of
