Research activity

Her PhD project aims at developing new plant biostimulants based on the formulation of beneficial microbial consortia within the EU project INTERFUTURE. In her previous activities, she worked on the characterization of microbial biodiversity on marshes using microbiological and molecular techniques (DGGE). Another part of her work was dedicated to the characterization of proteases produced by an extreme halophilic bacterium.

Research interests

Microbiology molecular, sequencing of genomes, plant biostimulants, plantassociated microorganism.
