Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Physiology



My main research interests are focused on discovering novel metabolic processes in anaerobic microorganisms able to degrade hydrocarbons, and in understanding the biochemical mechanisms used by microorganisms to attack the hydrocarbon molecule in the absence of oxygen. Presently I study the anaerobic degradation of gaseous alkanes (ethane, propane and butane), of cyclic alkanes (cyclohexane, cyclopentane), and of aromatic hydrocarbons (benzene and naphthalene).
