I am a microbial molecular ecologist. I have been involved in the projects evaluating the effects of environmental and anthropogenic stressors (such as the impact of aquaculture, oil & gas production, municipal sewage discharges) on changes in marine and freshwater diversity. I am interested in genosensing and portable solutions for environmental DNA/RNA based monitoring i.e. development and simplification of molecular methods for targeted detection and quantification (digital PCR/ quantitative PCR techniques) and biodiversity assessment. I am experienced with design of, participation in and coordination of laboratory and field-scale experiments, including seawater mesocosms. Currently, I am working in the projects on monitoring human pathogens and antimicrobial resistance in the environmental settings.
