I am a researcher at the Biofilm Centre, Universität Duisburg-Essen.

My research is intended to contribute to the elucidation of the physiological and molecular processes involved in the biofilm formation of acidophilic leaching bacteria with emphasis in their cell-cell communication mechanisms.

In SysMetEx, our role is to understand the main factors influencing biofilm formation of themophilic bioleaching bacteria at microscopy and OMICS levels, in order to further optimize it.
