My ambition is to drive progress and high impact on results coming from R&D projects, so that I enjoyed an environment of continuous learning, challenging experiences, and enriching career opportunities. I build my high scientific and technical expertise during my PhD, which lasted 8 years, in different branches applied to cyanobacteria (Environmental Toxicology; Analytical Chemistry; Microbiology; Plant Physiology; Genetics and Molecular Biology among others) as shown in my high impact publications (getting more than 400 citations).
