My field of research is Aquatic and Aerial Microbial Ecology. Present research activities are oriented to explore the temporal dynamics and diversity of airborne microorganisms , and also studying the ecology and diversity of eukaryotic microorganisms (Protists) from different inland aquatic systems (high mountain lakes, saline lagoons, and euxinic ponds). Different collaborations on general microbial ecology aspects covering other areas (soil, gut and indoor microbiota) have been carried out recently.
