I’m a geomicrobiologist with current research interests in microbial ecology, functionality and astrobiology. I'm presently working on a project called DeepHotMicrobe determining the limits of life in the deep terrestrial crystalline bedrock, going as deep as 7 km and describing the factors possibly hindering microbial life at these depths. We aim to evaluate the possibility of sustainability of life in analogous environments and understand the survival strategies of life on early Earth.
