Comparative, functional and evolutionary genomics of extremophiles
Extremophiles, acidophiles
Evolution and origin of Life
Metagenomics, phylogenomics, astrobiology


My research involves polyextremophilic microorganisms through bioinformatic and (meta)genomic approaches, focusing in acidophiles and deep biosphere microbiomes, in order to provide fundamental knowledge about them and to propose metabolic and evolutionary models.

My skills are mainly genomics including comparative genomics, metagenomics, phylogenomic and development of bioinformatic techniques and pipelines, which allow to interpretate and model building of the resulting data.
