Short bio

My research work is focused on the study of photosynthetic pigments of marine organisms. I work in the isolation, purification and structural identification of the chlorophyll and carotenoid molecules of microalgae and photosynthetic bacteria, in the study of their responses to environmental factors (especially the intensity and quality of light), in their distribution in different taxa and in their presence in natural waters as chemomarkers of the organisms in which they occurr. For all this, an important part of my work consists in the development of new methods of analysis, especially of high performance liquid chromatography
