With us at the MEG: Manuela spent 2 years as a post-doc at the MEG, working on Bacterial and Archaeal communities of mainly aquatic systems, in particular freshwaters, and their structure and functioning. She focussed her investigation on microorganisms involved in the nitrogen cycle and in the process of the oxidation of ammonia. In addition , She was involved in the ACTION 2 (Parameter and Method elaboration) of the Project "Enveurope": Environmental quality and pressures assessment across Europe: the LTER network as an integrated and shared system for ecosystem monitoring. Finally, she studied antibiotic resistance bacteria in artificial systems.
Now, Manuela is the President of Microb&co Association and she is promoting microbial ecology within the society, bringing critical problems from the field to stakeholders at the national and international level. She is also collaborating with the University of Catania.
