Microbiology and Greenhouse gas dynamics of Inland Wetlands
Giuditta’s main interest lies in the field of water ecology, more in detail microbial ecology and microbiology. The possibility of connecting microbial ecology with biochemistry in order to bring benefits to the community, leaded her to become interested in working with BCL. Her PhD thesis involves: 1) improving inland wetlands activity efficiency by properly optimizing carbon sequestration as well as reducing to minimum the greenhouse gases release, 2) identifying key microbial communities and genes that are highly considered to be involved in carbon metabolism, 3) providing new standards and major advantages to scientific community through the constant monitoring of carbon fluxes field from the Australian floodplain freshwater wetlands.
