My research is primarily focused in the fields of Bioanalysis & Marine Biotechnology and aims at developing innovative practices for the effective valorization of marine biological resources, including raw biomass, metabolites, biomolecules or bioactive substances. The exploitation of marine organisms for bioremediation purposes, biodegradation of organic pollutants or other beneficial uses are also among my research interests. To accomplish my research objectives, I employ bioanalysis as my main tool. I use a repertoire of bioanalytical methods, not only for detecting the presence of specific compounds, but also for accurately quantifying their concentration in organisms. Moreover, I am interested in developing new analytical methods for measuring target biomolecules in a more efficient, convenient and cost-effective way. Besides biotechnological applications, I am interested in the study of key biomolecules (metabolites, metabolism-regulating compounds and proteins) that may play a central role in the physiological functions of marine organisms or provide important information about the identity (e.g. chemotaxonomy), the properties (e.g. bioactivity, biotoxicity), the inherent biological characteristics (e.g. gender, maturity) or the disorders (e.g. stress) of marine organisms.
