My PhD study foccussed on the identification of microbial populations present in electroactive biofilms generated in sea water (Genova, Italy) and in the anoxic compartiment of a waste water treatment plant (Duisburg, Germany). My current research project is the identification of the bacterial flora of clinical samples obtained from mechanically ventillated patients. Also, the interaction between different kinds of nosocomial pathogens is investigated.
