AngelikiMy role in Villefranche:
My role in Stareso mesocosm experiments would be to measure bacterial production as well as prokaryotic respiration. I will be collecting samples for flow cytometric analysis (for cyanobacteria, heterotrophic bacteria and viruses).

More about my research:
I am a marine technologist, working at the microbial ecology laboratory, HCMR in Athens. Well, it’s not my research but I am active member of the microbial team experienced in a variety of techniques as a result of my ten year involvement in research science. Key person of the lab for regular sampling and field work. My long term occupation in HCMR includes radioisotope measurements (bacterial production as well as primary production), chlorophyll analysis, culture of autotrophic and heterotrophic microorganisms. So far I have participated in many research projects mainly focused on the microbial food web in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea as well as in mesocosm experiments.
