Jana Rigonato

I am a Ph.D. in Science/Microbiology in Agriculture; my research work has gradually converged to the OMICs field to understand how microbes respond to environmental change. In the last ten years, I was either in charge or collaborator of projects exploring ecological and evolutionary factors that determine the structure, function, and diversity of microbial communities in different habitats at various temporal and geographical scales. My work combined traditional culture isolation and laboratory studies with cutting-edge DNA sequencing and bioinformatics approaches. I also was lecturer for courses in Graduate programs (Masters and Ph.D. levels) that, together with mentoring activities (1 Ph.D. co-supervision, one master and, six undergrad students), improved my skills in sharing scientific knowledge.
