I’m a Ramón y Cajal researcher at the University of the Balearic Islands, Spain, surfing the wave of molecular microbiology, eager to know the answer to key ecological questions.
As a pro-active group leader, I am developing a vibrant research group and lucky to have some really great people!
Dr. Joseph Christie-Oleza
If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.
Dr Mar Aguilo-Ferretjans
Senior research technician
Mar is working on the Spanish-funded project polyDEmar. As well as characterising plastic biodegradation, she is looking into marine interactions between phototrophs and heterotrophs, maintaining the lab's culture collections amongst many other tasks!
Sharing what you know is one of the most enriching experience of being a scientist. Encourage others and yourself to understand a bit more of the science behind what we see.
