I am a post-doctoral researcher working on the role of anaerobic bacteria and archaea in biogeochemical C cycling in aerated soils. I have a background in biodegradation of organic compounds, and water and wastewater treatment processes. In my doctoral research, I focused on microbially-mediated degradation of energetic compounds using Fe(II) and humic substances as electron shuttles (dissertation). I investigated how metabolically diverse bacteria (iron-reducing, photosynthetic, and fermentative) can promote reductive degradation by non-specific electron shuttling reactions, commonly occurring in subsurface environments. The focus area of my M.Sc. was water supply, sewage and waste treatment, and water quality protection. During my master’s studies, I took one-semester course in water extraction and water supply at Engineering College of Aarhus in Denmark. I wrote a thesis on optimization of energy consumption by a system of groundwater extraction pumps using a newly developed software. Laboratory techniques: High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Ion Chromatography (IC), Gas Chromatography (GC), Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS, GC-MS), UV-Vis Spectrophotometry, Fluorescence Spectroscopy, molecular techniques (DNA extraction, polymerase chain reaction – PCR, quantitative PCR – qPCR, gel electrophoresis), aerobic and anaerobic cell culture techniques
