I am a portuguese student with a background on microbiology and bioinformatics.
My PhD will involve working with microbes within the deep subsurface, mostly by means of bioinformatics. Further, we aim to investigate deep subsurface biofilm formation under super-critical carbon dioxide conditions, so as to simulate true geological carbon storage conditions.
