The overall theme in my research is to understand the physiology of microorganisms living in deep-sea hydrothermal vent systems by the use of culturing, molecular biology, biochemistry and geochemistry.

Specific questions that I address are:

What is the diversity of energy metabolisms of hydrothermal vent microorganisms?

How do they link the cycling of carbon, nitrogen and sulfur in the system?

Do they have enzymes useful in biotechnology?

Syntrophic conversion of amino acids to methane in hydrothermal vent systems -The main focus of this master project will be to reveal the biochemistry behind syntrophic growth on amino acids of Vallitalea guaymasensis L81 and Methanoplanus limicola by cultivation experiments, proteomics and protein chemistry. Vallitalea guaymasensis L81 is a mesophilic, fermentative microorganisms isolated from the Loki´s Castle vent field.

Sulfate reducing bacteria involved in syntrophic conversion of short chain hydrocabons - The main focus of this master project will be to analyze reconstructed genomes of putative sulfate reducing partners involved in anaerobic conversions of short chain hydrocarbons. Based on metabolic predictions, enrichment cultures will be intitated and growth followed using geochemical and microbiological methods. The main study area will be the Loki´s Castle vent field.
