Dr. Xabier Vázquez Campos
Position: Research Associate
Department: Water Research Centre
University/Institute/Company: The University of New South Wales
My research interests can be broadly included inside microbial ecology, and revolve around the study of the microbes thriving in unusual and/or extreme environments, and the associated biogeochemistry. This includes systematics, astrobiology, bioremediation or biomining amongst other topics.
My skills cover both classic and modern microbiological techniques, including the analysis of High Throughput Sequencing (HTS) data. If you are interested in using HTS for microbial community profiling, genome sequencing, metagenomics,… and you are looking for a collaborator, I’m open to it.
Disciplines: Biology, Geoscience
