Mateu Menéndez Serra

Graduated in Environmental Sciences (UB) and Master in Research and Advances in Microbiology (UGR), my scientific interests are focused on the microbial communities inhabiting water bodies of diverse origins. My doctoral thesis focuses on establishing consistent relationships between empirical microbial data and ecology theories of biodiversity organization in space and time. For this purpose, I work with a dataset mainly composed by amplicon metagenomic data of water samples from saline lagoons in the Monegros area, which I analyze applying different statistical and theoretical approaches.
