Research Interests

Molecular adaptations in models of prokaryotes and eukaryotes from extreme environments; vulnerability to climate change. Impacts on ecosystems of fast climate change occurring in the polar regions, and pressures arising from global change, invasive species, human impacts, and extreme events. Production of changes in individuals, populations and communities by synergistic stresses. Multidisciplinary studies of current biological processes in polar ecosystems, to define tolerance limits/thresholds and thereby determine resistance and resilience to environmental changes, also by means of structural/functional analysis of genes and proteins, in the framework of impacts on adaptations and evolution.

Interest on polar marine organisms: (i) they are amongst the most vulnerable species to climate change; (ii) micro/macro-organisms are a valuable source of natural products that can function as start structures of new molecules for drug discovery. New projects are aimed at taking advantage of biodiversity of marine organisms for the development of novel bioactive compounds.

Protein structure and function

From 2000 to now, I led work on protein structure/function, most importantly on observing that levels of structural flexibility were much higher at very low temperatures. My policy on publications with my staff is that, while I provide the scientific direction and drive for ongoing research, I encourage them to draft the papers in order to help them to develop as scientists. This means that I often appear as last author, even though I have led the intellectual components of the work. As leading and corresponding author, I significantly contribute to data interpretation and paper editing and revision.

My research focuses on two areas: molecular adaptations to polar marine environments and responses to environmental change. I have a leading international profile in both areas. My work is mainly experimental. My main focus in the last 5 years has been on characterising protein response to environmental conditions and how adaptation to environments affects this, aiming at safeguarding biodiversity from the impacts of current global warming. Since 2000, in collaboration with other authors, I demonstrated the hexa-coordination in fish hemoglobins. I then extended this research to Antarctic bacterial globins by incorporating novel technologies in this area, and used genomics in collaboration with Illinois University to characterise proteins such neuroglobin and cytoglobin (discovered by us in Antarctic fish) with important biomedical perspectives (including Alzheimer’s disease).

I am a leading science communicator, as shown by the number of lectures given in many international countries since 2000. My influence on policymakers comes from roles such as my membership in the Steering Committee of AnT-ERA, the Scientific Research Programme of SCAR for the exchange of knowledge and for the support of research on BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES at ecological time scales especially related to environmental change.

Future developments

In the immediate future and over the next 10 years, I will develop my main research theme of adaptation and responses to environmental change and new projects for the development of novel bioactive compounds from Antarctic microorganisms.
