I am interested in biogeochemistry of inland waters. My PhD research is part of a bigger project focusing on the processing of carbon in hydroelectric reservoirs in Brazil. The project includes a spatially resolved evaluation both of the mayor emission pathways and of the sediment carbon sink.
I am studying organic matter characteristics and sources of organic carbon in hydropower reservoirs. I am working on finding the origin of organic matter buried in hydroelectric reservoirs in Brazil, which I study by the means of lipid biomarkers analysis with GC-MS, chlorine index and stable isotopes. Additionally, I aim to evaluate if and to which extent already buried organic matter will still be mineralized.
