Alice Melzi

I’m Alice Melzi, an Italian student doing a Master in Agro-Environmental Sciences. I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Technology for the Environment. During my bachelor thesis I isolated and characterized hydrocarbon degrading bacterial strains from the rhizo-endosphere of a plant inhabiting hydrocarbon contaminated soil. Topics such as environmental protection and bioremediation of contaminated sites, have always spark vivid interest in me, so I decided to spend my Master thesis internship at CIIMAR, in the Ecobiotec Team, taking part in the Biorem project, in order to enrich my knowledge on the topic of environmental bioremediation.
