Ms Flavia Tarquinio

Overview of PhD Project

Flavia Tarquinio is a PhD student interested in understanding the ecological role of prokaryotes associated to seagrass leaves and their contribution to the plant’s nutrient requirement.

This will be determined through a range of field and laboratory studies including the innovative technique "NanoSIMS" in collaboration with the University of Western Australia.
