Charlotte Vavourakis MSc

  • Scientific researcher

Charlotte is an expert in microbial community analysis and microbial-mediated element cycles occurring in various aquatic environments. During her PhD project at the University of Amsterdam, she worked on the detection of novel microbes in Siberian salt lakes with Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), using a combination of gene-targeted amplicon sequencing and direct metagenomics. She aims at tackling drinking-water related issues with similar molecular techniques, focusing on the detection and quantification of DNA.
