  • Biography/ Background

    Maria Angelica "Angel" Rea is a PhD student in Frank Reith's Lab. Her topic focuses on the transformation of gold(Au)-particles and (bio)geochemical processes including mineralisation, microbial community composition, and physical weathering. She can perform bioinformatics analysis on 16S NGS metagenomics data. She is also competent in the use and applications of scanning electron microscopy, laser ablation inductively coupled mass spectroscopy and single particle ICP-MS in various biological and (eco)toxicological applications.
