Working in getting Pseudomonas putida in shape for efficient bioproduction towards a sustainable future!
Mariela owns a cute and affectionate white cat named Barry White who is always eager to eat unhealthy amounts of tuna. They have been together for more than 8 years and Mariela carried (surprisingly peaceful) Barry in the plane cabin when she moved to Denmark (>24 hours)
Mariela is a big fan of fitness. After long training sessions on engineering Pseudomonas putida, she rushes to the crossfit box to get the workout of the day done. Which training routine requires more effort is still a matter of debate.
Mariela enjoys cooking and is always willing to delight the other SEMsters with her Argentinian “empanadas” stuffed with beef (no wonder) and tons of olives!
Mariela loves travelling: whenever she has the chance, she packs her things up and heads to the next destination.
