Chemoautotrophy is the process by which micro-organisms fix CO2 by obtaining energy from the oxidation of reduced compounds such as sulphide and ammonium. Diana Vasquez Cardenas studies the bacterial chemoautotrophy of a number of coastal areas. She does this by identifying key chemoautotrophic bacteria, determining possible environmental factors that regulate chemoautotrophic activity and evaluating the importance of chemoautotrophy in the carbon cycle of coastal sediments.
