Mikel Anza is currently doing his PhD thesis on the impact of different sources of environmental stress on soil health through the assessment of microbial properties with potential as bioindicators of soil functioning, under the supervision of Dr. Carlos Garbisu (Department of Ecology and Natural Resources, NEIKER-Tecnalia).
He has: (i) a Bachelor of Science in Biology (University of the Basque Country, 1998) and (ii) an Advanced Diploma in Environmental Agrobiology (University of the Basque Country, 2001).
At the moment, his main research area is the assessment of soil health and quality through the utilization of soil microbial properties. He has experience in protected hydroponic cultures (plant physiology, mineral nutrition, energy saving) as well as in the determination of physico-chemical parameters related to fruit quality and crop development.
