Maria Angelica "Angel" Rea is a Research Associate in the College of Science and Engineering at Flinders University. Her current research focuses on the environmental radiological impact assessment of natural radiaoactive material on flora and fauna in Australian arid zones. A database of concentration ratios and environmental media concentration limits will be determined to assess the impact to the surrounding flora and fauna. She is also doing research work on the transformation of gold particles and biogeochemical processes including mineralisation and microbial community composition. She can perform bioinformatics analysis of 16S rRNA data. She is also competent in the use and application of scanning electron microscopy and laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry and single particle ICP-MS on various biological, ecotoxicological and radiological applications.
