Role: Professor of Geomicrobiology

Tel: 0161 275-7155




I currently lead a multidisciplinary geomicrobiology group working at the interface between biology and geology. Our research focuses on the mechanisms of microbial metal reduction, with emphasis on the environmental impact and biotechnological applications of metal-reducing bacteria. Current activities are supported by funds from NERC, BBSRC, EPSRC, the EU and industry.  I am also seconded part-time to the National Nuclear Laboratory via a Royal Society Industrial Fellowship, to support the development of our nuclear geomicrobiology programme.
