Research summary

My group is partcularly interested in iron-respiring microbes. We try to understand their behaviour and how it impacts environmental processes such as wetland and freshwater biogeochemistry, drinking water quality, mineral weathering, soil formation, and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as to understand how microbial life and biogeochemical processes co-evolved over Earth's history.

Some topics we are currently studying are:

Physiology of iron-respiring microbes

Some microbes have evolved to exploit the energy available from transformation of iron between redox states, forming and dissolving minerals in the process. Our lab studies the physiology of these microorganisms and their role in the environment. We ...

I first became fascinated by the link between biological and geological processes during my BSc. in Earth Sciences at the University of Glasgow, which I pursued in to my PhD at the University of Edinburgh. Before joining the University of Bristol in 2020 I was a post doc and subsequently junior research group leader at the University of Tübingen, Germany.
