Personal profile

Academic Background

I am an Environmental Microbiologist with interests in Molecular Biology and 'omics research. My previous research focussed on using culture-dependent and independent techniques to study the role that bacteria play in the cycling of key sulfur compounds in saltmarsh environments, including dimethyl sulfide - an important volatile compound that is also the smell people associate with the sea. 

I am now a Lecturer in Microbiology, with particular emphasis on Environmental Microbiology, and teach on several modules including 'Concepts in Microbiology' and 'Skills for Biologists'. I also help run the practical sessions for 'Microbiology' and 'Molecular Biology', as well as being co-module organiser for 'Microbiology', and module organiser for level 5 'Advances in Microbiology'.
