Projects per year
I joined the University of Strathclyde in April 2014 as a Senior Lecturer. I am a microbiologist and radiochemist with extensive experience of research into microbial interactions with radionuclides and metals, working at the interface between microbiology and analytical & radio-chemistry.
My research is mainly focused on understanding how microorganisms can affect the chemistry and transport of radionuclides in the environment. These microbial effects can be exploited to develop novel methods for limiting the migration of radionuclide contaminants in the environment and to treat radioactive wastes.
Other recent research projects have investigated the interactions of silver nanoparticles with bacterial biofilms, remediation of petroleum contaminants and microbial transformations of metals.
