Personal profile


I am a Lecturer in Environmental Microbiolog School of Biological Sciences at the University of Portsmouth. My research interests fall into the environmental microbiology of extreme environments and geomicrobiology. I am interested in bioremediation and in developing new bioleaching approaches of mine tailings to minimise the impact of mining in the environment. I am also interested in studying the responses of microbial communities to climate change in nano- and macroscale, and how we can use microorganisms in order to minimize the impact of climate change in the formation of acid mine drainage and in the ocean.
