I am a molecular microbiologist. I have worked across a broad range of fields investigating the relationships between biogeochemical cycling and microbial processes; covering microbial ecology in intertidal sand-flats to molecular ecology of ammonia and nitrite oxidising bacteria in soils and sediments and regulation of methane fluxes in peat soils by methanogen and methanotroph activity.
