Microbial Ecology of As Contaminated Areas

    My research interests are in general microbial ecology, particularly the C, Fe, N, O, As and S cycles in groundwater and sediment communities. I am funded under the AQUATRAIN network, which is a Marie Curie research training network that was “established  to develop a better understanding of the behavior and environmental impact, including human health, of geogenic elements, in groundwater and soils in the European Union”. My part in this program is to investigate the role of microbes in the release of geogenic chemicals, particularly As in soils and groundwaters. I use a combination of microbiological and geochemical tools, to elucidate the identity of the organisms, and the environmental factors that control geogenic chemical mobility.
