Members in this field
Learn more about some of our members who are researching microbes in extreme environments or work in the area of sustainability and climate change.
Dr Arwyn Edwards is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Aberystwyth and a member of the Microbiology Society. In this interview, he tells us more about his research on microbes in extreme environments, how it has an impact and why microbiology matters.
Marta Misiak is a PhD student at the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) British Antarctic Survey and Cardiff University. She is a member of the Microbiology Society, and in this interview, she tells us more about her research in polar regions and the persisting issue of climate change.
André Antunes is an Associate Professor at the China’s first State Key Laboratory of Lunar and Planetary Sciences, recently established at Macau University of Science and Technology, and a member of the Microbiology Society. In this interview, he tells us more about his research in the field of marine and extreme environments.
As part of our ‘A Sustainable Future’ project, we spoke to Omololu Fanguwa, who is a PhD student at the University of Huddersfield and a member of the Microbiology Society. In this interview, he tells us about his career in microbiology and his recent review article published in Access Microbiology on how microbiology can accelerate the Sustainable Development Goals.
Dr Lynsay Blake is a proteomics PDRA and until recently a Daphne Jackson Research Fellow at Durham University. She is also a member of the Microbiology Society and, in this interview, tells us more about how her research is contributing to moving towards a more circular economy and achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
Dr Simon Gregory has taken a circuitous route through neuroscience, human population genetics and aquaculture to get to where he is now, leading the geomicrobiology research at the British Geological Survey. His current research interests include microbial aspects of radioactive waste disposal, carbon capture and storage, geothermal energy, biomining and methane cycling.
