Microbial Physics and Ecology Group
Department of Physics and Astronomy.
Imagine: Imaging Life Initiative
The University of Sheffield
Our group brings together ideas and tools from a wide variety of disciplines to explore fundamental questions in microbiology.
Our work incorporates microfluidic experiments, molecular biology, automated image analysis, evolutionary game theory, and fluid dynamics.
The small-scale phenomena we study affect a broad range of important processes including human infection, harmful algal blooms, biogeochemical cycling, and the bioremediation of pollutants.
