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.
