Dr Deepak Kumaresan
Research in our lab uses complimentary ecogenomics tools to elucidate eco-physiological mechanisms in microbial systems that underpin ecosystem services. Specifically we focus on;
- Eco-physiology of aerobic methylotrophs: bacteria that utilise one-carbon (C1) compounds (i.e. methane, methylated amines)
- Microbial "functional" diversity and their impact on ecosystem functions (e.g. climate active trace gas cycling, soil and plant health and coupled biogeochemical cycles)
- Biotechnological potential of aerobic methane-oxidising bacteria (MOB)
Open to Ph.D. applications from those having at least a 2.1 degree (or equivalent) in a biological or biochemistry or microbiology or environmental science subjects. Also open to support fellowship applications.
