Dr Bart Van dongen

Senior Lecturer in Organic Geochemistry

Dr Bart van Dongen studied Chemistry at the University of Leiden (The Netherlands). He completed his PhD at the Royal Netherland Institute for Sea research (NIOZ)/ University of Utrecht on the natural sulfurisation of carbohydrates in marine sediments and the consequences for the chemical and carbon isotopic composition of sedimentary organic matter in 2003.

He performed research as a PDRA at the Organic Geochemical Unit (OGU; Bristol University) and the Department of Applied Environmental Sciences (Stockholm University; Sweden) before joining the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences in 2007.

Environmental Geochemistry and Geomicrobiology

Our research focuses on the characterization of mineral-water-organic matter reactions in surface and subsurface environments. By combining the techniques of microbiology and molecular biology with physical, chemical and modelling approaches, we are identifying the role that microorganisms play in key environmental processes.
