Prof Jonathan Lloyd

Professor of Geomicrobiology

I currently lead a multidisciplinary geomicrobiology group working at the interface between biology and geology. Our research focuses on the mechanisms of microbial metal reduction, with emphasis on the environmental impact and biotechnological applications of metal-reducing bacteria. Current activities are supported by funds from NERC, BBSRC, EPSRC, the EU and industry.

Group

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.
