Group

Williamson Research Centre for Molecular Environmental Science

Work across the WRC aims to understand and predict the behaviour of Earth surface systems and their response to human perturbation. Our cross-disciplinary research programmes have been developed in areas including geological disposal, remediation, environment & health, climate change and nanotechnology.

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.
