Mar is working on the Spanish-funded project polyDEmar. As well as characterising plastic biodegradation, she is looking into marine interactions between phototrophs and heterotrophs, maintaining the lab's culture collections amongst many other tasks!
Theo Obrador Viel
Theo is working on the mechanistics of microbial plastic biodegradation, investigating new isolates and new enzymes obtained from different environments. Funded with an FPU scholarship (Spanish funding).
Dr Vinko Zadjelovic-Varas
Vinko is working as the PDRA on the PlasticVectorsproject funded by NERC, investigating the microbiomes of plastics.
Craig is investigating the ecotoxicological impacts of nanomaterials upon marine microbes. Funded by NERC (CENTA student).
