My research focuses on the photosynthetic purple non-sulphur bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris. In particular, I’m attempting to engineer novel metabolic pathways into this bacterium to convert industrial waste into useful chemicals in an environmentally sustainable way. I’m also working to create standardised genetic tools for transforming and expressing genes in R. palustris to aid future research in this organism.



This PhD is funded by the Waste Environmental Education Research Trust.
