Collaborators at UWE Bristol

DR JOEL ALLAINGUILLAUME

Joel is a Senior Lecturer in Molecular Genetics in the Centre for Research in Biosciences at UWE, Bristol. To date, the majority of his research work has centered on the application of molecular and genomics approaches to address problems of agronomic, ecological and conservational importance. His area of expertise includes: Ecological Risk Assessment of GM crops; Crop improvement and Environmental monitoring and DNA barcoding.

DR SAM BONNETT

Sam is a Senior lecturer in Environmental Science in the Department of Biomedical, Biological and Analytical Sciences in the Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences. With 8 years of postdoctoral experience as a soil ecologist, he has a strong interest in biogeochemical mechanisms that regulate ecological systems and the potential of microbes for bioremdiation of wastes and lignocellusoic biomass.

DR PETE MAXFIELD

Pete has a research background in biogeochemistry and utilising organic geochemical techniques to characterise and quantify C cycling, metabolic pathways and trace gas exchange. ​His main research focus has been the mechanistic study of methane cycling in terrestrial settings through the combination of stable isotope probing (SIP) and molecular characterisation techniques to delineate discrete processes in complex systems.

PROFESSOR NEIL WILLEY

Neil predominantly focuses his research on plants and pollutants, in particular the uptake and effects of environmentally relevant radionuclides and toxic metals. He has over 20 years’ experience teaching and conducting research in environmental science. Due to his broad area of interest in plant physiology and expertise he is an exceptionally valuable advisor to the research group.
