Current research funding from BBSRC and EU to enhance our understanding of stress responses
Microbial physiology using the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae in a biotechnologically relevant setting to understand viability and vitality, stress response and heterogeneity. Methods include flow cytometry and radio-frequency impedance spectroscopy. Part of this work is undertaken collaboratively with AU spin-out company Aber Instruments Ltd.
