Microbial ECOLOGY LAB
Welcome to Vincent O'Flaherty's lab group page! We are interested in all things microbial, but our focuses include anaerobic digestion and understanding the microbial processes underpinning it in order to make AD more efficient for a range of wastes and under a variety of conditions including at low temperature. We are also interested in other microbial processes associated with sustainability, including the production of PHAs, reducing methane emissions from both slurry and ruminant fermentation and the sequestration of polyphosphates.
Term time has started!
After a busy summer of conferences, paper writing and a whole bunch of lovely interns we are now back to term time! We welcome four new undergrads, and congratulate our two PhD students who recently flew through their vivas with flying colours - Dr Conall Holohan, Dr Shaun Connolly and Dr Yu Chen Liu!
