Tomasa Sbaffi

Profile

I am a PhD student within the Camborne School of Mines, working under the supervision of Dr Chris Bryan and Prof Angus Buckling. The research will focus on the ecological functions given by the metabolic abilities of microbes from mine impacted environments and the potential use of these skills in bio-hydrometallurgy. This will be achieved through analysis of their performance in complex controlled culturing systems, such as bioreactors.
