Research (6)

Dr. Sabine Matallana-Surget is a Lecturer of Environmental and Molecular Microbiology. Her research focuses on the molecular responses of marine microorganisms to environmental stresses, using cutting edge technology (e.g. proteomics). Her expertise centres on microbial ecology, photobiology, and ecotoxicology with strengths in molecular biology. She focuses on the physiological and molecular responses of microbial communities to anthropogenic perturbations. She developed cutting edge science and technology especially in the area of Proteomics. Since her appointment as a Lecturer in 2015, she has been awarded several international and national grants from NERC, EPSRC, the Royal Society, Newton scheme, and Carnegie UK Trust. She has developed an international and multidisciplinary research group on environmental proteomics and microbial ecology and currently supervises four PhD students.
