B.Sc., Ph.D (UWBangor)
Bethan joined the University of Gloucestershire in June 2005 as a lecturer in Microbial Ecology. Bethan's early research interest was in extremophiles. She completed her Ph.D. at Bangor, in collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, on oil-degrading psychrophiles. Bethan continued in this line of research when she worked with the Australian Antarctic Division in both Antarctica and Tasmania. Her final postdoctoral position, before she took up a role in industry, was working on an industrial application of acidophiles.
Since working at the University of Gloucestershire, Bethan's research interests have remained in Environmental Microbiology, and has worked with Anne Goodenough studying the microbiology of nest boxes. She has also worked where the worlds of Medical Microbiology and Environmental Microbiology collide, and has worked on projects in collaboration with Gloucestershire Primary Care Trust.
