Lakshmi Manjoosha Adapa

DPhil Researcher

Department of Engineering Science

Lakshmi’s research focuses on metal adsorption and distribution in bacterial biofilms in order to investigate the adsorption behaviour of metals singly and in combination, and to ascertain whether metals are adsorbed onto bacterial surfaces or are taken into the cytoplasm. This will inform further studies into the recovery of metals from biofilms and on bioprocess optimisation. Supervisor: Professor Ian Thompson
