On graduation with BSc in Microbiology from the National University of Ireland, Galway I came to UCD where I completed a PhD on high maltose producing amylases. After 4 years working as an industry-funded postdoc, I joined the staff of the Department of Industrial Microbiology in UCD in 1990 and was Head of Department from 2002-2005. Although I have retained an interest in microbial enzymes, the main focus of my research is now microbial degradation of xenobiotics and bioremediation, with particular interest in linking specific microbial populations to biodegradation in natural ecosystems.
