Lisa is a postdoctoral microbiologist in Catchment Management, having completed a PhD in environmental microbiology nine years ago at the University of Nottingham. Through research positions in the Soil Science group within the School of Agriculture and Forest Sciences at the University of Wales (Bangor) and the Centre for Water Science at Cranfield University prior to taking up her post at the Institute at the end of 2006, she has worked across a range of fields from microbial ecology to waste-water reuse and treatment processes and pathogen prevalence and transport in the environment.

Current research interests 

Key interests include pathogen transport and survival (in particular E. coli O157: H7) in environmental matrices including water, soil and organic wastes. Recent work has focused on identifying factors affecting E. coli adsorption to clay colloids and stream biofilms; determining what drives E. coli transport and longevity within streams and identification of pathogens which could contaminate organic wastes applied to land. Lisa has also investigated the use of coprostanol as an indicator for source tracking of faecal pollution. She is also currently involved in work investigating the longevity of Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis on farmland. In addition, she has an active interest in sustainable rural drainage and wastewater reuse.
