Nixon, Sophie

Professor Sophie Nixon is a BBSRC David Phillips and Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw Research Fellow in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Manchester, where she leads the Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology Group. Based in the flagship Manchester Institute of Biotechnology, Sophie’s group is dedicated to understanding how environmental microbiomes can be harnessed to solve global environmental problems, especially with respect to waste CO2 emissions. Building on Sophie’s track record of microbiology in the engineered subsurface, a major focus is understanding the potential impacts that microorganisms in the deep biosphere will have on our ability to successfully lock away CO2 in geological formations, including the risks of negative processes as well as the potential to enhance CO2 sequestration.
