Dr. Lucy Eland

Research Associate

I am an RA at the School of Computing Science, Newcastle University, UK. I am working on the Frontiers of Engineering Biology Project, funded by EPSRC and am based in both the wet labs at the Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology, Newcastle University and the School  of Computing Science.

I studied for an undergraduate degree in Zoology at Durham University and then moved to the School of Civil Engineering and Geoscience, Newcastle University to do a Masters in Environmental Engineering. I also did my PhD in Environmental Engineering, looking at the application of molecular biology techniques to photosynthetic organisms in Waste Stabilization Pond systems (low cost wastewater treatment).
