Electric interactions meet thermodynamics

Amelia: I will be in New Castle on the 31st of March, where I will be giving an invited lecture about electric interspecies interactions for Master students at the School of Civil Engineering and Geoscience at New Castle University. Afterwards, I’m really enthusiastic to finally meet and converse about the thermodynamics of direct electron transfer with brilliant scientists at New Castle University.

Talking about current and microbes while in Sydney

Amelia: On 16th of March, I will be in sunny Sydney, Australia where I’ve been invited to talk about electric interspecies interactions with methanogens and how they could change the biotechnology of the future. My talk is part of the 5th Annual JAMS Symposium. Also, I will be visiting collaborators at the University of New South Wales. Very excited about my first visit

Electrogas consortium meeting

On 26th of February, Mon and Amelia will meet the Electrogas consortium at Aarhus University. We are going to discuss progress with our work packages. The European Union, including Denmark, plan to become fossil fuel free by 2050, therefore  renewable resources like biogas and wind-turbine-generated electricity come in handy in order to produce the chemicals of the future while storing the excess electricity.

A new DIET for methanogens

Amelia: On the 27th of January I will visit the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment in Oldenburg, Germany to speak about direct interspecies electron transfer and methanogens. Very excited to meet new and old friends and/or collaborators in Oldenburg.
