On the 28th of February, Paola submitted her Ph.D. thesis, which includes 6 manuscripts (3 already submitted). Very curious to hear what the committee thinks about Paola’s work. Wishing her best of luck, it’s been fantastic working together. Hope we will continue working together for a bit longer after her defense.

Jo, now an Assistant Prof. at Aarhus University visited us on the 10th of January. Jo presented her recent work on corrosion by acetogenic bacteria. It was great to see Jo again and discuss possible future collaborations.
Ever wondered who’s corroding those chemical weapons oozing mustard gas in the Baltic sea, wonder no more: “Baltic #Methanosarcina and #Clostridium compete for electrons from metallic iron”.
