Description

Professor Jillian Banfield, Departments of Earth and Planetary Science, and Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, UC Berkeley

Jillian Banfield, an alumnus of ANU, is a Professor in the Departments of Earth and Planetary Science and Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at UC Berkeley and also holds an appointment in the geochemistry group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Her group works on metagenomic (with an emphasis on genome recovery) and community proteomic analysis of natural microbial communities in systems such as acid mine drainage, sediments, Australian salt lakes and the premature human infant gut. Jill also works on the microbial dissolution and precipitation of minerals, the structure, properties, and reactivity of nanoparticles (many of which are formed by microorganisms) , and microbial evolution.
