Ceri joined the OU in 2015 and is the Project Officer responsible for the day to day management of the Bioaerosols Laboratory and Anaerobic Microbiology Laboratories. Ceri manages the commercial side of the laboratory and supports the academics in their bioaerosol and microbiological research. Ceri is a registered Biosafety Practitioner (Level 1), a member of the Society of Applied Microbiology and is a Chartered Waste Manager.
Ceri’s current research interests are focussed on two areas. Firstly, the implications of bioaerosols on the health of both the public and those working in the waste industry and secondly, how the viable but nonculturable fraction of bacteria can potentially be a hidden cause of infection. Ceri is currently working on a HEIF-funded project to improve the detection of the airborne pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus.
In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
