Casey Bryce

Senior Lecturer, School of Earth Sciences, University of Bristol

Casey Bryce is a geomicrobiologist and biogeochemist at the University of Bristol. She studies the role of microorganisms in the environment to better understand how they influence the Earth system. In particular she combines methods from geochemistry, microbiology and molecular ecology to understand microbial communities in peatlands. She studies how these microbial communities change during peatland disturbance, for example during thawing of permafrost, drainage or restoration. She uses this information to better constrain how changes in peatlands will impact greenhouse gas emissions, and to design strategies for monitoring and improving peatland recovery.
