Dr Amarachukwu Anyogu
Lecturer in Microbiology
Amara Anyogu completed her BSc and PhD in Microbiology at London Metropolitan University. After her PhD, her postdoctoral research focused on the development and application of mathematical models to predict bacterial survival and growth in food.
Outside of work, Amara is involved with science communication and regularly takes up opportunities to speak at festivals and careers fairs as well as undertake public engagement work with different charities and professional societies
I teach across all levels of the Biochemistry, Pharmacology and Applied Biosciences UG course. I am the Course Leader for the Foundation Year for the BSc (Hons) Biochemistry; BSc (Hons) Biological Sciences; BSc Biomedical Sciences; BSc (Hons) Pharmacology and Physiology programmes.
My current research interests are focused on the exploitation of beneficial microbes for the production of food and novel antimicrobial compounds; antibiotic resistance in the food chain and modelling bacterial survival and growth.
