Dr Robert Huddy
Dr Rob Huddy is an NRF Career Advancement Research Fellow and Research Officer within the Centre for Bioprocess Engineering Research (CeBER). His primary research focus is on the use of molecular techniques, including metagenomics, to better our understanding of complex mixed microbial communities associated with bioprocess systems, including the bioremediation of mine waste water effluents, anaerobic digestion and bioleaching. This has built upon the research conducted during his tenure as a post-doctoral researcher within CeBER. He completed his undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of Cape Town before pursuing a post-doctoral fellowship in the Institute for Microbial Biotechnology and Metagenomics (IMBM) at the University of the Western Cape (UWC). Rob has a strong microbiology and molecular biology background and an active interest in teaching and research towards the integration of molecular biology and bioprocess engineering.
