Meet Ally Hughes, PhD Student


At FEMS2019 (7-11 July 2019) in Glasgow, Scotland, we interviewed a range of scientists to find our more about their research and teaching, their inspiration, and microbiology!

Here we talk to Ally Hughes, a 3rd year PhD Student at the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), part of the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow (Scotland). We discuss her experience in academia and industry, her work on bioreactors using photosynthetic algae, her microbiological hero, her favourite microbes, how they make smarties blue and much more…
