    Biography

    EP graduated with a PhD from the Department of Biochemistry at the Masaryk University (Czech Republic) in 2016. From 2015 to 2017, she worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Bangor University (UK), developing a new mining concept for extracting metals from deep ore deposits, using biotechnology. During another postoc (University of Waterloo, Canada; 2017-2019), EP contributed with her microbiological expertise to the development of improved strategies for managing mine-waste environments and implementation of the innovative remediation technologies at an industrial scale. 

    EP joined the Centre of Sport, Exercise and Life Sciences at Coventry University (UK) as Assistant Professor in Bioengineering and Biotechnology in 2020. She develops novel and improved biotechnologies to extract base and precious metals from primary (ores) and secondary (mine and electronic wastes) sources. Another research area is remediation of mine-impacted environments, with a special focus on geomicrobiology.

    EP is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Waterloo (ON, Canada) and a Foreign Expert at the Northeastern University (China).
