    Personal profile

    Research Interests




    Sulfur and iron biogeochemical cycling


    EP graduated with a PhD in 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 Coventry University (UK) as Assistant Professor 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 areas are the microbiology of acidophiles and 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).
