Ro Allen

Ro is a Post Doctoral Research Assistant working within the Cunliffe group on the MYCO-CARB project. He is a marine microbial ecologist interested in the factors governing the abundance and distribution of microbes through space and time, and the relationship between microbial community structure and function.
After completing a MRes in Marine Biology at Plymouth University in association with the Marine Biological Association, he pursued a PhD in the Department of Botany at the University of Otago. His thesis, entitled marine microbial community dynamics and responses to ocean acidification, focussed on the spatial dynamics of marine microbial communities in the context of fundamental ecological processes, and the responses of marine microbial communities to near-future ocean acidification.
