Mike McCormick Ph.D., University of Michigan
Associate Professor of Biology
Mike McCormick is a member of the Biology Department with a shared teaching commitment in the Geosciences Department. His research interests lie broadly in geomicrobiology and environmental chemistry. McCormick's current research focuses on electron transfer processes between metal respiring bacteria and metal oxides, the transformation of environmental contaminants by biogenic minerals, the microbial diversity of naturally occurring redox interfaces and the development of microbial fuel cells as a novel energy source. He joined Hamilton having completed a Ph.D. and post-doctoral fellowship in environmental engineering at the University of Michigan. McCormick has published in the journals Environmental Science and Technology
and Water Research.
McCormick’s research has been supported by grants from the ACS Petroleum Research Fund, the Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Science Foundation (NSF). In 2007 McCormick was awarded a research grant by DOE to examine the role of biogenic Fe(II) minerals in treating uranium contamination and by NSF to characterize the microbial diversity of a novel cold seep community recently discovered off the Antarctic Peninsula.
