Since joining NETL’s Engineered Natural Systems Division in July of 2014, Dr. Djuna Gulliver has been working to analyze the microbial ecology of various energy environments and energy-impacted environments, such as carbon storage reservoirs, acid mine drainage sites, and unconventional resource reservoirs.

“It’s amazing to see how microbial communities are affected by small perturbations in the environment and how these affected microbial communities change that environment in return,” she said speaking of her work. Gulliver spends her free time writing science articles for the ASCE-PGH website as well as sciencenonfiction.org. She also enjoys doing circus arts such as aerial silks and lyra—aerial acrobatics performed with a suspended steel hoop.
