I am Bent Smets, a PhD student in the Geobiology research group. My work is focused on characterizing the electrical wires cable bacteria use to transport electrons over great distances. I use a variety of spectroscopy techniques to unravel the molecular structure of a nickel cofactor found in the core of these remarkable microbial wires. Want to find out more?
