Biography

Dr. George Mangse is a Lecturer and Postgraduate Coordinator in the Departments of Biology, Microbiology & Biotechnology, Faculty of Natural & Applied Sciences, Nile University of Nigeria. Dr. Mangse has done research in the fields of in situ sorbent amendment for the remediation of petroleum hydrocarbon contaminated soils. George’s main research interests include the use of molecular biology and next generation sequencing (NGS) techniques to investigate bacterial community structure changes of water and soil samples from the environment following exposure to contamination with organic pollutants. He has also acquired skills in the use of analytical chemistry techniques such as Liquid Chromatography tandem Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) as well as Gas Chromatography – Mass Spectrometry to analyze micro-pollutants in water samples from the environment.

Dr. Mangse holds an M.Sc. in Industrial Biotechnology and a PhD in Environmental Biotechnology from Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom.
