Alan Walker is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Aberdeen, UK, studying the intestinal microbiota and its interactions with the host’s diet. In this interview, Alan discusses his research interests, earlier studies of the ways contaminants can affect microbiome analyses, the excitement of experiments going well, and why science doesn’t need to be combative.
AWW would like to thank his collaborating co-authors on the 2014 contamination paper for all of their excellent work.
AWW is supported by core funding from the Scottish Government Rural & Environment Science & Analytical Services (RESAS).
