Microbial Ecology

Greg O’Mullan is a microbiologist whose work focuses on aquatic ecologies in urban environments. His work is situated in the complex entanglements of architecture, urban infrastructure, industry, habitats for human and non-human species, as well as providing spaces of political engagement via citizen environmental monitoring and open access data. His transscalar work provides the framework to understand architectural design as an ecological practice - one that is simultaneously manifest from the scale of the microbe to larger environmental watersheds.

Greg O’ Mullan is an Adjunct Associate Research Scientist at the Columbia Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the Professor of Environmental Microbiology at the School of Earth & Environmental Sciences at CUNY, City University of New York.

Organized by the M.S. Advanced Architectural Design program as part its Techno-Critical Assemblies lecture series.
