Prof Mitchell is the leading expert on small scale microbial processes with publications in Nature, Science and PNAS. He has given invited talks at the Masschusetts Institute of Technology, at Cambridge University and at the Gordon Research Conference on marine microbiology. He has collaborated with the University of Tokyo, MIT and the University of Chicago. His research group consists of 20+ people, including post doctoral fellows and scientific staff from all over the world. Research in his group focuses on the influences of nanometer to micrometer scale processes on microbial ecosystems. Research outcomes have been used in nanotechnology, including microfluidics and nanofabrication. As part of this research they investigate environmental viruses (>10^8/ml) and metagenomics.
