    Microbial Ecologist

    Professor Mitchell has led the Laboratory of Soil Biology at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland since 2009. His research focuses primarily on soil biodiversity and ecology with a strong focus on a group of free-living protozoa, the testate amoebae. Mitchell is interested in understanding the diversity and functional roles of poorly known soil organisms, the response of soil communities to natural gradients, present and past ecosystem dynamics and the effects of human activities on ecosystems.
