Rikke L Meyer

Rikke Meyer is associate professor of microbiology at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center at Aarhus University, Denmark. Her research combines microbiology and nanoscience in the pursuit of understanding how bacteria attach to surfaces and form biofilm, and how these can be prevented or treated through novel formulations of antimicrobial compounds or antifouling surfaces.
