I am a PhD candidate in Environmental Microbiology at Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ in Leipzig, Germany. My advisor is Dr. Carsten Vogt. My PhD research deals with the biogeochemical effects of temperature change on microbial communities and groundwater contaminations. I expect to graduate early 2023 and am currently looking for post-doctoral opportunities.

Before joining UFZ in 2018, I obtained in 2017 a European Master’s in Chemical Innovation and Regulation jointly awarded by the University of Bologna, Italy, and Heriot-Watt University, United Kingdom. In particular, for my Master’s thesis, I investigated hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria associated with marine phytoplankton using DNA-based Stable Isotope Probing.

And before my graduate studies, I obtained in 2012 a Bachelor of Science from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry and worked between 2012 and 2015 as a research engineer within the Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences of A*STAR, Singapore.

About my name

I am a Singaporean Malay. Malay names do not contain a family name or surname, but include the father’s name, similarly to Icelandic names. In my name, “Bin Hudari” simply means that my father’s name is Hudari. And as Mohammad (often abbreviated as Md) is a very common first name among Malays, I am just using my second name, Sufian. So please just call me Sufian.

Md Sufian Bin Hudari
