I'm Daan Speth, (geo)microbiologist and bioinformatician, currently working in the Department of Biogeochemistry at the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen. Before moving to Bremen, I have worked as a postdoc in the Orphan Lab at Caltech and obtained my PhD at the Department of Microbiology at the Radboud University Nijmegen.

On this site I highlight some of my work in the lab, in the field, and on our lab server. My google scholar profile has a more complete, but somewhat dryer, overview of my work. This page will also feature periodic updates on topics that interest me and has a page filled with links that I enjoy or find useful, in science and beyond. And finally, because I really wish science was more welcoming to people from all backgrounds than it is today, there's a page featuring some thoughts on that, as well as links to helpful resources to go in the right direction.
