Dr. Hubert studies geomicrobiology and microbial diversity in marine sediments, particularly in the Arctic. He is also interested in the role of microbiology in the petroleum industry, such as microbial degradation of crude oil spills. Current projects include controlling oil reservoir souring through nitrate injection, as well as the study of thermophilic bacteria in the cold ocean as bio-tracers of fluid seepage from the hot deep biosphere.
