Ian Maddox is a fermentation technologist. After working in the brewing and pharmaceutical industries in UK, Ian joined Massey University as an industrial microbiologist/fermentation technologist. His research activities during the last 25 years have focussed on the production of butanol by fermentation using Clostridia (in excess of 50 publications), and also on some aerobic fermentations. Most of his published research has concentrated on fermentation technology, but he has also published on the physiology of some important microorganisms, including the butanol-producing clostridia.
