Dr James Allan

One of the University's growing number of Sustainability Enthusiasts. Find out more about the initiative here.

The core theme of my research is the measurement of atmospheric aerosols. Particulate matter is produced from both natural and anthropogenic sources and is known to have significant effects on both health and climate. However, the processes governing their lifecycle and effects are poorly understood, which hampers our predictive capability of them and their impacts.

Prof Hugh Coe

The main focus of Hugh's research is on improving the knowledge of the physics and chemistry of atmospheric aerosols. Aerosol particles play key roles in climate change, through reflecting and absorbing solar and infra-red radiation and by acting as sites for the formation of cloud droplets; in air pollution, being linked closely with impacts on human health; and on the transport of pollutants and nutrients on regional or even global scales.

Dr David Topping

My research interests focus on building computational models of atmospheric aerosol particles for use in interpretation of measured properties and as sub models for incorporation into climate change models. This broad classification masks a hierarchy of models and techniques with greatly varying complexity and range of applicability.  In addition, the research area is highly multi-disciplinary, covering: Physics, Chemistry, Numerical methods and Computational Science.
