Estate Teams operate within each Faculty. These teams provide liaison and communication, on behalf of the Faculties with various service providers.

The Teams monitor the responses to requests for work and projects as well as identifying operational service requirements, setting targets and monitoring the general performance of the Estates Directorate and other service providers on behalf of the Faculties.

Dr James Rothwell

I am interested in the stores, behaviour, fate and transport of pollutants in the environment. Much of my work addresses the hydrological and biogeochemical processes that affect trace metal and nutrient cycling. I work in a range of systems including peat bogs, forests and urban environments. My research involves, catchment scale process work, laboratory and field experiments, analysis of spatial and temporal monitoring data, and GIS/statistical modelling.

Prof Graham Haughton

My research uses political economy perspectives to explore various aspects of urban and regional policy.This has covered work on sustainable urban development, urban regeneration, regional development, water conflicts and labour market governance.

My current writing is focused on two key themes. First, a critical examination of neoliberal spatial governance, in particular theEnglish 'spatial planning project'. Second, I am exploring the political economy of flood risk management, with particular reference to the floods in Hull and the East Riding in 2007.

Dr Emma Gardner

I'm head of environmental sustainability, and my role is to lead on the development and implementation of the university’s environmental sustainability plan.

The university has four faculties, 20 academic schools, several major research institutes, professional support services and cultural assets. There are over 10,000 members of staff and we have one of the largest student communities in the UK - there are over 39,000 registered at the university, according to 2012 figures. So reducing the impact of the university is no mean feat!
