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.

Dr Angela Connelly

After training as a political scientist, Angela Connelly completed her PhD within the Manchester Architecture Research Centre, which was funded under the AHRC/ESRC 'Religion and Society' Programme. In collaboration with the Methodist Church Property Office and supervised by Professor Michael Hebbert and Dr. Andrew Crompton considered the architectural and social history of Methodism's Central Halls as a hybrid building type of public and sacred space.

Dr Abbie Jones

Dr Abbie Jones is a lecturer in Nuclear Engineering Decommissioning. Dr. Jones joined the University of Manchester in 2006, as a Post Doctoral Research Associate on the EPSRC Keeping the Nuclear Options Open consortium researching nuclear graphite behaviour. Her research specialises in decommissioning and treatment of irradiated nuclear graphite waste in order to understand irradiation damage processes to nuclear graphite and to validate new treatment methods for irradiated nuclear graphite post-closure.
