Prof Clive Agnew

I am an applied climatologist and hydro-meteorologist working on problems of environmental degradation and environmental status assessment. I have worked extensively in both the drylands and the wetlands of Africa, Europe and the Middle East, developing strategies for the improved management of water shortages at local and regionallevels. I am currently engaged in studies of wetland hydrology in the UK with an emphasis up boundary layer fluxes and assessing the spatial variability of climate change predictions.

Dr Conor Walsh

Upon completion of his BSc in Environmental Science from the University of Limerick, Conor undertook an MSc in Sustainable Development. His doctoral studies focused on methodological adaptation of a land based sustainability indicator, with specific relevance to Ireland. This included development of a method to incorporate methane into ecological footprinting, as well a tool for comparing the emissions of commuting (including cycling). The later of which was referenced in the Irish Times.

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.

Mr David Williamson

Research interests: How 'differences' across organisation types (e.g. firms, sectors, states) influence regulatory effectiveness and efficiency. This is part of an ongoing project exploring why regulation may need to be, and whether it can be, individualised.

Worked in manufacturing for 13 years, mainly as a production manager; led several sustainability initiatives at Staffordshire University

Dr Deborah Talmi

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

I have completed an M.A. in cognitive psychology at Tel Aviv University, Israel, where I focused on memory mechanisms and specifically the distinction between short- and long-term memory. My Ph.D. work with Morris Moscovitch at the University of Toronto focused on emotional memory, specifically on cognitive mediators for enhanced memory for emotional material.

Dr Amanda Bamford

Amanda completed a BSc (Hons.) Applied Biology at Bath University and then went to University of Lancaster for her PhD studies. Her PhD at the University of Lancaster, in association with Letcombe Laboratory, Oxford, was funded by N.E.R.C. and titled: Fluxes of carbon and nitrogen in barley exposed to atmospheric nitrogen dioxide.

Dr Alison Browne

Alison has a number of active and interdisciplinary research projects on everyday practice and sustainable consumption; dirt, cleanliness and freshness; and the governance of water resources, drought, and climate change adaptation. In previous research projects she explored the governance of large scale resource development (e.g., agriculture, NRM, water infrastructure, mining) using 'environmentality', 'risk' and 'mega-project paradox' frameworks.
