My research is focused on one of the greatest challenges facing world education systems, that of finding ways of including all children. Through the work of the Enabling Education Network (EENET), which I helped to create in 1997, the University of Manchester has become the worlds hub for communicating evidence from research and development projects in inclusive education in developing countries.

My main research interest is the development of an ecological perspective on teaching and learning, and with a particular focus on the analytical affordances of the construct of 'intentionality'. My ecological thinking draws on James Gibson, as well as later writers from the 'Connecticut school' of ecological psychology.

The Manchester Leadership Programme (MLP) is unique to the University of Manchester and provides students with the opportunity to enhance their university experience, while giving something back to the wider community.

MLP students learn about the challenges facing society in the 21st century, and the leadership approaches needed to address them, both in theory and in real-world practice. The programme also helps students to develop the skills and experiences that graduate employers seek.

University College for Interdisciplinary Learning

The University College for Interdisciplinary Learning presents an opportunity for students at The University of Manchester to broaden their educational horizons. It will offer course units that showcase the breadth and depth of research and knowledge found at the University and encourage students to go beyond the boundaries of their degree programme.

Dr Simone Turchetti

I am interested in exploring the history of contemporary science and technology, especially in connection with the emergence of ‘big science’ and the development of international relations. I am pursuing an independent and interdisciplinary research programme which aims at providing a novel picture of the relations existing between the scientific community, the diplomacy and the intelligence agencies, especially during the post-WW2 period and the Cold War years.

Hydrology and hydrochemistry, is studied at all scales from laboratory simulation where conditions are wholly controlled to field scale where, though uncontrolled, conditions are monitored.  This work has been developed through the founding of a University spin out company Intelisys Ltd, which develops commercial monitoring equipment.

Dr Stephen Hincks

Stephen's research covers two broad themes. The first theme focuses on conceptualising, measuring and analysing the dynamics of spatial development. This area of research involves developing and applying different analytical frameworks and methodologies to understand complex spatial structures and processes.  This has included research on housing and labour market interaction; changing housing and neighbourhood interactions; the measurement of spatial planning outcomes; neighbourhood change; migration in Europe; and spatial housing market analysis.
