Dr Vladimir Jankovic

The principal objectives of my past and current research have been about the scope, scale and social conditions of the scientific and social engagement with weather and climate. I am particularly interested in the socio-cultural forces behind the notion of atmospheric environment as a normative framing of climate as a resource and agency, with focus on climate as a space of mundane social identity and economic action. The shift from theorized towards lived climates has led me toward examining the problem of scale in the scientific and public understanding of the weather.

Prof Peter Stansby

Peter Stansby has been Professor of Hydrodynamics at Manchester University since 1990. 

He obtained his BA in Engineering and his PhD in Aerodynamics at Cambridge University. He then worked for Atkins Research and Development near London on wind and offshore engineering for two years. On moving to Manchester University in 1980, his early research interests were in wave and current loading on offshore structures, specializing in vortex-induced vibrations. Since around 1990 he has worked on coastal hydrodynamics, mainly in relation to shallow-water flows and surf zone waves.

Dr Peter Quayle

Varied lines of research have been investigated whilst at Manchester including the use of transition metal carbene complexes and organostannanes in synthesis, the synthesis of hydrophilic polymers, and the development of "clean oxidation" processes using hydrogen peroxide. Recent interests include the development of more efficient catalysts for atom transfer reactions and their use in natural product synthesis.
