Dr Neil Burton

Computational chemistry is now widely applicable in a variety of biological, materials and chemical research areas. Computer simulation of the dynamics and electronic structures of chemical reactions and complex molecular systems helps us to understand these processes and provide a valuable complement to experiment.

Dr Josephine Mylan

Jo's research interests lie in understanding how society can transition to more environmentally sustainable ways of consuming resources. This will require changes in the way we provision goods, including the technologies, economic and social arrangements, and cultural conventions which shape processes of production, distribution and consumption.

Dr Keith White

I am interested in understanding and managing the water quality and ecology of urban watercourses, including preventing the formation of potentially harmful ‘blooms’ of blue-green algae. Work with an industrial partner is examining the relationship between past and present water quality and the changes in the ecology of Salford Quays – a restored and redeveloped dock system near Media City, Greater Manchester.

Prof Kevin Ward

My research is motivated by a desire to explain and remove urban cultural, economic and social injustices, and centres around the following concerns:

- Urban policy and politics

- Neo-liberal urbanism

- Policy mobilties and mutations

- Comparative urbanism

- Financial models and infrastructure

- Multi-site methodologies

- Geographies of work and employment
