Environment and Ecology

The Faculty of Life Science's Environment and Ecology research theme (Directed by Prof Richard Preziosi) focuses on applied research that addresses 21st century environmental challenges.

The food we eat, the water we drink, and the fuel that powers our industries are all dwindling resources that we harvest from the world around us. As our populations expand and natural areas are converted to farmland and cities, we lose the services that nature provided for free.

Dr Simon Brocklehurst

My research interests in tectonic geomorphology are based around landscape response to climate change and tectonic processes. This includes:

- the impact of glacial erosion on previously fluvially-sculpted mountain ranges

- the response of fluvial and glacial landscapes to active tectonics

- erosion and sediment routing in active extensional settings

Prof Stephen Bottoms

I have a wide-ranging set of research interests, covering many aspects of contemporary theatre and performance. I am also increasingly concerned with exploring inter-disciplinary research initiatives, and believe that theatre/performance studies has much to offer in such two-way dialogues.

Dr Stephen Boult

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.

The Mechanical and Energy Team is responsible for specifying, developing and overseeing the utilities infrastructure.

The team has to balance the requirements of reducing energy and utilities consumption in line with agreed (legal and best practice) targets, while providing a suitable environment for University activities to be undertaken.
