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.

Dr Prasenjit Banerjee

My research is motivated by interdependencies between human behaviour and mechanisms/institutions designed for environmental protection. I do game theoretic modelling and experimental work.My work includes conservation and management of natural resources, behavioural impact on environmental policies, designing mechanism/institutionfor environmental protection, and environmental regulation. I also look at philosophical and behavioural underpinnings of valuation of environmental goods.
