Dr Sarah Lindley

I am a quantitative geographer specialising in the use of geospatial analysis to understand the outcomes of human-environment interactions. My main research interests are associated with urban air pollution and climate adaptation. Much of my research activity is motivated by the need to develop sustainable responses to current and future environmental challenges. I therefore often work in multi-disciplinary teams and in collaboration with stakeholders.

Prof Simon Guy

- Member of the University's Sustainability Steering Group

My research aims to critically understanding the co-evolution of design and development strategies and socio-economic processes shaping cities. This approach has involved the development and application of an innovative sociotechnical approach to researching architecture, urban development, technological innovation and urban change analysis and integration of previously disconnected research fields - architecture and urban planning, the property sector and utilities industry.

Dr Angela Connelly

After training as a political scientist, Angela Connelly completed her PhD within the Manchester Architecture Research Centre, which was funded under the AHRC/ESRC 'Religion and Society' Programme. In collaboration with the Methodist Church Property Office and supervised by Professor Michael Hebbert and Dr. Andrew Crompton considered the architectural and social history of Methodism's Central Halls as a hybrid building type of public and sacred space.
