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

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.

Dr Nicholas Bryan

The main research area of my group is Environmental Chemistry, and in particular, the interaction of radionuclides with natural systems. Current projects involve the study of the interaction of these elements with natural colloids, including humic substances. Colloids have a high affinity for many pollutants, and can act as a vector for their migration in the environment. Lab experiments are used to study sorption and desorption mechanisms, and are backed up by work involving real samples from the field.

Dr Melanie Lombard

With a background in planning and urban development research and previous experience in UK social housing, my interests involve connecting the built environment to social processes through exploring the everyday activities that construct cities, often neglected by formal theories and practices of planning and urbanism.

Prof Liz Sheffield

My research concerns mosses, liverworts and ferns in both natural and artificial environments. I am very interested in the reproductive processes of non-flowering plants, sporing behaviour in particular. Several current projects relate to conservation, including work on the environmental impact of herbicides.
