Dr Tim Stallard

Dr Stallard joined the University of Manchester in October 2006 after two years of interdisciplinary research concerning the performance and economics of marine energy converters. This followed completion of a DPhil in the Ocean Engineering Dynamics group at Oxford University where he developed an interest in both vortex- and wave-induced forces. His present research concerns offshore renewables including tidal stream, wave energy and offshore wind.

Dr Sarah Mander

Sarah started her career as a Chemical Engineer, initially working as a project engineer in the chemical and pharmaceutical's industry. Upon leaving industry, she spent six years working in a variety of roles for an urban design and build company. For these six years her job included facilitating community engagement in regeneration projects, welding, workshop management and promoting sustainability within urban neighbourhoods. In 1999 she joined Manchester School of Management researching the penetration of wind energy in the North West for her PhD.

Dr Patrick Gallois

There are many situations in a plant’s life when self-destruction of some cells is required. This may happen to create empty spaces inside tissues or when energy needs recycling for new growth or when a scorched earth policy is required to stop the progression of a pathogen. These situations occur during e.g. the germination of seeds, the differentiation of vascular elements, the reproduction and the senescence of plants and under pathogen attack. In all cases, a precise and spatially confined activation of cell death is required and can only been achieved by a complex genetic control.
