Dr Jason Dortch

I have focused my research on the Quaternary geology, geomorphology, and tectonics of mountain belts at high latitude and high altitude. I am particularly concerned with quantifying the timing and rates of landscape evolution in these regions to understand the interplay between internal (tectonic) and external (surface) processes.

Prof Daniel Rigby

I have broad research interests but mainly focus on the relationships between economy, agriculture and the environment. 
A great deal of my recent work has involved choice and choice experiments. This has led to growing interest in psychology, economics and choice and also choice and plagiarism within Higher Education.
