Dr Simone Turchetti

I am interested in exploring the history of contemporary science and technology, especially in connection with the emergence of ‘big science’ and the development of international relations. I am pursuing an independent and interdisciplinary research programme which aims at providing a novel picture of the relations existing between the scientific community, the diplomacy and the intelligence agencies, especially during the post-WW2 period and the Cold War years.

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.

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.

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 Stephen Hincks

Stephen's research covers two broad themes. The first theme focuses on conceptualising, measuring and analysing the dynamics of spatial development. This area of research involves developing and applying different analytical frameworks and methodologies to understand complex spatial structures and processes.  This has included research on housing and labour market interaction; changing housing and neighbourhood interactions; the measurement of spatial planning outcomes; neighbourhood change; migration in Europe; and spatial housing market analysis.
