Dr Neil Burton

Computational chemistry is now widely applicable in a variety of biological, materials and chemical research areas. Computer simulation of the dynamics and electronic structures of chemical reactions and complex molecular systems helps us to understand these processes and provide a valuable complement to experiment.

Dr Mohammad Rahman

I am primarily interested in plant physiology in terms of plants’ responses and interactions with the environment. I am especially keen to work on gas-exchange (photosynthesis, respiration and transpiration) and also resource-use efficiency across environmental gradients.

While doing my PhD I have investigated the effect of urban trees on adapting our cities to the urban heat island by measuring their growth and transpiration across environmental gradients. I have also attempted to carry out comparative ecophysiological studies on simulated changed climatic scenarios.

Prof Jonathan Lloyd

I currently lead a multidisciplinary geomicrobiology group working at the interface between biology and geology. Our research focuses on the mechanisms of microbial metal reduction, with emphasis on the environmental impact and biotechnological applications of metal-reducing bacteria. Current activities are supported by funds from NERC, BBSRC, EPSRC, the EU and industry.

Dr John Moriarty

The current focus of our group is the application of probability theory at the interface between mathematical finance and power systems engineering. From 2013 to 2017 I have an EPSRC Early Career Research Fellowship titled Optimal prediction in local electricity markets focusing on the pricing and hedging of risk in electricity demand, for better balancing of future power systems.
