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 Paul Kelemen

Research interests: The history of the British labour movement’s approach to the colonies  and how this impacted on metropolitan thinking and policies. I have carried out research on the British Labour party’s attitude towards the Middle East and in particular to the Palestinian conflict, to decolonization in Africa and, more recently,  to India, in the period leading up to its independence.

Dr Richie Nimmo

My research is interdisciplinary in nature and pursues questions emerging from the ambiguous status of nonhumans in modern knowledge-practices. In social thought nonhumans are often a kind of absent presence, rendered marginal as a 'context' of human agency, whilst simultaneously performing the invisible work of shaping foundational notions of the human. The marginalisation of nonhuman animals in particular points towards a fundamental ontological asymmetry involved in social scientific conceptions of 'the social'.

Prof Richard Pattrick

Research interests: 

Pure and applied mineralogy, geochemistry and metallogenesis. This work has ranged from experimental investigations to field studies. The mineralogical investigations have focussed on the chalcogenides (esp. sulfides) and magnetic oxides, using experimental synthesis combined with spectroscopic analysis, including synchrotron XAS and diffractiontechniques.
