Dr Carys Jones

I gained a BSc (Honours) in Microbiology from University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and then an MSc in Pollution and Environmental Control, at the University of Manchester. My PhD was in Biological Sciences at University of Manchester and focused on upland land use and its affect on water quality in the catchment of Stocks Reservoir in the Forest of Bowland. 

Currently Programme Director MA EIA and Management, Programme Director BA Environmental Management, Co-ordinator (Planning) of PGR Students

Dr Caroline Bowsher

Plants unlike animals have the ability to produce their own food via Photosynthesis. This process takes part in the green parts of a plant – manly in the leaves. Photosynthesis produces carbohydrates, such as starch, and other important food products such as amino acids, proteins and fats. The chemical reactions producing these compounds are catalysed by enzymes found in a part of the cell called the chloroplast.

Research on mosquito vectors of disease can have important applications to the control of diseases such as malaria and dengue. Population genetic studies of mosquitoes can also increase our fundamental understanding of interpreting genetic diversity in terms of random genetic drift, population history, selection and barriers to gene flow both within and between species. These research interests extend to encompass molecular evolution, conservation genetics and biodiversity in Southeast Asia.

Dr Claire Goulsbra

My broad area of research focuses on the eroding peatland systems of the South Pennines. Of particular interest is the hydrological connectivity of various flow pathways, and how this is affected by the geomorphology and various other characteristics of this unique landscape. My PhD focussed on developing novel ways to monitor the interactions of these flow pathways and the use of innovative technologies remains one of my key interests. More recently, research focuses on carbon losses from eroding peatlands, specifically the fate of particulate carbon from peat deposited on floodplains.

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.
