Dr Joanne Swaffield

Joanne Swaffield joined the Sustainable Consumption Institute as a Research Associate in November 2013. Her current research focuses on the construction of ‘appropriate’ sustainable behaviour and the role of reuse networks in modern neoliberal society. Jo is also involved in the ESRC funded project, ‘Households, Retailers and Food Waste Transitions’.

Jo’s research interests include, the discursive construction of (un)sustainable behaviour, the ‘neoliberalisation’ of environmental governance and the role of environmental ‘change agents’ in neoliberal society.

Dr Dan Welch

Dan’s research interests include: cultural economy and cultural intermediation; social ontology and theories of practice; sustainability communications and commercial communications more widely; and sustainable consumption as discourse and practice. He is interested in exploring neglected theoretical resources within theories of practice for the study of sustainable consumption, as well as developing links between practice theory and complementary approaches such as socio-technical transitions and economic sociology.

Dr Nicholas Bryan

The main research area of my group is Environmental Chemistry, and in particular, the interaction of radionuclides with natural systems. Current projects involve the study of the interaction of these elements with natural colloids, including humic substances. Colloids have a high affinity for many pollutants, and can act as a vector for their migration in the environment. Lab experiments are used to study sorption and desorption mechanisms, and are backed up by work involving real samples from the field.
