Dr Conor Walsh

Upon completion of his BSc in Environmental Science from the University of Limerick, Conor undertook an MSc in Sustainable Development. His doctoral studies focused on methodological adaptation of a land based sustainability indicator, with specific relevance to Ireland. This included development of a method to incorporate methane into ecological footprinting, as well a tool for comparing the emissions of commuting (including cycling). The later of which was referenced in the Irish Times.

Mr Michael Traut

Following completion of my PhD at Tyndall Manchester (supervisors: Alice Bows-Larkin and Ruth Wood), I am now an EPSRC Doctoral Prize fellow in the same group. My research focusses on shipping and climate change, and monitoring and quantifying emissions, and on mitigation technologies in the shipping sector. I am associated with the EPSRC-funded consortium proejct Shipping in Changing Climates (SCC) as well as the project Fleet Suite.

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.

Dr Carly McLachlan

My area of research covers how people and organisations engage with energy and climate change issues. This generally means that I am looking at the interactions between science, technology and people. One particular area of interest is in renewable energy siting issues. We have an explicit policy relevance focus at Tyndall Manchester and so we try to conduct research that has practical relevance to the climate change agenda for national and local government, businesses and NGOs.

Prof Peter Stansby

Peter Stansby has been Professor of Hydrodynamics at Manchester University since 1990. 

He obtained his BA in Engineering and his PhD in Aerodynamics at Cambridge University. He then worked for Atkins Research and Development near London on wind and offshore engineering for two years. On moving to Manchester University in 1980, his early research interests were in wave and current loading on offshore structures, specializing in vortex-induced vibrations. Since around 1990 he has worked on coastal hydrodynamics, mainly in relation to shallow-water flows and surf zone waves.
