Dynamic adaptive pathways to manage nuisance macroalgal blooms (NMBs) in the south coast of England

We expect candidates to develop a research proposal for the following topic. This is an exciting opportunity for interdisciplinary researchers interested in modelling human-environment interactions at the coast, identifying the potential outcomes from alternative governance scenarios. Read more

Artificial Intelligence for Renewable Energy and Sustainability

Renewable energy sources have gained increased attention and investments from the industries, governments and society, such as wind, solar, and hydrological sources, to enable a more sustainable and yet economically feasible development. Read more

Domestic combustion as a source of air pollution

In developed countries, it has been estimated that (pre-Covid) we spend more than 90% of our time indoors, much of this at home. Despite this fact, most of the regulation and research around air quality and consequent health effects has been on the outdoor environment or on occupational exposure in the workplace. Read more

Improving our understanding of the atmospheric sulfur cycle and its impact on air pollution and climate

Project summary. Particulate matter (PM) is a major air quality challenge, estimated to be responsible for >29,000 equivalent deaths a year in the UK alone, and also represents a major uncertainty in current climate model predictions due to both the direct and indirect effects on the earths radiative budget. Read more

Direct measurements of NOx emissions in central London: How are they changing and how can they be used to inform government policy?

Air pollution is currently the largest environmental health stressor on the UK population. At present the main pollutants of concern in urban centres are nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particles less than 2.5µm in diameter, measured by their mass (PM2.5), alongside ozone in suburban and rural environments.

Quantifying the combined impact of climate change and ozone on crops

Overview. The risk to food security posed by global environmental change is one of the most significant threats to health and economic stability for a large fraction of the world’s population. Read more

Sustainable means for the removal of emerging pathogens in the tertiary treatment of wastewaters in western and emerging economies

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
21 September 2016 represented a watershed for humanity when the General Assembly of the United Nations declared that ‘Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become one of the biggest threats to global health and endangers other major priorities, such as human development’ (Tell et al, 2019). Read more

Do pesticide exposed honey bees feel the heat?

Multiple stressors are implicated in UK honey bee colony losses, but whilst our understanding of stressors such as climate change and pesticides is improving, we lack an appreciation of how they interact. Read more
