PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species. Read more

Environmentally induced epigenetic effects in a fish

Animals may be exposed to a wide range of environmental stimuli over the course of their development, some of which may be harmful, such as pollutants, and these may subsequently affect their behaviour and/or physiology and that of their offspring. Read more

Earthworms and sustainable agriculture

Worldwide, soils are in a poor state, through erosion, compaction and the loss of organic carbon, and so it is essential that we manage them in order to maintain the productivity of agricultural land. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity across scales

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. Key questions remain about how land-use change drives species losses and changing composition across the tropics, from local to regional spatial scales. Read more

Model-based autonomy for real-time monitoring of environmental pollutants

There is an emerging need for technologies that can rapidly map the location and concentration of pollutants within a range of environments, particularly in the aftermath of an environmental disaster. Read more

Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures. Read more

Using psychology to change environmental behaviours

The world is in a climate crisis, so research is needed to develop effective interventions to encourage behaviours that help rather than harm the environment. Read more

PhD Study in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning

All our PhD students have the support of two (or more) supervisors to guide them through their projects, a dedicated training programme of support within our Department (which includes weekly workshops), and wider training provided by the University and the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP). Read more

Probabilistic Performance Specifications For Suds/green Infrastructure

Urban drainage systems are traditionally sized according to extreme high return period design storm events. Approaches based on design storms remain necessary for flood risk assessment. Read more

Modelling Site-scale Suds At The Street-scale

Urbanisation is usually associated with the replacement of permeable (green) surfaces with impermeable hard surfaces (roads, roofs, etc), which alter the catchment’s response to rainfall. Read more

Flow Patterns And Pollutant Retention In Vegetated Suds Ponds

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling tools enable engineers to visualise 3D flow patterns within complex structures and to represent the movement of sediments and/or dissolved materials within the flows. Read more
