Professor of Physics
Peter investigates fluid dynamical processes underpinning our understanding of the circulation of atmospheres and oceans. His group develops and exploits climate models of various planets within the Solar System and beyond, with particular emphasis on quantifying dynamical transport processes, atmospheric predictability and other nonlinear dynamical phenomena.
Lecturer in Chemistry
Grant’s research interests include the development of ultrasensitive absorption methods for trace gas detection, including VOCs and greenhouse gases. He is also pursues research into the optical and chemical properties of aerosols.
University Lecturer in Anthropology and Development
Laura’s research interests are: Amerindian conceptualizations of nature and society; historical and political ecology; development and environmental policies in Latin America; indigenous peoples and identity politics.
Patrick uses stable isotope analysis of archaeological and palaeontological remains in East and South Africa, South Asia, Melanesia, and Saudi Arabia as a means of reconstructing palaeoclimates, palaeoenvironments and palaeoecologies associated with the faunal and human habitation of these regions during the Middle Pleistocene, Late Pleistocene, and Holocene.
