Joanie is interested in the complex inter-relationship between identity, the economy, and the environment and exploring sustainable communities through theory, practice, policy and governance.
Clare researches social movements, protest and environmental politics. Her work has been particularly focused on environmental and global justice movements, although she has recently been engaged in a pan-European study of protest on a range of issues. Her current work looks at pro-environmental behaviour change – looking especially at energy use and clothing – and climate change policy networks.
Ilya is an applied ecologist interested in climate-vegetation interactions at the scales relevant to management and decision-making. He has expertise in microclimatology, remote-sensing and fine-scale hydrological modelling.
Christina’s research focuses on risk perception and communication; public responses to emerging and complex socio-technical issues; public attitudes and acceptability towards environmental and energy issues.
Nichola’s research focuses on risk perception and its communication in a range of fields including the environment, science, technology, public policy, sustainability and perceptions of climate change and energy futures.
Pablo’s main area of expertise relates to the computational modelling in offshore renewable energy (tidal stream turbines and wind turbine farms); turbulence in environmental flows and hydraulics; or multi-phase flows: Eulerian-Eulerian (free-surface) and Eulerian-Lagrangian (sediments). He also works on the development of river turbine arrays for developing countries.
Shunqi’s research covers the physical and numerical modelling of coastal and estuarine processes; prediction of large-scale extreme waves and surge; climate change impacts to the marine environment; coastal defences and flooding and marine renewable energy.
Zhihua’s research covers computational fluid dynamics, turbulence modelling, interfacial and multiphase flows, water wave mechanics, hydrodynamics, hydraulics and marine renewable energy.
