Nina is an evolutionary biologist with research interests focused on the evolutionary ecology of sex. She has worked extensively on various aspects of sexual selection and sexual conflict, in particular on the role of selfish genetic elements in reproductive biology.
Peter’s research focuses on climate events and climate change, atmospheric weather systems, hazard and risk datasets. His work with the climateprediction.net team has produced large atmospheric model simulation datasets at a resolution high enough to resolve extratropical storm systems, with the potential to drive hydrological models in the future.
Jamie is an evolutionary biologist with interests in molecular ecology, population genetics and evolution. Two key strands are fish population genetics, and parasite systematics and evolution. He focuses on questions in the field of population/conservation genetics, with particular emphasis on applying knowledge of population genetic process to the management and conservation of Atlantic salmon and trout, and a variety of marine organisms, including sea fans and lobster, with the aim of understanding gene flow and connectivity in relation to the design and designation of marine protected areas.
Eduarda is an environmental biologist investigating reproductive development and function and the susceptibility of these processes to disruption by environmental stressors. Her research focuses on fish and has ranged from investigating the endocrine control of reproduction to addressing the population level effects of chemical exposure for wild fish, using systems biology strategies.
Aimee’s research area is antimicrobial resistance in the environment, particularly due to anthropogenic impacts in wastewater and receiving environments. This includes evolution and ecology of antimicrobial resistance, direct selection at low concentrations and co-selection by other antimicrobials and non-antimicrobial compounds, environmental risk assessment, and developing and validating the novel ‘SELECT’ method for rapid determination of selective concentrations of antibiotics and environmental surveillance of antimicrobial resistance. She has a long-standing collaboration with AstraZeneca and engaging with industry and policy makers.
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.
Chris is an aquatic Microbial Ecologist (mainly marine). He looks particularly at algal bloom impacts on shellfisheries (e.g. mussel farms) and reservoirs. He is an expert in Cyanobacteria, working with Canadian partners. His focus is on ecological implications rather than applied science. He has close ties with Plymouth Marine Laboratories, where single cell culture takes place and linked to genomics.
Brendan’s wide ranging research interests are in biodiversity conservation. He largely focuses on the study of marine vertebrates (turtles, mammals, birds and sharks) and interdisciplinary approaches to conservation research, including focussing on the issue of microplastics in our oceans.
Feng’s research interests lie in the intersection of water, ecosystems, society and technologies, focusing on three main themes: (i) hydro-socio-ecological systems under change, (ii) resilience and environmental hazard, and (iii) innovative data technologies for the environment and development. He also works on low-cost sensor networks and participatory monitoring in a sustainable development context.
Guangtao’s research is focused on developing and applying new computer models, data analytics and artificial intelligence tools to tackle urban water challenges in water supply resilience, network leakage, flood risk, urban stormwater and wastewater management.
Ian’s research areas include community ecology; long term ecological changes in British river systems; data analysis and modelling; multiple stressors; land use, climate, hydromorphology and river organisms and trophic interactions.
Albert’s research focuses on water and human environment systems. Particular focus is on: hydraulic modelling, urban drainage, flood forecasting, innovation technology applications, water-food-energy-ecosystems nexus, climate change impact on critical infrastructure, prediction of water-borne disease, hazard impact and cascading effects assessment, and mitigation and resilience strategies.
David’s research area is urban water management, including sustainable and resilient water systems, integration and control and water-energy-carbon interactions.
Tom’s research covers the data science associated with monitoring and sensing of built environment assets ( including optimisation and artificial intelligence) including the management and integration of disparate data sources.
