Department of Geography and Environment


Our Research

Our research is organised into three broad research themes:

  1. Sustainable Development and Transformation
  2. Earth Surface Processes 
  3. Palaeoecology

We draw from social, environmental and geosciences to address local and global sustainability challenges and the impact of rapid environmental change on contemporary surface processes.
