Pollution: Understanding environmental contamination and developing sustainable solutions
A myriad and ever-increasing range of anthropogenic contaminants are now present in our environment. We seek to assess the fate, behaviour, and impacts of pollutants (from source to sink), and work on a wide range of priorities including emerging contaminants, marine plastics, pharmaceuticals, and heavy metals. Our research seeks to not only quantify the presence of pollution but to understand its risks to and impacts on biodiversity, working at the molecular, individual and population levels.
- Sustainable water quality management and wastewater treatment solutions
- Monitoring and assessing the chronic impacts of pollutants
- Minimising pollution in rural sectors
- Preventing harm due to priority pollutants
