Daphne Ezer Biology
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning, lab automation, and time series analysis, applied to agritech.
Mark Hodson Environment and Geography
  • Soil scientist with chemical and ecological leanings.
  • I have worked on the remediation of metal contaminated sites, the fate and behaviour and toxicity of contaminants (largely metals but a little work on organic compounds), the rates of dissolution / weathering of materials in the surface environment and the impacts on soil health on different land management regimes. I would be interested in assessing impacts of diverting wastes from or to agricultural land and the potential reuse of "wastes" as soil amendments either to enhance currently productive agricultural land or to restore currently damaged soil. I do a little work on carbon sequestration as well so looking at how "wastes" might be used to enhance carbon sequestration in soil is also of interest.
Vlado Lazarov Physics
  • Materials for energy, synthesis/growth and characterisation
Marco Lucamarini Physics
  • Chair of Experimental Quantum Communications.
  • We work around generating and detecting very dim optical signals, down to the single photon level, in the infrared. This could lead to saving (optical) power. We also work to reduce the number of the intermediate points in optical communications that need to be supplied with power. We are very close to the industries of photonics, opto-electronic devices and new materials for the generation of extremely low intensity light.
Keith McKenna
  • First principles predictive modelling of materials with a focus on energy efficiency and sustainability.
  • Research interests include catalysis, electronics, magnetic materials and photovoltaics.
Michael Plevin Biology
  • Protein engineering with applications to industrial biotechnology
Brett Sallach Environment and Geography
  • Environmental engineer and analytical chemist interested in the fate and ecotoxicity of chemical pollution in the environment.
  • I am particularly interested in understanding the risk of chemical exposure associated with the reuse of wastewater treated products (wastewater recyclying and biosolids).
  • My group uses mass spectrometry to measure the fate and impacts of chemicals in various environmental compartments including agroecosystems, aquatic, and urban environments.
