Research highlights

About our research

We lead major international projects, for instance researching coastal community vulnerability to storms in Thailand (Newton Fund), sand dune evolution in NW England (Natural Environment Research Council) and malaria risk mapping in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (Global Challenges Research Fund).

Our research has meaningful societal impact, with work on peat swamp conservation contributing to environmental policy documents published by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, and coastal geomorphology findings being exploited by the Sefton Coast Landscape Partnership to influence operational environmental management practices.

Our research activities are aligned with the University’s Institute for Social Responsibility and the Data Science STEM Research Centre.
