Environmental engineering
research group

Environmental Engineering aims to embed sustainability in the design, construction, and maintenance of the built environment.

Our research includes: resource recovery and treatment of solid and liquid waste; modelling the fate of hazardous contaminants in the environment; sustainable urban water management; catchment hydrology and rehabilitation; and climate change impacts.

The Wind Research Laboratory (WiRL) is dedicated to furthering fundamental and applied knowledge relating to wind and its interaction with the built environment. Our mission is to better understand the risk severe wind events pose to structures and society through activities that advance our knowledge of wind as an extreme atmospheric phenomena, as well as the way structures respond when loaded by these events.

The Aquatic Systems research group is a multidisciplinary research group that is interested in all aspects of the hydrological cycle with a particular focus on the links between ecosystem health and hydrology.
