We deliver high-quality geographical research and impact that drives disciplinary agendas and addresses major societal and environmental challenges locally, nationally and internationally.
We are passionate about research and where it can take us. We are constantly pushing the scientific boundaries of geographical and environmental research, setting new intellectual agendas and advancing conceptual, theoretical and methodological debates.
We also use our knowledge, skills, curiosity and creativity to design and conduct research that matters and makes a difference in the world. We pursue answers and solutions to challenging questions and problems across the social and natural sciences. Most importantly, we provide an inclusive research environment where postgraduate, postdoctoral and academic researchers work closely together to develop their research careers.
