Professor William Bloss

Professor of Atmospheric Science

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences

Atmospheric processing affects the current and future composition of our air, with impacts upon human and environmental health, air quality and climate.

My group's work improves scientific understanding of the causes of poor air quality, and hence the development of effective policy measures for Clean Air.  We focus upon the sources of atmospheric pollutants, and the chemical ...

Professor Stuart Harrad

Professor Stuart Harrad

Professor of Environmental Chemistry

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences

Stuart is an environmental chemist whose research addresses all aspects of the environmental sources, fate and behaviour of persistent organic pollutants (POPs). He has particular interests in human exposure to POPs with a focus on indoor pathways. He is also active in research that explores the environmental forensics utility of chirality.

Stuart is part of the Birmingham Plastics Network, an ...

Professor Roy Harrison

Professor Roy Harrison

Queen Elizabeth II Birmingham Centenary Professor of Environmental Health

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences

Roy Harrison’s research interests lie in the field of environment and human health. His main specialism is in air pollution, from emissions through atmospheric chemical and physical transformations to exposure and effects on human health. Much of this work is designed to inform the development of policy.

Prof Zongbo Shi

Prof Zongbo Shi

Professor of Atmospheric Biogeochemistry

School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences

The atmosphere and atmospheric processes interact with the biogeochemistry of the earth system. This in turn affects human and environmental health, air quality and climate. My group addresses three areas of research central to these impacts:

  • Sources and emissions of chemical substances to the atmosphere
  • Physical and chemical transformation of aerosol particles and their constituents in the ...
