Geoscience Postgraduate Research

Our postgraduate degrees give you chance to engage in cutting-edge research. We look at energy and natural resources and biogeochemistry and the environment.

We are developing nanoparticles called ‘SmartGates’. They deliver nutrients to microorganisms at the oil spill surface. These stimulate the microbes to clean up the oil more effectively.
