Environmental Management, Environmental Management (Energy) or Environmental Management (Water Resources) Masters (MSc): Who teaches this course

About the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing

Image of mountainThis course is delivered by the School of Natural & Built Environments in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing.

The Faculty's wide selection of undergraduate and postgraduate courses covers a diverse range of subject areas, from aerospace to geography; from maths and computing to biotechnology; and many more. Our collaborative set-up provides new opportunities for our students, and we design our courses with industry professionals to ensure you stay up to date with the latest developments.

School of Natural & Built Environments

The School of Natural & Built Environments prides itself on the high quality of its teaching, as recognised by the excellent and satisfactory awards in various subject reviews undertaken by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) on behalf of the Higher Education Funding Council.

The School has invested in developing its labs for both teaching and research, including:

  • facilities for environmental monitoring, geology, geochemistry, and mapping/GIS/computing; and
  • specialist instrumentation laboratories (eg nuclear metrology; laser raman spectroscopy; and 3D mapping).

Staff teaching on this course

Dr Kerry Brown

Title: Course director
Email: k.brown@kingston.ac.uk

Kerry BrownKerry Brown studies both pure ecological and applied conservation biological research. He investigates how global environmental change influences plant communities in tropical and temperate ecosystems. His research and teaching integrates ecological and socio-ecological information to assess how environmental change impacts biodiversity patterns and ecosystem function and ecosystem services.


Professor Gavin Gillmore

Email: g.gillmore@kingston.ac.uk

Gavin GilmoreResearch interest in the "energy trilemma" – sustainability, security and affordability; nuclear power and environmental aspects, particularly radioactivity; unconventional hydrocarbon exploitation (eg shale gas); most aspects of the energy debate. Areas of research interest include radon, health and geology. This includes radon in homes / workplaces / caves / abandoned mines; measurement methods; radon and tectonics (including earthquake activity); radium and associated health risks; mining pollution from radioactive materials and heavy metals. Other areas of interest include the application of sedimentary analysis (and microfossils) to reconstructing past environments – both in prehistory (Mesolithic- Chalcolithic) and in geological time (Mesozoic-Quaternary).


Dr Peter Hooda

Email: p.hooda@kingston.ac.uk

Peter HoodaDr Peter Hooda's research focuses on biogeochemical cycling of nutrients, trace elements and organic chemicals in managed and semi-natural ecosystems. Much of this has been driven by land use and environment change pressures and how they influence the processes that ultimately determine their retention in soils and sediments, release to water or uptake by plants. Examples of more recent work include: treated wastewater impacts on receiving aquatic environments; climate change mediated mobilisation and transportation of naturally occurring trace elements, land use change and soil carbon dynamics, and organic micro-contaminant dynamics in river systems.
