Our staff and postgraduate students are innovative, creative scholars.

Much of our research takes final form in high-impact articles or books. But a considerable amount of our activity takes place in other mediums. There is no single formula for communicating research that operates at different speeds and rhythms, and we are committed to sharing our research in all its forms, from the fine-grained steps of partnering in community initiatives through to the high-resolution experiences of virtual reality and drone mapping.
