Interactions between the human and physical environment underpin many of the most challenging issues facing societies in the 21st Century. Understanding these interactions, and the processes that govern them, represents the core of contemporary research in Geography.
Established in 2018, the Centre for Human and Physical Geography at the University of Huddersfield brings together a new team of leading researchers in the fields of environmental and earth sciences, biodiversity and conservation, GIS and remote sensing, and the politics of human-environment relations.
Researchers at the Centre engage in both theoretical and applied studies and have a track record of interdisciplinary collaboration, including strong links with industry and not-for-profit organisations. Current research at the Centre includes projects on biodiversity conservation and urbanisation, sustainable urban mobility, palaeoclimate and palaeoenvironmental reconstruction and past sedimentation processes. Members of the centre have fieldwork sites in the United Kingdom, United States, South America, New Zealand, and the Arctic. The Centre's commitment to knowledge exchange with industry and citizens ensures research findings inform relevant environmental policy, management strategies and social change.
