Faculty of Science & Technology research

We are involved in world-leading research projects, and collaborate with public and private sector organisations around the globe.

Our staff are active across a variety of research themes and travel around the world to contribute their expertise to expeditions and projects being led by other academic institutions and private organisations, as well as taking the lead on their own research projects.

Within BU, we contribute to a number of centres and institutes, all of which involve collaboration with experts from complementary fields. Broadly, our research concentrates on the following themes:

  • Technology & Design
  • Creative, Digital & Cognitive Science
  • Health, Wellbeing & Society
  • Biodiversity, Environmental Change & Green Economy
  • Communities, Cultures & Conflicts

As well as the work that our academics are involved with, we have a number of postgraduate researchers within the faculty who contribute to our exciting and thriving research culture.
