Informing the world’s transition to a sustainable, low-carbon and climate resilient future.
How do we persuade governments to negotiate for the global good? Can we build batteries from plants? How does car pollution affect babies in the womb?
Researchers across Queen Mary are collaborating to find answers to these questions and many more, to inform our pivot to a sustainable, low-carbon and climate resilient future.
As land use, climate and other anthropogenic changes alter the distribution of plants across the British Isles, can scientists predict future patterns?
What does the size of a plant genome tell us about its chances of survival? As land use, climate and other anthropogenic changes alter the distribution of plants across the British Isles, can scientists predict future patterns?
Microplastics are tiny plastics particles created when plastics degrade and escape into the environment, releasing toxic pollutants into our soil and water. Within 30 years, 12bn tonnes of microplastic could have entered the environment.
Professor Jonathan Grigg and Professor Chris Griffiths have played a pivotal role in making London’s air healthier for us all – and particularly for our children. Air pollution is the top environmental risk to human health in the UK.
We need to increase renewable energy generation to meet net zero targets and to make energy more affordable. Discover how Joe Briscoe, Reader in Energy Materials and Devices at Queen Mary is researching how solar power generation can be made more efficient.
