Geography research plays a crucial role in understanding the physical and human dimensions of our planet’s complex landscapes, environments and societies. 

Our researchers investigate pressing global challenges, including climate change, urbanisation and environmental degradation.

To address these challenges, we’re working on a range of solutions by studying climate change impacts on natural and human systems, developing sustainable urban planning and design practices, and using GIS and earth observation science to analyse and visualise geospatial data. 

We specialise in a wide variety of areas, including physical and human geography, GIS and earth observation science cartography, and geospatial analysis. 

Our experts collaborate with a broad range of partners, including policymakers, NGOs, governments and other stakeholders to develop strategies that balance economic development with environmental and social sustainability.

Geography research is creating significant impact, from informing policy decisions to improving public health and enhancing environmental and social sustainability and resilience.
