Meet our staff

Our staff members are very active in various organisations outside the University. These include societies such as the BPS, editorial boards, review committees, external examining responsibilities and the boards of various agencies. They are frequently called upon to provide expert advice on topical issues, and some staff are highly visible in the media. We also collaborate closely with a number of local and regional community organisations.
