PhD projects

Stuart Harrad’s specific research foci are: the assessment of human exposure and the significance of indoor contamination; and the exploitation of the chiral properties of POPs. His current research projects include:

Utilising the chiral properties of POPs as a tool for furthering understanding of their environmental sources, fate and behaviour
Assessing human exposure to POPs (internal and external)
Elucidating pathways via which brominated flame retardants migrate from products into indoor dust
Environmental fate and behaviour of POPs in UK lakes
Emissions of brominated micropollutants from steel making
Emissions of brominated flame retardants associated with the treatment of waste electronics, furnishings and building materials

Professor Harrad welcomes enquiries from prospective doctoral researchers in his areas of interest.
