There is a thriving and expanding research culture within the Centre for Public Protection at UWIC. We are expanding our infrastructure with the construction of state of the art environmental Sciences and metrology laboratories at the Llandaff campus.

Our academic team include researchers who are internationally recognised in their fields of expertise and we have a healthy and expanding body of research students.

  • Air pollution and health,
