Cranfield appoints new bioaerosol emissions Professor

Posted: Tuesday 27th October 2015

Cranfield University has recently appointed Sean Tyrrel as Professor of Bioaerosol Science.

Professor Tyrrel has a longstanding relationship with Cranfield’s environmental technology research: he gained his MPhil and PhD at the University. Since then, he has built a research track record over nearly 30 years in the application of microbiological principles to challenges in waste and wastewater management, environmental protection and implications for human health.

Professor Tyrrel has secured and managed research contracts funded by NERC, EPSRC, WRAP, Defra, DFID and several water and waste management companies. Dr Tyrrel leads Cranfield's work on bioaerosol measurement around composting facilities and other industrial sources.

Professor Elise Cartmell, theme lead for Environmental Technology at Cranfield University, said:

“Professor Tyrrel’s appointment is very well-deserved recognition of his excellent research activities over many years. This appointment also represents a strengthening of our capabilities in emissions, leading up to the launch of a major new Centre for Atmospheric Informatics and Emissions Control at Cranfield in 2016.”

Professor Sean Tyrrel said:

“I am delighted with my new appointment, and hope to continue to investigate how we can meet the challenges of waste and wastewater in our changing world.”

Cranfield’s excellence in energy, environmental technology and agrifood is recognised internationally. The University’s environment activities include centres of excellence in environmental risk and futures, and in water science.
