Dr Paul Mann

Associate Professor

Department: Geography and Environmental Sciences

I joined Northumbria University in 2013 after completing three years as a post-doctoral researcher in Woods Hole, USA. During this time, I had the opportunity to study some of the world’s largest river systems and grew increasingly interested in Arctic science. This experience, combined with my previous work with the British Antarctic Survey, led me to focus my research on polar systems and how they are responding to environmental change.
