Sustainability Research (SRI) PhD Projects 

The Sustainable Research Institute's interdisciplinary research focuses on the causes and consequences of environmental change at different scales and in diverse contexts. We also specialize in participatory, action-oriented research that brings together government, businesses, NGOs and local communities.  We see our doctoral programme as integral to the activities and success of our Institute; our PGRs will influence the achievement of sustainable development in the future and hence we are committed to providing the highest level of interdisciplinary research training in sustainable development.  You may be interested in hearing what Philip Antwi Agyei has to say about his experience in Leeds (PhD 2013).  You may also be interested in viewing one of the winning talks in the 2017 Leeds Doctoral College Researcher of the Year awards by Lina Brand Correa.  You are invited to browse the projects in the categories below to find out more about what we do:
