Hannah Cooper

Assistant Professor in Agronomy, Faculty of Science



Dr Hannah Cooper is currently an Assistant Professor in Agronomy (2023-present) after receiving her PhD in Environmental Science from the University of Nottingham. Her research focuses on enhancing sustainable crop production and evaluating agri-food climate resilience. Her research spans a range of management and land use gradients, including arable soils and peatlands in temperate and tropical regions. One of her main interests is assessing the sustainable management of crop production systems through a variety of techniques, such as measuring greenhouse gas emissions, quantifying soil architecture through X-ray Computed Tomography and assessing the carbon thermostability through Rock Eval pyrolysis.
