Who Are We?

We are a team of multidisciplinary researchers at the University of Glasgow with an interest in industrial, and particularly extractive, landscapes and how they will be viewed and used in the future.

John MacDonald

Lecturer in Earth Science

John is mineral chemist specialising in carbonate minerals, for example for atmospheric carbon dioxide capture. His work includes using industrial by-products such as steel slag for carbon dioxide capture, and therefore how we deal with legacy slag heaps.
