Andy Cundy, Professor of Geosciences (Applied Geochemistry), leads the geology group in the School of Environment and Technology at the University of Brighton, U.K. His research and teaching interests include the environmental behaviour of heavy metal and radioactive contaminants; contaminated land and its management; and environmental geology. After his first degree in ocean sciences at the University of Plymouth, he undertook a PhD at the University of Southampton investigating radionuclide and heavy metal contamination along the south coast of England. Following his PhD, he has spent 15 years lecturing at four U.K. universities, and has worked on contaminant geochemistry in four continents in projects funded by government, the Atomic Weapons Establishment, the Environment Agency, the EU and private industry. His current focus is on the development and field application of novel methods of remediating contaminated land and groundwater, for which he is co-principal investigator on several large-scale projects funded by government, European and industry sources. He has published over 50 scientific articles and sits on a range of national and international peer review and scientific / industrial committees.
