Dr Rebecca Brownlow MSci, CSci

Lecturer in Environmental Science


I am a lecturer in environmental science interested in greenhouse gases, particularly methane. I have experience in greenhouse gas research and environmental consulting, with a focus on landfill gas. 



I have an MSci (Hons) in Environmental Geoscience and PhD in Earth Science on ‘Tropical methane emissions: using isotopes to characterise source signatures’ from Royal Holloway, University of London. Following my PhD, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, on vertical greenhouse gas profiles using AirCores, a type of atmospheric sampling system.

I then moved into environmental consulting focusing on aspects of waste and air quality topics, including Landfill gas risk and resource assessments, and waste life cycle assessments to evaluate the environmental impacts of waste management activities.

I joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2022 and teach on the BSc Geography and BSc Environmental Science courses as well as the MSc Environmental Management course.
