Callum Thomas has a degree in zoology, and; his doctorate is in seabird reproductive biology. He carried out postdoc research at Durham University into the wintering gull populations in Northern England before moving to Manchester Airport, where he set up its Bird Control Unit and Environment and Community Relations departments. Callum was then seconded to and later employed at MMU where, working with Professor David Raper, he established the Centre for Aviation Transport and the Environment. His expertise is in bird hazards to aircraft, the sustainable development and environmental impacts of the air transport industry and how these can be addressed to enable the aviation industry to grow and contribute to sustainable regional development.
Paul Hooper holds a Chair in environmental management and sustainability at MMU and has over 20 years of experience researching in the fields of aviation environmental management and corporate environmental and social responsibility. His work with the air transport sector has incorporated studies into aircraft noise respite, noise management strategies and alternative noise communication metrics, and he has participated as an expert panellist at key international conferences (eg ATAG Global Sustainable Aviation Summit, IATA Annual General Meeting). He has also worked extensively with Airports Council International (ACI) to deliver training in environmental management to professionals within the sector.
