Current activities

Professor Tyrrel's research focuses on the application of 环境微生物学 to the management of organic solid wastes and wastewater. 他在该领域有超过30年的研究经验,并获得和管理NERC资助的研究合同, EPSRC, WRAP, Defra, DFID and several water and waste management companies. 他在研究废物管理实践之间的界面方面有良好的记录, 环境微生物学, and human health.

Professor Tyrrel is a key contributor to an on-going programme of work related to the fate of pathogens in faecal waste residuals (such as sewage sludge and animal slurry) applied to agricultural land, funded by NERC, EU-FP7, United Utilities, 以及沃尔什奖学金项目. 他为WRAP承担了一系列与英国农业有机回收风险评估相关的项目. Professor Tyrrel leads Cranfield's work on bioaerosol emission and dispersion from composting facilities and the implications of exposure to bioaerosols on human health.

He has been recognised nationally and internationally for this work through his appointment to the BSI Air Quality Committee and as UK principal delegate to the CEN committee on bioaerosol measurement. 泰瑞尔教授是特许环境学家和特许水与环境管理学会的研究员.
