This review showcases a cross-section of the extraordinary work of our community over 2022, and celebrates the huge variety and impact of our activity across and between disciplines.

2022 was a year of challenges, including the effects of climate change taking hold across the globe, the cost of living crisis here in the UK and abroad, continued geopolitical instability, including the war in Ukraine, and of course the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. But our students and staff have nevertheless made huge contributions.
