How to use the database

If you know who you want to speak to, search the database under the expert's name. Alternatively, use the search engine to find people with a particular area of expertise (e.g. stress, obesity, climate change), or browse through all experts from a faculty or department.

Search tips

As you type in the 'Area of Expertise' or 'Name' search boxes, predictive text will suggest search terms to you. These terms can help you find the right profiles. Alternatively, you can try entering your own search terms which might also bring up relevant results.

You can browse all profiles in the database by using the A-Z listings at the bottom of the page.

More search options are available by clicking 'Advanced Search' in the top righthand corner.
