The centre concentrates leading UK expertise in key fields of data sciences, informatics, and decision sciences, coupled with novel sensor technology and informatics development. 

CEAI specialises in the development of transformational informatics technology, integrating data gathering and monitoring technologies (sensor tech), data manipulation and interpretation (informatics and data sciences).  CAEI includes research on air quality and climate change, soil quality, crop growth and monitoring, natural capital, ecosystem goods and services and on urban systems. In this way. CAEI articulate the benefits and findings from the data collected, providing a whole system approach to agricultural and environmental informatics.

Working with us

Our research spans across projects funded by diverse UK and other national and international funding bodies for practical and innovative science applications.
