Derek Mckinney

Biological and Environmental Sciences (BES), within the Faculty of Natural Sciences at the University of Stirling, has a strong reputation for research in environmental & ecological sciences and the science that underpins water & food security, and places considerable emphasis on the impact of its research. BES is a leading centre for nationally and internationally excellent field and laboratory based specialist research, and has a unique focus on the relationships between people and the environment. Our findings are used to inform policy makers and practitioners in environmental regulation, planning and management.

My research focuses on a number of sustainability and disease-related topics.  A central theme of my research is to understand how changes in agricultural practices and land-use, together with projected climate change, can increase the risk of exposure to human pathogens. I have a strong research background in environmental pathogen ecology, and water & soil pollution caused by the carriage, survival & cycling of zoonotic pathogens and enteric diseases through agro-ecosystems and aquatic environments. Much of my work is carried out in the context of sustainable agriculture and food & water security and is underpinned by a significant level of engagement with the local community and a wide range of stakeholders.
