Bournemouth University Expert Directory

This directory has been produced by BU’s press office – the first and central point for all media enquiries – to help you find experts quickly and easily who can add comment and context to stories in the news. You can search for academics by name or by their fields of expertise, using the search bar.

We also have experts to add comment to general features on higher education and student life and can put you in touch with undergraduate and postgraduate students for case studies. This directory is not a definitive list of all our experts, so please contact us if you can’t find the person you are looking for.
