A LIMERICK man has been appointed visiting professor at Oxford Brookes University.
Professor Martin Broderick, Garryowen, has been appointed visiting professor at the prestigious university in recognition of his contribution to environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) and sustainability issues in the UK for more than 25 years.
Oxford Brookes is considered one of the UK’s leading universities, enjoying an international reputation for teaching excellence.
Prof Broderick was born and raised in Garryowen, where he lived until he left in 1980 to pursue his studies.
He now lives in Oxford, England with his family.
An examining inspector at the UK National Infrastructure Directorate of the Planning Inspectorate, he has provided service and leadership in an executive role, on advisory boards for both national and international agencies.
He is currently acknowledged as a leading practitioner and an intellectual leader in the field of environmental and social impact assessment.
Following his appointment, he is now a full member of the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment at Oxford for the next five years.
“I am thrilled to receive this appointment,” Prof Broderick said.
“It is not only a recognition of the lasting contribution to the impact assessment academic community made by Oxford Brookes but also a great inspiration to strengthen my research in this area.”
