Risk and protective factors to spoken language acquisition for deaf children in the UK

Good spoken language in the early years predicts later academic outcomes (Law et al., 2017) but deafness disrupts the acquisition of spoken language by limiting access to the speech signal due to reduced access to sound, pitch distortion (Hopkins, 2015) and frequency smearing causing an increased susceptibility to noise (Moore, 1996).

Neuromorphic sensing and computing

Neuromorphic vision sensors enable the acquisition of scenes with limited energy requirements and low data rate, only acquiring information on what changes in the scene, with a behaviour similar to the one of the human eye. Read more

Robust Computational Methods for High-Dimensional Imaging

This project aims to develop new computational algorithms to optimize the acquisition and processing of single-photon data and enable fast imaging in extreme conditions using statistical and learning based approaches.   The project is funded for 3.5 years for international students and a ~£17K annual stipend.

Language access and conceptual development in deaf and hearing infants (GLIGAT_U24PSY)

Primary supervisor - Dr Teodora Gliga. Secondary supervisor - Prof Larissa Samuelson. A fully funded PhD position is available with the Baby Language and Conceptual Knowledge Study (BLoCKS), led by Dr Teodora Gliga. Read more

Language development in early childhood: Precursors of the transition to literacy

Early language skills are known to contribute to later reading acquisition. This project will examine how variation in early language affects the transition to literacy among children developing typically or atypically due to factors such as neurodiversity or socio-economic status. Read more

Endosomal Sorting Complex Required for Transport (ESCRT): Investigation of the role in acquired drug resistance in colon cancer

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Despite treatment advances, one of the most common cancers, colorectal cancer (CRC), still has a 45% mortality rate, and one of the major problems is the build-up of resistance to cancer drugs during treatment (‘acquired resistance’) such that over time the drugs stop working. Read more

Blood biomarkers of Small Vessel Disease related to cognitive impairment and neuroimaging findings

An opportunity has arisen for a 4-year PhD studentship within the Department of Brain Sciences at Imperial College London funded by the Multi-institutional VIDA (Vascular and Immune Contributions to DementiA) network. Read more
