The Largest Survey of the Hard X-ray Sky - Ever!

Supervisory Team: Tony Bird. Project description. When viewed through hard X-ray instruments, the sky gives an ever-changing view of the most energetic and explosive processes in the universe. Read more

Modelling Convergent, Divergent and Oscillatory Phenomena in Social Dynamics

If you are interested in building mathematical models to explain social phenomena in a variety of contexts, from flocking animals to interacting crowds, and you have a strong academic background in applied mathematics or a related discipline, then this project could be perfect for you. Read more

Image-based Recognition of Unidentified Featured Objects (UFOs)

With the development of deep learning approaches and convolutional neural networks (CNN) in particular, the task of recognising objects from an image has become associated with the ability to train a network using a large number of labelled images for each class of interest [He2016]. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Cats’ perspective and welfare associated with outdoor access

Although freedom of movement is a key pillar of animal welfare, and outdoor access is considered the best way to allow cats to exercise and express natural behaviours1, restrictions often apply to owned cats. Read more

Flight mechanics and stability in birds during extreme manoeuvres of take-off and landing

During take-off birds accelerate primarily through from the ground reaction force, with aerodynamics playing a lesser role. In landing things are quite different; birds use mainly aerodynamic drag on the wings to decelerate, with the legs bringing them finally to rest after touchdown. Read more

Fur and Feathers: colour, structure and flow control

The objective in this exciting cross-disciplinary project is to investigate the potential of a bio-inspired coating of flexible devices to passively modify energetic modes of an unsteady crossflow and to assess, for the first time, the role of colour in determining mechanical properties. Read more
