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

Starlings as vectors and reservoirs of disease

Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) are a widespread avian species found in close association with human developments and agriculture. In the UK, the majority of starlings are resident all year round and their breeding season takes place from March to April. 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

Presence and drivers of geographic variation in delphinid vocal signals

Understanding the variation present in animal signals can provide insight into drivers behind it, such as the social structure, ecology, distribution and genetic diversity present in populations. Read more

Bio-inspired flocking control for the autonomous and electric vehicles (AEVs) fleet in disaster response operations

Efficient disaster response operations demand well-coordinated and mobile resources to minimise casualties and property damage. Autonomous and electric vehicles (AEVs) have emerged as a promising solution to enhance disaster response fleets. Read more

Vectors on heat islands: Assessing urbanisation and microclimatic effects on mosquito-borne disease risks

Mosquito-borne diseases increasingly threaten human and wildlife health. A nexus of globalising trade and transport, environmental changes, and burgeoning human populations are causing mosquito proliferations, biological invasions, and altering zoonotic disease risk. Read more

Understanding Stress Regulation and Stress Resilience in the Avian Brain

Bird brains diverged from mammalian brains over 300 million years ago. Over that time, the hypothalamic and brainstem mechanisms of the stress response have been remarkably conserved. Read more
