Novel compression strategies for emerging visualisation modalities for smart cities and immersive environments

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

Passive cooling in cities: a multi-scale modelling approach

Passive cooling (e.g. Natural ventilation) is regarded as an important building technology to reduce energy consumption, overheating risk and promote sustainability in the built environment. Read more

Personal Data Store, Smart Cities Data Marketplaces, and Sensing as a Service for Internet of Things [Self-Funded Students Only]

The Internet of Things envisions the creation of an environment where everyday objects (e.g., microwaves, fridges, cars, coffee machines) are connected to the Internet and make users’ lives more productive, efficient, and convenient. Read more

The aerodynamics of skyscrapers: tall building clusters and the urban environment

By 2050 our cities will host 68% of the world’s population, compared to the current 54%, and 33% in the 1960s. This increase is often accomplished by the proliferation of tall buildings (TBs) that maximise the provision of housing and commerce using a limited street-level footprint. Read more

Spatial variations of the urban boundary layer – what are the feedbacks from anthropogenic heat fluxes?

The next generation of weather models will have high resolution sub-km modelling. These will be used to inform critical decisions about how cities operate day-to-day into the future. At this scale, the different neighbourhoods of a city can be distinguished. Read more

PhD position in the Restoration of Soil Microbial and Invertebrate Biodiversity in Urban Greenspaces

Exposure to soil biodiversity in urban greenspaces can promote human and wildlife health by impacting their microbiomes. However, the development of soil biodiversity following aboveground restoration is poorly understood, as are the pathways through which people are exposed to this biodiversity. Read more
