We have 44 hazard PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Understanding process interactions that cause wave overtopping for hazard managers

A 1m rise in mean sea level is almost certain this century and it is estimated that 20% of England’s coastal defences could fail under just half this rise (Committee on Climate Change, 2018). Read more

Understanding the compound nature of coastal flood hazard in the UK to improve forecasts and projections

Summary. Coastal flood hazards (e.g., estuarine flooding, coastal overtopping, coastal erosion) mainly occur in response to meteorological events that drive multiple hazards, such as wind, rain, storm surge, high waves, high river flows (Bevacqua et al., 2020). Read more

A Causal Framework for Understanding Natural Hazard Impacts

**SCHOLARSHIP IS AVAILABLE UNTIL FILLED BY A SUITABLE CANDIDATE**. Whenever there is a large flood, bushfire, drought or other climate-related hazard, inevitable questions arise over the causes of the event—for example, whether climate change contributed to or exacerbated the hazard. Read more

Mapping worldwide hotspots of future coastal flood hazard

In the coming decades sea level rise and changes in weather extremes, and potentially tides, will increase the frequency and magnitude of coastal flooding for millions of people living in low-lying coastal areas. Read more

Vulnerability of low-lying transportation networks to coastal flooding

Transportation infrastructure networks such as roads and railways are fundamental to societal functioning, but are especially vulnerable to disruption by natural hazards, including floods. Read more

Phenotypomics: Cellular sensors for chemical and biological hazard identification

The project will utilise high end confocal microscopy, RNA sequencing and proteomics in conjunction with data science and machine learning techniques to determine whether there are characteristic cellular morphological/physical (phenotype) changes in response to different types of biological and chemical hazards and to understand their mechanisms of action. Read more

Modelling and mapping social vulnerability & flood risk in cities in low-income countries

Summary. Operationalization of a global Loss and Damage (L&D) fund was agreed at COP28. However, operationalizing the fund will require the development of robust methods for estimating L&D in the aftermath of climate-related hazard events and predicting future L&D. Read more
