PhD saved successfully

Computational modelling of mineral-organic binding in soil

Soils contain large amounts of organic matter (also called “soil organic carbon”). there is three times as much carbon stored in soil than in the atmosphere as CO. Read more

Kinetics and mechanisms of mineral waste carbonation

Self funded 3.5 year PhD in Engineering. Project Summary. Minerals containing earth alkalis are feasible for carbonation or enhanced weathering as an effective CO2 sequestration and storage method. Read more

Feasibility study of mineral mining from subsurface reservoirs for renewable energy storage

Critical minerals such as alkali metals play an important role in batteries and fuel cells. Their demand is expected to increase as more of the world turns to electric vehicles and renewable energy storage systems. Read more

Fluid-rock interaction and its influence on rock mechanical properties

Rock and fluid interactions alternate the fluid flow and mechanical properties of porous material and thus play a significant role in many aspects of subsurface engineering application, for example CO2 geological storage and enhanced hydrocarbon recovery. Read more

Use of Fungi as a Means of Producing Concrete-Like Construction Materials

Concrete is one of the World’s most ubiquitous materials. It has achieved this through its versatility, durability and low cost. However, the manufacture of a key ingredient - Portland cement – contributes 4% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Read more

Disentangling land use and climatic roles in sediment delivery to upland British lakes

Changes to agricultural land use practices and climate represent serious challenges to the future management of rural landscapes, as humans have dramatically altered the European landscape over thousands of years. Read more

Where has all of the carbon gone? Understanding the molecular mechanisms of long-term soil carbon capture

Soils, while unglamorous, form the basis of the terrestrial biosphere and are ultimately the source of the majority of the food that we eat, yet fundamental aspects of how soils form and how they store carbon are poorly understood. Read more

Control of Parathyroid Hormone Secretion

The regulation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion is of fundamental importance for calcium homeostasis and in mineral conditions affecting bone and the kidneys. Read more

EcoGuardian: Transforming Urban Sustainability with AI-Driven Air Quality Solutions

This project aims to construct an autonomous computer system (purposeful AI) that continuously collects and analyses datasets from various sources, to support fast-paced data-driven decision-making when dealing with recent or emerging crises. Read more

Development of robotic printable long-life mortar system

Modern Methods of Construction has revolutionised the masonry based construction industry. Flat pack structural forms are manufactured in factory, transported to site and lifted in place, to finish medium to high rise buildings within weeks. Read more

Sustainable recycling of end-of-life electric vehicle batteries

Project: The age of the electric car is all but upon us. Billions of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are reaching their lifetime along with the widespread application of electric vehicles. Read more

Use of Recovered Toner Powder to Enhance Durability, Engineering and Sustainability Performance of Structural Concrete Elements

The working life of reinforced/prestressed concrete elements is often determined by serviceability limit state which is governed by the movement of harmful moisture into the structure and propagating/initiating corrosion of steel reinforcement. Read more

PhD candidate (f_m_x) in the project “Densities, structures and refractive indices of carbonate glasses at high pressure“

The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam – GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national centre for geosphere research. As a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres we are part of the largest scientific organization in Germany. Read more
