Polar liquid crystal nematic phases

The nematic phase (N) is the least ordered liquid crystal phase, and in which the long axes of the rod-like molecules are more or less aligned in the same direction, known as the director, whereas their centres of mass are randomly distributed. Read more

Developing a tuneable ferroelectric nematic materials platform

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Nematic liquid crystals are ubiquitous in our lives; we encounter them constantly thanks to their widespread use in display technology. Read more

Investigating solar protection during plant growth

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Acquire diverse skills set centred on understanding of the ‘Biophysics of Life’ by working with Life Scientists and Chemists at Warwick University. Read more

Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting.

Atmospheric transport and orographic rainfall of microplastics

Microplastics are transported in the natural environment by a wide range of processes and as a consequence are found in all environments, from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans, in urban environments and polar ice caps. Read more

Development of DNA repair therapeutics to overcome cancer resistance to chemotherapy

  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
Reduced oxygen supply (hypoxia) is a common feature of cells distant to blood vessels in most solid cancers. It reduces the effectiveness of chemotherapy and promotes cancer aggressiveness and spread. Read more

Tracking Greenland’s Elusive Glaciers from Space

Project Description. This project offers the exciting opportunity to advance understanding of the contribution of Greenlandic glaciers to global sea-level rise. Read more

Understanding gene regulation by HDAC1 complexes in development and cancer

Packaging DNA into nucleosomes helps protect the long fragile genomes of eukaryotic species. However, in doing so it becomes an ever-present physical barrier to the machinery required for its replication, repair and transcription. Read more

Microbial activity on glaciers and ice sheets: an integrated modelling and empirical approach.

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
Glaciers and ice sheets are important microbe-dominated ecosystems, that are undergoing rapid changes due to climate change. Supraglacial (glacier surface) ecosystems contain organisms from all three domains of life, which drive carbon and nutrient cycling, and cause ice darkening, thus enhancing ice mass loss. Read more

PhD in snow microphysics

The formation and evolution of ice particles (snowflakes) in clouds is an important problem in atmospheric physics. Ice particles in clouds influence the radiation budget of the earth. Read more
