This project will explore the challenges encountered during the initiating phases of major projects. This represents a significant practical and conceptual challenge and is a core feature of the UK Cabinet Office Infrastructure and Projects Authority Project X initiative (Theme B, led by Professor Lewis).
Effective collaboration among design and construction teams is an ongoing challenge in modern building construction due primarily to the increasingly complex and highly-specialised range of inputs required from architects, engineers, specialist manufacturers and installers.

Reference Number. KKC-2018-PhD-1. Project Summary. Advanced two-dimensional materials including MoS2, MoSe2, and h-BCN has recently gain much importance in material and photonics research owing to their capabilities of tuning their electronic bandgap hence optical absorption spectra.
Reference Number. KKC-2018-PhD-2. Project Summary. This project will focus on the design and implementation of advanced optical fibre-based sensors for environmental monitoring applications such as quality of fresh water and air.
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Business and Law, and will be supervised by Dr Daniel Nunan and Dr Giampaolo Viglia.
