Delegation in Complex Conflicts

In the last decade, principal–agent theory has almost completely dominated theorizing on conflict delegation. Although not without criticism, it is fair to say that principal– agent theory has become the dominant framework through which we have come to study external support to non-state armed groups.

Harnessing the genetics of DNA methylation to understand context-specific gene regulation in disease

Genome wide association studies (GWAS) have discovered many genetic associations for traits and diseases. However, most GWAS signals reside in non-coding regions (outside genes), and it is likely that GWAS variants confer their effects through modulating regulatory mechanism. Read more

Inventorising and analysing household level flood risk adaptation

The number of extreme events that can initiate flood risk in the UK is increasing, due to climate change and other factors (e.g., increased population and development in flood prone areas and aging infrastructure). Read more

Elemental Bioimaging

This PhD project will use laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry to quantitatively image the distribution of endogenous elements and proteins via a metal proxy in muscle tissue. Read more

Widening participation in economic evaluations alongside randomised controlled trials: developing resource-use questionnaires for underserved populations

When conducting a trial-based economic evaluation to assess the cost-effectiveness of a new treatment or drug, it is necessary to measure both the benefits (such as quality of life) and the costs associated with delivering the intervention[1]. Read more

Do cholesterol-lowering treatments bring on or make atopic eczema worse? Triangulating evidence from genes and the clinic

A defective lipid matrix in the epidermis contributes to the pathogenesis of atopic eczema. There is concern that pharmacological inhibition of cholesterol production, regulation, or absorption may lead to an increase in the incidence of atopic eczema through disruption of skin barrier function.
