EPSRC iCASE PhD Studentship: AI on the edge: Real-time sea level and wave field calculations on the Mayflower Autonomous Ship

Overview. This project involves the optimisation of the processing and analysis of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) data using artificial intelligence (AI) techniques to determine accurate measurements of the sea surface from the Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS: . Read more

Safe and efficient ship-board storage of Hydrogen

Supervisory Team.   Dominic Hudson, Wendell Bailey. Project description. In response to the climate crisis and to tackle global warming through reducing emissions, we must decarbonise the world’s energy. Read more

Ship machinery intelligent diagnostics and maintenance by integrating digital twins and Mixed Reality tools

This PhD project aims at developing a novel methodology and associated tools to address the intelligent diagnostics and cost-effective maintenance of critical ship machinery systems by integrating digital twins and Virtual/Mixed Reality tools. Read more

Motion Planning in Autonomous Robots

The project will focus primarily on Autonomous Robots. The general research theme involves theoretical and experimental study of Autonomous Vehicles with emphasis on advanced motion control for unmanned vehicles. Read more

PhD Studentship: Rapid characterisation and modelling of marine biofilm deformation for estimating biofouling frictional drag

Overview. Maritime transport emits around 940 million tonnes of CO2 annually. Ships are often fouled by marine biofilms, resulting in increased frictional drag and fuel penalties that can range from minor to very costly, and which contribute significantly to global greenhouse gas emissions.

Modelling of liquid Hydrogen dispersion in the maritime environment

Supervisory Team.   Dominic Hudson, Ed Richardson, Stephen Turnock. Project description. In response to the climate crisis and to tackle global warming through reducing emissions, we must decarbonise the world’s energy. Read more

Laser-based remote sensing of subsurface water properties

Remote sensing of ocean and coastal waters is of high importance to the defence and environmental science sectors. The overarching goal of this project is to develop laser-based methods based on Raman and/or fluorescence spectroscopy and transition them to the field. Read more

Delivering Sustainable Energy Solutions to Ports

Ports are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions as they commonly move up to 10,000 containers a day from ship to road or rail transport and correspondingly in the reverse direction from land transport onto ships. Read more

Dietary intervention and efficacy in improving lipoedema symptoms among patients in the UK

About the Project. An ambitious and enthusiastic candidate is invited for one full-time PhD (self-funded or through an external fellow-ship application), starting any time between September 2021 and September 2022 (several intake times possible in this period). Read more

Computational analysis of the flow through aerofoil cascades

One of the major global concerns is the environmental pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, and there is a growing awareness of the impact of emission from the shipping industry using fossil fuel as a power source. Read more
