sustainable transport PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 59 sustainable transport PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Developing the next generation of pedestrian behaviour models for revival of high streets and sustainable transport [Self-Funded Students Only]

  Research Group: Data and Knowledge Engineering
Modelling the behaviour of pedestrians in city centres is of practical importance not only for sustainable transport (reducing reliance on motor vehicles addresses issues of carbon emissions, congestion and health) but also can help inform planning for town centres in a post-COVID world. Read more

Estimate Cyber Risks for Electric Vehicle Infrastructure [Self-Funded Students Only]

Context. Currently there is an urgent need for a sustainable digital route to zero-carbon road transport by facilitating low-carbon charging of electric vehicles (EVs) to meet the 2030 target to ban all new petrol and diesel cars, and 2050 Net-Zero. Read more

Cyber Incident-Response of Electric Vehicle Infrastructure [Self-Funded Students Only]

Context. Advanced cyber-attacks can massively disrupt the physical systems such electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure. It is not always possible to protect the system against potential threats and the available detection capabilities may not be enough. Read more

Large-scale electrochemical DFT models of a PEM hydrogen fuel cell

Supervisory Team: Chris-Kriton Skylaris (90%) Andrea Russell (10%). Project description. Proton-exchange Membrane (PEM) hydrogen fuel cells are an emerging technology for environmentally sustainable transport and other carbon-neutral energy applications. Read more

Natural Polymer Textiles & Fibres for Sustainable Fashion Sector PhD

This project aims to manufacture sustainable textiles from renewable/natural polymers such as cellulose, chitin, alginate, chitosan which derived from most abundant natural resources like agricultural biomass and sea food waste (crab shell, shrimp shells etc.). Read more

Discovery of new sustainable permanent magnets for electric motors and generators

High-performance permanent magnets are needed for electric motors and generators which are essential for the decarbonisation of transport (land, sea and air) and energy generation (>25% of UK electricity comes from wind-turbines). Read more

Environmental sustainability challenges for the air transport industry

Aviation may be economically and socially sustainable but faces real environmental challenges. Globally, emissions from air travel need to be addressed in line with climate change advice from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Read more
