Structural biology of the Ccr4-Not nuclease complex using electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy and integrative modelling

The ultimate goal in molecular biology is to understand normal physiology and disease processes at atomic resolution. Methods such as x-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy have been phenomenally successful in the past decades and continue to be the workhorses of structural biology. Read more

Pushing the Speed Limits of High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Understanding the structural dynamics of complex molecules is vital to advancing our knowledge of materials, medicine and diseases, yet there are few techniques which can capture motions at high enough speeds or resolution to understand the underlying behaviour. Read more

Photoconduction of wide bandgap semiconductor materials and devices

Wide bandgap semiconductors (bandgap > 3.5 eV) are vital materials for applications in ultraviolet (UV) optoelectronic devices for, e.g., biochemical sensing, water purification, or high-power transistors. Read more

Artificial Intelligence and Optimisation in multi-pass Weld Modelling and Additive Manufacturing of Thick-Section Ferritic Steel Components

Manufacturing of thick-section components for nuclear power plants involves the use of pedigree materials, some of them undergoing metallurgical phase transformations, and welding techniques that are multi-pass arc welds with conventional groove preparation, multipass welds with innovative narrow-groove preparation or innovative beam welds.

Applications of advanced imaging and simulation methods in failure analysis of composite materials

  Research Group: Engineering Materials
Supervisory Team. Ian Sinclair, Mark Spearing, Mark Mavrogordato. Project description. The exploitation of lightweight composite materials represent a vital element in the future efficiency and sustainability of the transportation sector. Read more

Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations. Read more

Advanced Wind Turbine Control Systems

Wind turbine control is necessary to ensure low maintenance costs and efficient performance. The control system also guarantees safe operation, optimizes power output, and ensures long structural life. Read more

Extreme weather behaviour of composite materials

Applications of composites cover a wide range of applications including aerospace, powerhouse, oil refinery etc., within which it is critical to understand the potential for failure of these components. Read more

The mathematics behind the smartness of neural networks - (studied by distance learning)

Intelligence is one of the pillars that allows animals to master their environment. Scientific approaches recently proposed have been capable of simulating networked systems that reproduce similar emergent manifestations of behavior as those observed in the brain. Read more
