Combining embedded sensor technology and machine learning to quantify swimmers’ performance in a normal training environment

Supervisory Team.   Dr Joseph Banks, Prof Dominic Hudson, Dr Adam Sobey, Prof Stephen Beeby. Project description. Coaching feedback systems in competitive swimming are limited by the quality of the data available, the time taken to set up equipment and post process data. Read more

Investigating the utility of exercise to enhance the yield of haemopoietic stem and progenitor cells in peripheral blood

Haemopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPC’s) are donated by approximately 2000 healthy individuals for patients with a variety of blood cancers and genetic disorders in the UK every year, however; there are barriers that limit this process working optimally. Read more

Understanding eye-hand coordination in object interception - a computational modelling approach

This PhD project with Dr Yeo will focus on understanding how we perform interception. Interceptive movements--such as catching a gently thrown ball, quickly grabbing a tilting cup to avoid spilling or even just handshaking someone--feel like trivial everyday tasks for us that seemingly look too simple to study.
