Net zero housing retrofits - assuring a sustainable low-carbon transition in the domestic sector

The UK has committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. The UK's 29 million houses represent 14% of total emissions (CCC, 2019), with nearly 90% of these built more than 20 years ago before stricter energy efficiency standards came into force (Ince & Marvin, 2019). Read more

Looking to the future: Monitoring Indoor Air Quality in buildings

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
The overall objective is to generate and test out a system to monitor building indoor air quality (IAQ) to avoid the difficult situation the world has suffered with the worldwide pandemic. Read more

PhDs in Natural and Built Environment

Our research seeks to understand the impact of social, environmental, and economic changes on society, drawing on this understanding to contribute to the better design and planning of spaces and places. Read more

Development of innovative low carbon construction materials

One of the major needs for achieving the decarbonisation targets in the construction industry is the development of innovative low-carbon construction materials for the development of future infrastructure or for the repair of existing deteriorated ones. Read more

Next-Generation Low-Carbon Cement Wasteforms for Safe Disposal of Radioactive Waste

In the UK, over 150,000m3 of radioactive waste (enough to fill 60 Olympic size swimming pools) has been produced to date. Most of this radioactive waste needs conditioning by encapsulating it in cement to prevent release to the biosphere. Read more

Magnox sludge immobilisation in bespoke acid-based geopolymers

This research project will be conducted at the University of Leeds, and the supervisory team comprises early career researchers as well as a senior academic, internationally recognised for their expertise in the design, advanced characterisation and performance assessment of cementitious materials for both nuclear wastes disposal and infrastructure applications.

Modelling blood motion in deformable vessels

This project aims to introduce a novel approach in studying blood flow in deformable vessels by simultaneously considering both the fluid (blood) and the structure (vessel) through analytical and numerical approaches. Read more

On Analysis and Design of Submerged Wave Energy Devices

We invite applications for a Ph.D. position in Marine Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering at the University of Dundee, Scotland. The project aims in analyzing new generation of wave energy devices that are fully submerged, namely an Oscillating Submerged Disc, and a Wave Carpet. Read more

Micro-Bio-Mechanical Modelling of root growth in soils

The extent and the way roots grow in the ground is known to have a fundamental impact on the growth of crop plants as well as on the resistance to lodging induced by storms. Read more
