  Evolutionary mapping of algorithms to arrays of processors
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Dr G Tempesti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Network-on-Chip (NoC) paradigm is a subject of intense research in both the academic and the industrial worlds. Based on the parallel execution of program threads on many relatively simple processing elements, this approach suffers however from a crucial weakness.
  Exploitation of Full-Duplex Capability in Underwater Acoustic Communication Networks at the Medium Access Control Layer
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr P D Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Full-duplex has the potential to double the capacity of point-to-point communication links, but these benefits can only be fully realised in communication networks through development of a suitable medium access control layer.
  Game theory based secure transmission techniques for physical layer security
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr K Cumanan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, physical layer based secrecy communication has received considerable attention due to its suitability for dynamic network configurations and distributed processing techniques.
  Heusler alloy films for nano-spintronic devices
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Prof A Hirohata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heusler-alloy films are theoretically predicted to show 100% spin polarisation and is therefore ideal to be used in spintronic devices [1],[2].
  Hybrid description methods for human faces
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof J A Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group has pioneered the application of conditional probability density estimation to describing human faces. Our methods allow a system to estimate the age, sex, race and facial expression of people in a real-time video sequence.
  Hybrid molecular electronic devices: developing a hybrid molecular-electronic technology to store and process information
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Dr S D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interest in biomolecules as materials for computation stems originally from the massively-parallel information processing that can be achieved using combinatorial molecules.
  Immunity of circuits and systems to Electromagnetic Interference
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr J Dawson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop methods of characterising the immunity of components and predicting the immunity of electronic systems to electromagnetic interference.
  Implementation of soft-input, soft-output detectors and decoders using FPGA
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof A Burr
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many emerging and current wireless communication standards, such as LTE and 5G New Radio, use iteratively-decoded error correcting codes, such as turbo-codes and LDPC, based on soft-input, soft-output (SISO) component decoders.
  Improvements in headphone based 3-D audio using adaptive binaural signal processing and robust head-tracking
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Design of immersive binaural surround systems requires an understanding of the perceptual cues for sound source localisation. Any source at a given angle of incidence to the head will create subtle time and level difference cues at the ears and is subject to spectral shaping due to the pinnae.
  Influence of listener movement on tonality and spatial quality in adaptive immersive surround sound systems
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst there is a significant body of work that focuses on the spatial quality and tonality of immersive surround sound systems for a sweet spot position, these qualities under a dynamic listening scenario (i.e.
