  ‘Vowel matching’ in chorus singing
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr H Daffern
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modifying vowels is a common technique employed by singers when singing as a group to maximise the blended quality of the sound. Whilst there is natural variation of vowels between speakers and singers, a conscious effort is made to match the quality of vowels between singers.
  5G Wireless Communications from High Altitude Platform Networks
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Grace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Taking into account the significant, ongoing high altitude platform projects by Google and Facebook, this project will examine how a network of high altitude platforms can be used to deliver 5G wireless communications.
  AI and Machine Learning for the diagnosis and monitoring of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Prof S Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department has long-standing research collaborations with hospitals and medical centres worldwide developing new approaches to the diagnosis and monitoring of neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
  Application of Satellite Medium Access Control Principles to Underwater Acoustic Communication Networks
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr P D Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acoustic waves are widely accepted as the most suitable means of communicating underwater, since radio waves suffer from severe attenuation through water.
  Applied computational electromagnetics for transport, medical, and electronic systems
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr J Dawson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the Applied electromagnetics and devices laboratory of the Communication Technologies research group we are working on solving problems related to the prevention and control of electromagnetic interference.
  Array Antenna Design Optimisation for 5G / 6G Mobile Communication Systems
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr S J Porter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Large array antennas are of great interest for 5G / 6G mobile communication systems.
  Atomic level structure and magnetic properties of MRAM
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Prof Y Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As a new generation solid-state memory technology, the Magnetic Radom Access Memory (MRAM) is one of the most promising technologies for data storage, which storages data as a spin state rather than electrical charge.
  Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent developments in low cost VR displays have led to a resurgence of research into binaural 3-D audio. Whilst a good 3-D audio experience can be given using the state of the art technologies, there are still many problems to be solved.
  Augmented a shared environment to support creativity
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof J A Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University’s "immersive demonstration space" provides surround video and sound in a meeting-room environment. This research project is to determine how best to enhance and use the space to support collaborative design and creativity.
  Auralisation in digital heritage
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphical virtualization techniques have been used for some time in the fields of archaeology, history, and heritage, offering better understanding and experience of past environments while also facilitating more effective user interaction.
  Automatic face description in computational photography and videography
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof J A Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group has recently filed a patent on a method for estimating the attributes of faces detected in pictures. These attributes include the location and orientation and facial "landmarks", such as the eyes, nose tip and chin tip, along with the age, sex, race and facial expression of the person.
  Autonomous cooperation of bio-inspired adaptable lightweight mobile robots
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Dr M A Post, Prof A M Tyrrell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In challenging planetary environments such as Mars, a diverse range of terrains must be traversed to deliver sensing instruments and achieve scientific goals.
  Body composition measurements in a reverberation chamber
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr M P Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Measurement of the components that make up the human body has important medical applications in kidney and heart diseases, and in nutritional studies.
  Cognition Assisted 5G Small Cell Networks
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Grace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how machine learning based artificial intelligence strategies can be used to control both the radio resources and network topology in small cell 5G networks, likely to be used in dense urban areas, when traffic is dominated by ultra-high definition video from vehicular users.
  Cognition Strategies for Secure Cloud Radio Access Networks
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Grace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how artificial intelligence can be used in future cloud based radio access networks. Such networks will be typical in future 5G and beyond 5G deployments, where due to cost reasons, radio and processing functions will be more centralised.
