An inclusive and sustainable blue space infrastructure for people with disabilities in Scotland post-Covid-19 pandemic

Evidence has consistently shown that using blue and green spaces has a positive impact on physical and mental health. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the ability to access and use blue and green spaces was positively related to people’s mental wellbeing. Read more

Design for energy transitions in African urban informal settlements

This PhD is linked to a 5-year research project entitled ‘Mainstreaming Gender for Energy Security in Poor Urban Environments’, in short Gender for Energy Security (GENS). Read more

Passive cooling in cities: a multi-scale modelling approach

Passive cooling (e.g. Natural ventilation) is regarded as an important building technology to reduce energy consumption, overheating risk and promote sustainability in the built environment. Read more

Enhancing urban flood resilience with innovative digital design technologies (OP2219)

In England, 3.2 million households are located in areas at risks of urban flooding, with annual damages exceeding £300 million. Due to the extreme environmental conditions, unprecedented downpours across the country in recent years further increases the flooding events on URN. Read more

Advancing the sustainability of cities – Understanding the impacts of urban light pollution on freshwater ecosystems

Supervisory Team.   Dr. Andrew Vowles and Prof. Paul Kemp. Project description. The world has undergone wide-scale urbanisation in recent decades, and the percentage of people living in cities is predicted to grow from 30% in 1950 to 68% by 2050. Read more

Towards better representation of surface-subsurface flow interactions in urban areas particularly during extreme events (OP2256)

Detailed flood models are increasingly used to assess future flood risk in cities and catchments, and to design flood attenuation features including green infrastructure (GI) which reduce the amount of water entering drainage systems via infiltration, transpiration and storage. Read more

PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences: Scaling up Greening the Grey and Eco-engineering Science through partnership with coastal infrastructure asset managers: creating co-benefits for science and operational practice

Do you want to do cutting edge research that is also useful for improving ecosystem services in our coastal cities and towns? Are you interested in using marine ecology and coastal geomorphology science to enhance ecosystem services on coastal engineering assets? If yes, this project will hopefully excite and appeal to you!. Read more
