  A combined framework of machine learning and full waveform inversion for electromagnetic sensing of infrastructure (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/WARREN)
  Dr C Warren
Applications accepted all year round
Electromagnetic sensing systems, such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), are critical tools to allow us to evaluate the condition of surface and sub-surface infrastructure.
  A soft robotic technology by controllably morphing gel structures (Advert Reference: RDFC18/EE/MCE/XU)
  Dr B Xu
Application Deadline: 9 June 2019
This project includes the design and fabrication of a soft robotic technology by using the stimuli-responsive hydrogel materials and structural thin shell design, which enable instability morphology to be spatially distributed and generated at the surface of gel structure.
  Achieving an optimal trade-off between power system stability/hosting capacity and energy peak by implementing demand side management in home microgrids (H-MG)s in the neighbourhood systems (Advert Reference: SF18/MPEE/MARZBAND)
  Dr M Marzband
Applications accepted all year round
I am recruiting some PhD students for a project regarding the optimal planning and operation of so many H-MGs in the neighbourhood system (with up to a few thousand customers) with the aim of hosting capacity and voltage stability improvement in the network.
  Analysing project-level planning efficiency and delivery time performance within the UK construction sector (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/GLEDSON)
  Dr B Gledson
Applications accepted all year round
In the construction sector an underperformance of on-site project delivery efforts, particularly regarding ‘productivity’ and ’predictability’ remains a principle concern.
  Antimicrobial behaviour of novel alloyed steels (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/GONZALEZ SANCHEZ)
  Dr S Gonzalez Sanchez
Applications accepted all year round
In the European Union 8 to 12 % of the inhabitants risk of nosocomial infections. Hospital touch surfaces such as bed rails and handles can be a reservoir of pathogens that cause infections resulting not only in substantial economic losses but even in patient death.
  Automatic micro and mixed emotion recognition system for Human-robot interaction (Advert Reference: SF18/CIS/MISTRY)
  Dr K Mistry
Applications accepted all year round
Facial expression is one of the most effective means for human beings to indicate emotions, feelings and intentions. Literature shows that facial expression contributed to about 55% effect of overall emotion expression during social interactions.
  Conditional monitoring and fault prognosis for renewable energy systems (Advert Reference: SF18/MPEE/GAO)
  Dr D Gao
Applications accepted all year round
Renewable energy has contributed more and more proportions of electricity generations in the UK, Europe and around the world. Renewable energy equipments/systems such as wind turbines, photovoltaics and so forth would be subjected to faults or malfunctions due to the age or unexpected events.
  Creating a Sensor Toolkit using Embroidered Electronics (Advert Reference: SF18/MPEE/DODD)
  Dr L Dodd, Prof D Wood
Applications accepted all year round
Embroidered electronic sensors have received a great deal of interest in recent years. Sensors are a mainstay of modern society but are often large, heavy and bulky.
  Decision Support for Domestic Energy Retrofitting in Housing (Advert Reference: SF18-3/ABE/ALWAN)
  Dr Z Alwan
Applications accepted all year round
Today, Retrofitting of existing housing to meet stringent thermal comfort and sustainability targets has become high on the agenda both in the developed and developing world.
  Design-Led Building Performance for Primary Schools (Advert Reference: SF18-2/ABE/ALWAN)
  Dr Z Alwan
Applications accepted all year round
Green building design has been a main driver for many new commercial projects in recent years and schools have been no exception, many requiring green benchmarking certification such as LEED or BREEAM.
