  Dr W Xu
Application Deadline: 30 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inadequate pollination is a major reason for poor and erratic avocado yields. The honey bee serves as the principle avocado pollinator, but the avocado bloom is not attractive to them.
  Coffee waste metabolism by Extremophiles for the Bioethanol production (Ref: SF20/APP/MUNOZ)
  Dr J Munoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Due to an increasing demand of fossil fuels, the search for alternative bioenergy has gained much attention from the scientific community and the general population.

The term “dietary fibre” refers to a spectrum of indigestible carbohydrates, mainly of plant origin that have been linked to a range of health benefits.
  Estimation of food portion sizes through smartphone images (Ref: SF20/APP/BROWNLEE1)
  Dr I Brownlee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate and precise assessment of dietary intake is crucial to consideration of population-to individual-level patterns of food consumption with clear links to consequent impacts on long-term health and national/global food requirements.
  Evaluating appropriate routes of personalising dietary advice (Ref: SF20/APP/BROWNLEE3)
  Dr I Brownlee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type
