Molten salt – metal interactions and their influence on thermomechanical properties of metals used in next generation molten salt energy systems

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Materials are critical for delivering low-carbon electricity from renewable and low carbon power that includes Solar and nuclear thermal energies; technologies that underpin the UK’s commitment to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Read more

Employing molecular virology to investigate hepatitis E virus replication

Hepatitis E virus (HEV), is a major causative agent of acute, severe hepatitis. The infection can also be chronic, particular in immunocompromised people, and fatal in pregnant women or those with existing liver diseases. Read more

Exponential integrators

  Research Group: School of Mathematics
A common procedure for the numerical solution of partial differential equations is the method of lines, which results in a large system of ordinary differential equations. Read more

Particle methods for plasma physics

  Research Group: School of Mathematics
A plasma is an ionized gas with positively and negatively charged particles (ions and electrons). One promising method of generating electricity with nuclear fusion uses tokamak reactors filled with an extremely hot plasma, similar to what happens inside the Sun. Read more

The Contribution of Lattice Vibrations to Switchable Spin-Crossover Crystals

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Spin-crossover is a high-spin-to-low-spin transition at a transition metal centre, induced by temperature or pressure. It is common in iron chemistry, but also occurs in some compounds of other common metals. Read more

Hybrid Soft and Continuum Robots for Medical Applications

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Soft. and. continuum. robots (i.e. without discrete links) offer the advantage of high flexibility and safer interaction with respect to their rigid robotic counterparts. Read more

How GABA neurones in the DVC control glucose metabolism

The Dorsal Vagal Complex (DVC) of the brain is an important regulator of glucose metabolism and food intake. The Nucleus of the Solitary Tract (NTS) in the DVC senses insulin and triggers a neuronal relay to decrease hepatic glucose production (HPG) in rodents. Read more

Low-carbon and reusable structural systems for sustainable infrastructures

  Research Group: School of Civil Engineering
This PhD project will focus on the development of eco-friendly and easy-to-reuse structural systems for the next generation infrastructures in a circular economy. Read more

Magnetic skyrmions in chiral multilayers

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
In this project we will study magnetic skyrmions, nanoscale swirls of spins that possess a special topology. They appear in properly designed magnetic multilayers at room temperature and are candidates for next-generation data storage technology. Read more
