Tailoring plasma chemistry of cold atmospheric-pressure plasmas

Plasma technologies already form a key part of many of today’s multi-billion pound industries such as the nanoscale fabrication of microprocessors, energy efficient lighting, production of solar cells and the deposition of advanced functional coatings. Read more

Real-time Networked based Musical Interaction in virtual immersive environments

There is a high demand for making and consuming live music over networked based systems. Virtual recording studios, performance venues and rehearsal spaces are within our technological grasp, bridging gaming technologies, low latency networking and immersive audio strategies. Read more

Semantic random-access technology for future wireless ecosystems

This PhD project will research into new technical innovations that can embrace today’s machine learning advances into a process of designing and managing wireless communications for emergent AI agents, where they will mimic human ability to effectively learn, fine-tune and adapt skills of conveying semantic information. Read more

Virtual acoustic simulation for auralisation

Auralisation is the audio equivalent of visualisation – the accurate rendering of an acoustic environment such that the listener perceives the result as being natural or real. Read more

Toward a drone-based electroluminescence inspection for photovoltaic (PV) installations

Recent advancements and cost reductions in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)technology have led to the adoption of UAVs equipped with thermal cameras to inspect solar photovoltaic (PV) installations. Read more

Soundscape Research: Analysis, Auralisation, and Assessment

The simulation of sounds in our natural environment is important for us be able to more reliably model and analyse the acoustic results of small or large-scale, human interventions, such as a newly proposed road, airport or rail project. Read more

Peer-sourcing AI agents for future network autonomy

All connected services across emergent edge-computing devices will run directly or indirectly from the future 6G wireless ecosystems (e.g., unmanned automotive/ship, digital twins, extended reality, etc.) In 2025, the 5G will cover more than 50% of total wireless media revenue and this grows up to about 80% in 2028. Read more

Optimisation surface characterisation

Many projects in Engineering and Computer Science involve global multivariate optimisation. Classical methods include genetic algorithms, simulated annealing and particle filters. Read more

Machine Learning for classifying and characterising living cell cultures

In collaboration with the Department of Biology at the University of York and the Department of Computer Science at the University of Sheffield, programmable agent-based computational models have been developed to help interpret how populations of cells arise and repair from individual cell:cell interactions. Read more

Liquid Transistors: Real-time Probabilistic Computing with Non-linear Analogue Components

"Perfection has always been expensive". An area where this is certainly true, and is rapidly becoming more so, is electronic systems design where the goal is to perform useful, stable computation. Read more

Interactive spatial audio rendering

Impulse response capture of acoustic spaces for convolution-based reverb is a common application in many aspects of audio and music technology practice, and there are standardised approaches that enable high quality immersive virtual acoustic environments to be created based on real-world data. Read more

Intelligent microsystems – Micro-sensors with in-sensor computing capabilities

In the era of Internet-of-Things (IoT), there will be an astronomical amount of data generated from numerous sensors worldwide. It is extremely insecure, power-inefficient, and time-consuming to transfer all the data between sensor nodes and computing units frequently. Read more
