White dwarfs, planetary debris and fundamental physics

White dwarfs are the end products of the life cycles of more than 90% of all stars. This makes them important laboratories for studying stellar evolution and the behaviour of matter at extremes of temperature and density. Read more

Exploring Giant Planet Atmospheres with JWST

Overview. In its first year of operations, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has delivered astonishing new discoveries via infrared observations of the near and far universe. Read more

Modelling cardiac function in healthy hearts and diabetes

Additional Supervisor. Prof Susan Francis, University of Nottingham. There is a global pandemic of type-2 diabetes. Diabetic cardiomyopathy is a well-recognised complication, which manifests with early alterations in left ventricular (LV) structure and function. Read more

Develop novel biomimetic antibiofilm surfaces for medical devices

It is estimated that biofilm infections cost about $94 billion p.a. in the United States healthcare system. Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), in hospitals, are estimated to cause additional health-care costs of £1-2.5 billion in the UK alone. Read more

Enabling Challenging Space Exploration: exploring 244Cm-based radioisotope power systems

·       Radioisotope power systems (RPS) are key for allowing us to explore some of the most challenging locations of our solar system that are not possible or are very challenging using solar array based electrical power supplies. Read more

Astrophysical transient searches with LOFAR

·       The low frequency radio regime is a relatively unexplored parameter space rich in information concerning extreme astrophysical phenomena, particularly those in which magnetic fields play a key role like magnetars (highly magnetic neutron stars) and relativistic jets launched by black holes and compact object mergers. Read more

Characterization of the Space Weather and radiation environment at Mars and the impacts on exploration

The Sun continuously emits magnetic fields, particles and radiation that can interact with a planet’s upper atmosphere and surrounding magnetic environment to produce a myriad of effects, such as radio communications issues, which are typically referred as Space Weather. Read more

The outer bound of planet formation

One of the most fundamental problems in Astronomy is how planets form. The classic paradigm for planet formation was built solely on the basis of the Solar System data of the last century. Read more

Proteins in Alien Environments

What would happen if the liquid enabling life were not water, but a class of molecules with a similar melting range known as 'ionic liquids'? Ionic liquids are simply liquids made of ions usually defined as having melting temperatures below 100°C for which there are millions of possible options. Read more

Help Stop TB - uncovering mycobacterial cell-wall structure and function with machine learning

Tuberculosis still kills more than 1 million people every year. Issues such as multi-drug resistance are exacerbated in tuberculosis by the presence of a difficult-to-permeate bacterial cell layer comprised of extremely long fatty acids, known as mycolic acids. Read more
