An investigation into droplet splashing and levitation phenomena in multiphase systems

PROJECT SUMMARY.  . With this project, we propose an investigation into a variety of dynamics and effects produced by the interaction of a droplet or a group of droplets with a solid or liquid surface. Read more

Holsworth Biomedical Microscopy Research Scholarship

A fully-funded PhD stipend is available in Dr Donna Whelan's lab at La Trobe University, Bendigo, Australia. Background. The scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding applicant who is keen to undertake interdisciplinary biomedical research in a collaborative and innovative laboratory. Read more

Elucidating the Environmental Impact of Nanoplastics (NP) through a Mechanistic Understanding of NP-induced Cell Membrane Damage

Plastic pollution is one of the main environmental problems of our time. Due to mismanagement or inadequate recycling practices, up to 300 million tons of plastic end up annually in landfills or are discharged into ecosystems, posing potential threats to aquatic and terrestrial life. Read more

Feasibility study of heavy metal mining from subsurface reservoirs for renewable energy storage

Heavy metal demand is expected to increase as more of the world turns to electric vehicles and renewable energy storage systems. However, current supply of heavy metals is not sufficient to meet energy transition targets over the next decade due to limited available resources. Read more

Smart Polymer nAnoCompositEs (SPACE)

  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
Polymer nanocomposites (PNCs) are hybrid materials consisting of a polymeric matrix incorporating nanoparticles (NPs). They are paving the path for next-generation smart nanomaterials in energy efficiency and storage, environmental remediation, textile, food and biomedical applications. Read more

Using the Ionic Liquid Ion Sources for Focused Ion Beam applications: Investigating the fundamentals

  Research Group: Astronautics
Supervisory Team:  Dr Charlie Ryan, Dr Oleg Buchnev (ORC). Project description. Gallium Liquid Metal Ion Sources (LMIS) are the standard choice for ion beam material etching, facilitating ion beam lithography as the go-to technique for in situ microfabrication. Read more

Wrapping virus-like particles in polymer films using protein-carbohydrate interactions

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Polymer films are widely used as barriers to protect objects from their environments or improve their performance.? What if tiny nano- or micron-sized objects could also be wrapped in thin layers of polymer films? Would they also gain benefits from their inclusion in wrappers in the same ways as macroscopic objects do? These questions lead to tantalising possibilities. Read more

Functional Self-Cleaning Composites

Inspired by the exceptional self-cleaning properties in nature such as the Lotus leaves and the pitcher plants, superhydrophobic and omniphobic surfaces are developed for many applications such as anti-corrosion, anti-icing and anti-bacterial. Read more

Bioinspired materials: strong and self-healing polymer materials

Biomaterials, for example bone and skin have a remarkable capacity to self-heal. These natural materials are hydrogels, however synthetic hydrogels cannot perform the same task as they are inherently weak and not usually self-healing. Read more

Micro-manufacturing of surface textures for enhanced electrosurgery

3 years full time 1st April 2021, 1st July 2021 or 1st October 2021. Electrosurgery is a medical procedure that uses an alternating and high frequency current (200 kHz-3.3 MHz) to either cut and/or coagulate tissues and achieve haemostasis. Read more
