Enabling resilience in digital twins PhD

This PhD is within the context of digital twins for complex assets such as aero-engines, and turbines. Digital twins are digital representations of an asset and process, and aim to provide a comprehensive and accurate representation. Read more

Personalised content exploration engine to support self-management of multiple chronic conditions

  Research Group: Applied Computing
The self-management model in health aims to empower a person to be more active participant in his or her own care [1]. Involving patients actively in their own care is critical for controlling disease management costs associated with monitoring and assessment. Read more

Culturally Competent Health Behaviour Change Interventions: Can we adapt the MAP approach to meet the needs of BAME communities?

Applications are invited for a self-funded PhD project to investigate feasibility and outcomes related to the development and application of a culturally adapted health behaviour change approach to improve health outcomes for people with long-term health conditions. Read more

Paranoia and trust - examining the role of automatic, implicit processes in mistrust and paranoid thinking

Abstract. Paranoid delusions are the most common symptom of psychosis but less severe forms of paranoid ideation and mistrust are common in everyday life and lie on a continuum with the rarer clinical forms (Elahi, Perez Algorta, Varese, McIntyre, & Bentall, 2017). Read more

Control of protein self assembly by biological ions

In addition to being an energy source in biological reactions, recent discoveries suggest adenosine triphosphate (ATP) also plays a critical role in maintaining cell stability and preventing deleterious cellular processes through modulating biomacromolecular self assembly. Read more

Perceptual stability in Virtual Reality across the adult lifespan

When we move, stationary parts of the world around us move on the retina. Of course, usually we correctly interpret this retinal motion as due to our own movement and not movement of the surrounding environment. Read more

Explainable machine learning for securing Internet of Things (IoT) [Self-Funded Students Only]

  Research Group: Complex Systems
Internet of Things (IoT) consists of things, services, and networks, it connects interrelated smart devices, objects, animals or people to transfer data over a network to serve people better. Read more

Learning concept evolution in data streams [Self-Funded Students Only]

  Research Group: Complex Systems
In applications with concept evolution, new concepts emerge in data stream and existing/known concepts disappear over time, e.g., new types of attack in a computer network and new topics of interest in social medial data stream. Read more

Testing Robotics and Autonomous Systems Using Search-based Techniques

  Research Group: Applied Computing
Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) are becoming indispensable for human productivity and it is estimated that there will be a £13 billion global market for RAS by 2025. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Nutrient-Mediated Bacterial Delivery of ‘Dual Warhead’ Antimicrobials

Microbial resistance to antibiotics has been a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market. Read more

Self-funded BMS project: Resurrecting ancestral human sugars: a novel approach to cancer immunotherapy

Human cell surfaces are coated in a thick layer of sticky sugars [Glycocalyx]. Uniquely, cancer cells are covered with an excess of a sialic acid sugar (Neu5Ac), acting as ‘camouflage’ to avoid the immune system. Read more
