Data-Driven Robust Optimization for Installation of Offshore Windfarms

Overview. This project focuses on the installation process of wind turbines in offshore wind farms. The researcher is expected to develop optimization models and algorithms to identify the optimal configuration of vessel schedules to minimise installation duration and cost. Read more

Reducing Carbon Emissions in Shipping: An Agent-Based Approach

Supervisory Team.   Enrico Gerding, Sarvapali Ramchurn, Dominic Hudson. Project description. This truly interdisciplinary project on carbon emission reduction combines techniques from artificial intelligence, game theory, transportation, shipping and optimisation. Read more

Data driven modelling of supply chain constraints in maritime transport

Supervisory Team.   Adam Sobey (CMEE), Markus Brede (ECS) and Amy Parkes (Industry). Project description. Recent incidents, such as the blocking of the Suez Canal or lack of workers at Chinese ports due to COVID, demonstrate the importance of maritime trade. Read more

Efficiency and practicalities of response-adaptive randomisation adaptive design in multi-arm randomised trials

There is an increasing demand to evaluate the benefits and safety of new treatments as quickly as possible with resources no more than necessary using a minimum number of research patients as possible. Read more

Safety and Reliability Analysis of Cyber-Physical Systems

Modern cyber-physical systems such as the autonomous vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, distributed and cloud-controlled robotics, telehealth systems, water distribution network, and smart energy grids are made more sophisticated and fault-tolerant by including new functionality and capabilities into them.
