Singular Integral Operators in Potential Theory

In this project we will attack a long-standing conjecture in potential theory, due to Carlos Kenig in 1994, regarding the so-called "double-layer potential operator" K on a closed curve C in the plane. Read more

The impact of coffee on cardiometabolic disease risk

Observational data suggests that consuming 3-5 cups of coffee/day is protective against cardiometabolic diseases (i.e. cardiovascular diseases; CVDs and type 2 diabetes; T2D), but mechanisms of action are not clear. Read more

The earliest occupation of the Midlands: missing humans, or missing the artefacts?

The very earliest occupations of Britain, dating back hundreds of thousands of years, are best represented by the stone artefacts found on and within surviving fragments of ‘Ice Age’ landscapes. Read more

In the last decade, principal–agent theory has almost completely dominated theorizing on conflict delegation. Although not without criticism, it is fair to say that principal– agent theory has become the dominant framework through which we have come to study external support to non-state armed groups.

The relationship between vegetation and morphology in saltmarsh restoration schemes

Managed realignment, where coastal flood defences are breached or lowered to introduce tidal inundation to the coastal hinterland, is becoming an increasingly popular approach to coastal management to restore saltmarsh environments and compensate for habitat and ecosystem service loss elsewhere.

Perceptions of Women in Politics

Worldwide, more women than ever before participate in politics, be it as candidates, Members of Parliament, cabinet members or - in some countries - heads of state. Read more

The role of grazing in ecosystem service delivery in saltmarsh restoration schemes

Managed realignment, where coastal flood defences are breached or lowered to introduce tidal inundation to the coastal hinterland, is becoming an increasingly popular approach to coastal management to restore saltmarsh environments and compensate for habitat and ecosystem service loss elsewhere.

Ancient woodlands and development-related threats: How can we develop effective, targeted mitigation to protect these valuable ‘Keepers of Time’?

Ancient woodlands provide some of Great Britain’s most biodiverse and culturally significant habitats. Current planning policy aims to protect these ‘irreplaceable’ habitats from the direct and indirect impacts of nearby development. Read more
