Machine learning and AI for healthy building design

Building design and performance has a vital impact on the occupants’ productivity, health and wellbeing, and therefore directly linked to the economic cost of the organizations and companies. Read more

Controlling airborne infectious disease transmission in indoor environment

Infectious disease pandemics are brutal killers in human history. The recent COVID-19 outbreak in China has killed over 2.4K people globally, and more than 78K people are infected across 28 countries (As of 22th Feb 2020). Read more

Climate-resilient architectural and building design: learning from the past

Our climate is changing, and extreme events are becoming more frequent. For example, the UK Climate Projections found that in the UK we will see hotter drier summers and wetter windier winters, and heatwave days in the UK become more frequent and last longer. Read more

Understanding and control of electric communication in bacteria colonies, using machine learning

Although initial discussions regarding bioelectricity and its role in the fundamental understanding of various cellular behaviours took place in the 1970s, the bioelectrical view of cells as a more general concept has remained limited to the fringes of biological research for five decades. Read more

Interbrain dynamical functions for anticipating synchronisation under mutual interactions

How can we communicate with other members of society and synchronise our motion in real-time? Crucial to a sense of communication is the ability to entrain perceptually with other members of society, i.e., to be able to follow and to lead, while maintaining individual autonomy. Read more

Development of the collaborative robot – human-robot collaboration

Robots work effectively in factories. For example, in car factories, huge robotic arms pick up car parts and join them to the skeleton of the car, working at less than millimetre and millisecond precision. Read more

Deriving functional neurons from hIPSCs

Neuronal networks grown on petri dishes encode information as electrical activity. This activity is dictated by their underlying structural and functional connectivity. Read more

Passive cooling in cities: a multi-scale modelling approach

Passive cooling (e.g. Natural ventilation) is regarded as an important building technology to reduce energy consumption, overheating risk and promote sustainability in the built environment. Read more

Next generation wearable healthcare sensors

The aim of this project is to research and develop the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) connected wearable sensor technologies for applications in healthcare and physiotherapy. Read more

Artificial Intelligence based analysis and exploration of medical, health and biobank data

A large number of forums offer medical and health-related data such as UK Biobank. In this project, we explore the potential of machine learning tools and techniques to efficiently solve the problem of a large domain. Read more

A pressure governing approach for modelling of variable flow systems in Building Performance Simulation (BPS) tools

Heating and cooling distribution systems are the most common parts of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) systems, which account for a significant portion of energy used in HVAC&R systems. Read more

Decarbonisation of heating and cooling

Decarbonisation of heating and cooling in buildings can be achieved through switching fuels and transferring the demand from Natural Gas to low carbon electricity. Read more

Quantifying the impact of air pollution on natural ventilation capacity

Natural ventilation is often considered to be the most energy efficient and sustainable solution for ventilating a building, with the potential to reduce the energy cost required for air conditioning. Read more
