  Developing methodologies and concepts concerning water system efficiencies in Post-Covid19 urban environments; do we save water by working at home and can we benefit from related behavioural changes?
  Dr K Hyde
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Major improvements are expected in building design requirements in 2021, including those for water systems in buildings. Relationships between conceptual and behavioural changes in attitudes towards new building designs and water-using attributes are not well understood in current contexts.
  Reinforcement Learning based Recommender systems in the Era of Big Data
  Dr H Liang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

to be updated.
  Water Sensitive Cities and Commons: using recycled water for maintenance irrigation to sustain green-blue infrastructure and to supplement the urban form hydrology
  Dr K Hyde
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Communities with existing urban water infrastructure face barriers to engagement between the urban community and the urban water environment; for example in the case of streams still culverted or unhealthy, overgrown feeder streams and ponds that have lost a social role or function.
  Passive cooling in cities: a multi-scale modelling approach
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"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.
  Buildings, energy and professional ways of thinking
  Dr L Schweber, Dr P Boyd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The challenge of designing and constructing energy efficient buildings is both a social and a technical problem.
  Artificial Intelligence based analysis and exploration of medical, health and biobank data
  Dr V Ojha
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Deep learning for Image and Video Processing and Information Retrieval
  Dr V Ojha
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the age of large scale automation and data explosion, deep learning offers means to process unstructured image data and allow us to receive a large amount of information.
  A new approach to modelling complex human/robot movement dynamics using techniques from machine learning
  Prof X Hong, Prof W Harwin, Prof R Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in sensing and communications have made it easy to obtain large sets of measurements about an entity, activity or event.
  Multi-view approaches for content-based image clustering
  Prof X Hong, Dr H Wei, Prof J Ferryman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human and animal learning are naturally in the so-called semi-supervised mode of learning, i.e. with a limited teaching but more of self-training experiments.
  Flexibility in heating demand using heat pump and energy storage technologies
  Dr M Shahrestani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Decarbonisation of heat in buildings through switching fuels and transferring the demand from Natural Gas to low carbon electricity will put extra pressure on the electricity network.
  Animats - neural culture controlled robots for closed-loop neuroscience
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will continue research started at the University of Reading on animats - robotic platforms controlled in real time by activity of biological neuron cultures and will investigate the methods for implementing efficient conditioning protocols.
  Biomechanics and activity analysis in the wild
  Prof W Harwin, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Movement analysis and recording has been confined to dedicate gait and motion capture facilities, but this only only records movements for a single part of one day in an unusual environment.
  Delivering Sustainable Energy Solutions to Ports
  Prof W Holderbaum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Ports are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions as they have to move up to 10,000 containers a day from ship to road or rail transport and correspondingly in the reverse direction from land transport onto ships.
  Designing Technology for Personalised Nutrition
  Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD investigates the design of technology to provide personalised nutrition advice. Non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are major challenges globally, and can be addressed, in part, by eating a healthier diet.
  Effect of dietary vitamin B supplementation on brain neural activity
  Prof Y Zheng, Prof C Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of vitamins B6, B12 and folate, for optimal physiological and neurological functioning.
