Error-control coding in DNA sequences

Over the past decade, there has been a lot of interest in studying the information-theoretic aspects of DNA sequences. For instance, the seminal work carried out by the French researcher Gerard Battail has shown that any DNA strand can be viewed as a codeword in the context of error-control coding theory. Read more

Intensified thermal management of electronic devices

Various projects are available in the broad area of thermal management of electronic and electrical devices. Generally in the group we focus on “intensified” cooling solutions, for example. Read more

Aeroelasticity of wind turbines under extreme weather condition

Wind energy goes at the heart of the battle for reducing greenhouse gases, tackling challenges in energy sector and achieving net-zero emission.  With increase in demand for renewable electricity wind turbines grows in size over the years to increase power output of each individual turbines. Read more

Design of an artificial finger joint

Despite a myriad of designs having been proposed and implanted over several decades, the search for a successful and long-lasting artificial finger joint continues [1]. Read more

New Nuclear, the solution to Net Zero?

Sustainable sources of energy are a necessity if we are to decarbonise and achieve  Carbon Net Zero targets. Nuclear Energy is a vital part of the mix, although there are some reservations around cost and public acceptance.  . Read more

Design of Non-Binary Error-Correcting Codes for Free-Space Optical Communications

Free-space optical (FSO) communications is an important research area and is now considered to be a competing technology to well-established outdoor RF communication systems. Read more

Computational simulation of the wear process of orthopaedic joints

Orthopaedic joints such as hips and knees are now a relatively common operation. However, they are essentially plain bearings and so are subject to wear and friction. Read more

3D Vibration Assisted Micro Machining of Sculptured Surfaces on Hard-to-machine Materials

High-accuracy micro components or microstructures are increasingly in demand for various industries, such as biomedical engineering, MEMS, electro-optics, aerospace and communications. Read more

Achieving Material Efficiency in Modern Floor Design based on Human Acceptability

Background. The production of construction materials is a significant source of carbon emissions, and the way of achieving low carbon in construction is to enhance material efficiency. Read more

AI-based Rigid-Flexible Coupled Dynamic Performance Analysis of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines

On purpose of achieving Net-zero target, offshore wind turbines are having to be built and operate in deeper waters and further offshore which allows for harvesting more abundant and consistent wind resources, and Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is a promising solution. Read more

Techno-economic assessment of renewable hydrogen production via chemical-looping reforming of biogas

Clean and carbon-free hydrogen production is expected to play a vital role in future global energy transitions. Biogas is an interesting renewable biomass resource for hydrogen production due to its sustainable nature. . Read more

Autonomous Mobile Robots

Projects will look at the design, construction, control and application of autonomous mobile robotic systems. Potential projects include novel robot architecture, control algorithms (including AI development) and collaborative robot behaviour (including SWARM). Read more

Converting CO2 into Useful Products using Non-thermal Plasmas

CO2 should be converted to useful products rather than simply be captured. Non-thermal plasma reactors operating at ambient temperature can be used to convert CO2 to various other species in reactions that are not observed in conventional chemistry until 1000s of oC. Read more
