  The virtual body schema project: How can body schema be objectively defined and measured?
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr T Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The body schema can be loosely defined as the representation of the body in space, i.e., how you know you can reach the pint at the bar but not the bottle behind it; that you can fit through the door but not the cat-flap; that you must dive to kick a ball or duck to avoid a punch.
  The synthetic littermate project: How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain?
  Dr SP Wilson, Prof AJ Prescott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’).
  Self-organisation as a theory of brain development
  Dr SP Wilson, Dr JV Stone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Self-organisation is a general theory of how function is assigned to cortical microcircuits. The theory predicts that a balance between cooperative and competitive interactions in local cortical circuits, consolidated by Hebbian learning, results in similar inputs being represented by nearby neurons.
  Toward Next generation of Brain Computer Interfaces
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A brain-computer interface (BCI) provides a direct communication pathway between a human brain and an external device. Using appropriate sensors and data processing algorithms, a BCI maps patterns of brain activity associated with a volitional thought onto signals suitable for communication and control.
  Adaptive Learning in brain-robot interactions
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to develop a non-invasive brain-machine interface (BMI) that allows a user to direct a semi-autonomous robot to perform different tasks through brain signals.
  Developing new adaptive and machine learning algorithms to successfully decode brain signals across subjects
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A brain decoding model aims at predicting what sensory stimulus is received (e.g. visual stimuli, different images), which mental state is experienced (i.e.
  Multimodal Control of Prosthetic Limbs/Paralysed Muscles
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to enhance the quality of life of patients with amputees, spinal cord injury, stroke and brain injury by developing advanced control strategies for artificial limbs.
  Autonomous Scalable Knowledge Extraction and Decision Making for Complex Systems and Dynamic Environments
  Prof L Mihaylova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research is focused on multi-sensor data fusion for decision making. The project aims at dealing with large volumes of data and high dimensional systems.
  Digitising complex large scale manufacturing activities
  Dr J Oyekan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Large scale manufacturing of large complex products such as aircraft or modular construction often require manual assembly of large sub-components.
  Human-Robot Collaboration for manual intensive complex manufacturing processes
  Dr J Oyekan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research is to investigate strategies to achieve safe human-robot collaboration on manufacturing tasks such as composite layup of complex products.
