Buildings, Waste Networks, and the Circular Economy (Advert Reference: RDF22/EE/GES/FORMAN)

Excessive waste is one of the key challenges of the Anthropocene and is inextricably linked to contemporary forms of Capitalism. To Capitalist economies, waste features as both anathema and existential requirement. Read more

Using remote sensing and machine learning to explore the spatial patterning of poverty and inequality

Overview. This interdisciplinary project will focus on studying how we can improve our understanding of the spatial patterning of poverty and inequality across the UK and possibly internationally (depending on the student’s interests/skills and data availability). Read more

A cognitive spatial approach to informal settlements (Advert Reference: RDF22/EE/ABE/VIALARD)

Concern over the sustainability of metropolitan urban footprints has reached new heights in recent years following the continued expansion of land consumption to accommodate an ever-growing urban population. Read more

Learning from ‘intentional communities’: alternative pathways to spatial production in the face of the climate emergency (Advert Reference: RDF22/EE/ABE/BERTOLINO)

The project has been inspired by a recent article on The Guardian reporting that, during the pandemic, intentional communities have been “inundated by new applicants driven by the Extinction Rebellion movement and the glimpse that lockdown has offered of simpler, less consumption driven lifestyles”.

PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences: Scaling up Greening the Grey and Eco-engineering Science through partnership with coastal infrastructure asset managers: creating co-benefits for science and operational practice

Do you want to do cutting edge research that is also useful for improving ecosystem services in our coastal cities and towns? Are you interested in using marine ecology and coastal geomorphology science to enhance ecosystem services on coastal engineering assets? If yes, this project will hopefully excite and appeal to you!. Read more

Following the light: using ‘brightspots’ to avoid future forest fires

Responding to the reality of pervasive tropical forest fires is an urgent social and environmental challenge. Tropical fires emit disproportionate quantities of carbon, harm public health and human well-being, burden the economy and negatively impact biodiversity. Read more

Everyday knowledges on street dogs and public health

This student-led PhD project will investigate everyday knowledges related to street dogs and public health in India. The overarching aim is to examine non-Eurocentric knowledges of health at the street dogs-human interface. Read more

Observations of forest carbon / ecosystem services trade-offs in the UK

Project Highlights. Satellite imagery will be used to map forest biomass stocks in the United Kingdom. Using remotely sensed data and models to monitor the status of ecosystem services such as habitat quality, recreation, timber production, biodiversity, scenic beauty, water supply and carbon storage. Read more

Attributing causes of extreme fire events with the JULES Land Surface Model and Artificial Intelligence

Project Highlights. Will evaluate state-of-the-art developments within the JULES land-surface model (the land surface scheme within the UK Earth System Model) related to fire using the latest Earth Observation satellite data. Read more

High Resolution Thermal Imaging Data for Earth Observation Research and Services

Project Highlights. Develop new algorithm approaches to transform thermal satellite remote sensing. Confront the challenge of big data to explore changes in the temperature and composition of the Earth’s surface. Read more

Understanding the role of mosquito vectors in food webs of African birds and bats

Mosquitoes are the deadliest animals on the planet, due to their role as vectors of diseases like malaria and dengue. While progress has been made in understanding the ecology of the mosquitoes themselves, there are still many gaps to fill. Read more
