Mathematical Modelling of plant growth: using maths to feed the world

  • Full or part time

    Applications accepted all year round
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Virtually all our food comes ultimately from plants, either directly or when used as feedstock for animals. Thus to ensure a secure food supply for the future, particularly in the light of global climate change and population growth, it is essential that we fully understand how plants develop so we may optimise their growth in challenging environmental conditions (for example during a drought or a flood). This project uses mathematical techniques to investigate the multiscale mechanics which underpin this growth, and hence determine the key biological factors driving plant development.

Funding Notes

This research project is one of a number of projects at this institution. It is in competition for funding with one or more of these projects. Usually the project which receives the best applicant will be awarded funding. The funding is only available to UK citizens who are normally resident in the UK or who have been resident in the UK for a period of 3 years or more. Non-UK Students: If you have the correct qualifications and access to your own funding, either from your home country or your own finances, your application for this project will be considered.
