Data mining at the South Galactic Pole

Automated methods of extracting the properties of millions of galaxies from survey data and identifying new classes of rare objects.


Machine learning to extract gravitatonal wave transients

Identifying astrophysical gravitational wave transients from events such as supernovae.


Machine learning to maximise the impact of ALMA

Development of new, automated methods for identifying sources in data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).


Extracting weak Gravitional Wave events

Use of machine learning techniques to identify and classify weak gravitational wave events in data from the LIGO and Virgo detectors.


Searching for Cosmic Anomalies

This project will involve developing, testing and applying innovative statistical analysis techniques to real and simulated data sets.


Revealing Astronomical and Archaeological Information from Satellite Imaging Data (AA - Reveal)

The proposed project is to look at the further development of the astronomical software and to particularly consider its application to archaeological surveys.


Automated Searches for Ultra-Diffuse Emission from Stars

We are particularly interested in the fraction of stars that lie outside of easily recognised galactic structures as a means of tracing the assembly history of dark matter haloes of various masses.


Vertical cavity surface emitting lasers for miniature atomic clocks

This research project is available as part of the EPSRC National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) Doctoral Training Partnership.


Single crystal analysis of frustrated magnetic systems, using the world's leading powder diffraction instrument

This project would extend the use of WISH to cover robust single crystal analysis of diffuse scattering and weak Bragg peak data with in-situ measurements to extend our fundamental understanding of frustrated magnetic systems.
