Improving the sensitivity of gravitational-wave detectors

There are several possible research directions for one or more PhD students on this project.


Studying the populations of nature’s brightest fireworks

In this project, the PhD student will gather knowledge of supernova explosions linked to the life and death of massive stars as well as programming skills in python, experience in observational astronomy, cosmology and statistics.


Structural analysis of receptors for insecticidal toxins

Insecticidal toxins produced by bacteria such as Bacillus thuringiensis and Lysinibacillus sphaericus are the active agents in these important biological pesticides and can also be exploited in the production of insect-resistant transgenic plants.


Proper general decomposition for convection-diffusion equations

This project will develop new numerical discretizations for solving PDEs that can subsequently be applied to problems in fluid mechanics.


How do magma reservoirs evolve during caldera cycles?

This project aims to reveal the mechanisms underlying the eruptive frequency of active caldera systems and use them to interpret modern day surface deformation measurements.


Early detection of tsunami by acoustic-gravity waves

This project will develop various mathematical techniques and methods, with a focus on perturbation methods, asymptotic analysis, and separation of variables, to solve the general wave equation for a three-dimensional space.


Efficiency and Productivity in the UK Water industry

The aim of the project is to identify the degree and sources of cost inefficiency using parametric and non-parametric methods.


Neuroimaging of social perception in Autism Spectrum Disorders

People with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have difficulties in social communication, including perceiving emotions.


In vitro cartilage tissue engineering to model arthritis

This project will generate an organotypic model of a human joint making use of the existing articular cartilage model to reproduce the interplay of tissues.


Probing the intermediate-mass regime of star formation

On the project you will use data to map the intertwined populations of interstellar filaments and intermediate to high-mass cores within galactic plane star-forming regions.


Welsh head teachers’ professional learning and development needs

This project focusses on Welsh head teachers’ professional learning and development needs.


Flexible vectors for immunotherapy against cancer and pathogens

This project aims to determine pathways that can drive the growth of particular types of NK and T cells that are optimised to provide better protection from disease. We will use cytomegalovirus and leukaemic cells as systems of analysis.


Adaptive modelling and optimisation of hyperelastic cellular structures

This project will identify mechanical properties amenable to mathematical treatment and produce physically realistic mathematical models for natural cellular structures.


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.


Whole-person emotion perception in Autism Spectrum Disorder

This project will study whole-person representations of emotion in ASD, by characterising the processing and integration of signals from the face and body.


Optical integration and optimisation for The Simons Observatory

This project has the potential to enable new fundamental physics discoveries which will advance the fields of particle physics and cosmology.


Looking for plastic biodegraders in submarine hydrothermal ecosystems

The proposed project will screen a range of hydrothermal microorganisms existing in the German and American type culture collections for their potential to biodegrade a variety of plastics with different compositions and applications.


Wild Biome: interactions between gut microbiota and parasites

The broad aim of this project is to examine host-microbiota-parasite interactions. Specific experiments will be agreed in collaboration with the student.


Project SAMSA - Smart Analytical Materials for Supertoxic Agents

In this project we aim to develop a new class of sensor molecules which are designed to give different changes in colour or fluorescence upon reaction with different types of target molecule, to allow non-experts to make informed decisions on CWA decontamination.


Professional Doctorate of Advanced Healthcare Science and Practice (DAHSP)

A Professional Doctorate programme designed to fit around the needs of practitioners working in health, educational and research settings, focused on enhancing leadership and implementation in service improvement and delivery.
