Social computing

This priority area is underpinned by activities of the Social Data Science Lab and the Mobile and Social Computing Lab.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Area


The School of Medicine offers research degrees in the medical disciplines such as cancer, immunology, infection, immunity, neurosciences, mental health and population medicine.

PhD, MPhil, MD Full-time, Part-time Programme

Text and data mining

In this priority area, we are especially interested in applying text and data mining in the areas of healthcare, policing, life sciences and social sciences.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Area

Human factors technology

Human factors technology is dedicated to understanding and improving the way people use technology in information environment. It focuses on automated mining, structuring and integration of digital information (including text, voice, music and images), facilitating human-computer communication, and studying human behaviour by utilising sensor informatics.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Area

Data privacy and cybersecurity

Examples of our research in cybersecurity include the machine classification of malware in various forms (eg binary executables and web links), mathematical models for the quantification and forecasting of network security risk, security of industrial control systems (eg SCADA systems), and Cloud security.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Area

Distributed and parallel systems

This priority area is interested in compute-intensive and data-intensive multidisciplinary applications spanning traditional computational science and the emerging area of big data science.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Area

Computer Science and Informatics

Studying for a PhD or MPhil at the Cardiff School of Computer Science and Informatics offers you the opportunity to become part of a strong, dynamic and internationally successful research school.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Programme

Knowledge representation and reasoning

The field of knowledge representation and reasoning is concerned with systems for automated reasoning in the context of artificial intelligence. Our focus in particular is on: defeasible and inductive reasoning, argumentation, qualitative spatial reasoning, epistemic reasoning and knowledge acquisition.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Area

Visual Computing

Our research in visual computing spans a wide range of topics in the fields of computer vision, computer graphics, geometric computing and both image and video processing. A significant theme in our work considers the input, description and editing of solids, surfaces and curves. These are represented analytically, as CAD models and as meshes. Other aspects of our work include the analysis, use and generation of static data such as images, surface meshes and 3D depth scans, as well as time-varying data such as video and 4D scans of moving objects. Our expertise in this area has been applied to problems from a range of disciplines including engineering, earth sciences, psychology, biology, medicine and even quantum control.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Area

Quantum technologies and engineering

Quantum technologies and engineering (QuTeE) focuses on modelling and control techniques to engineer quantum devices and processes. We work on techniques to design, control and optimise the behaviour of quantum processes based on methods to model and simulate quantum systems, characterise their behaviour by parameter and model learning, and visualise and analyse measurement signals.

PhD, MPhil Full-time, Part-time Area

Studying human neuropsychiatric disease in DLG2 deficient human neurons

This PhD project in Medicine tries to understand DLG2’s role during neural development and in mature neurons using variety of techniques.


Chromatin dynamics in Huntington's disease

The aim of this project is to investigate whether chromatin structure influences CAG repeat expansion in Huntingtin, and whether repeat expansion in turn alters chromatin structure.


Dynamic models for mesenchymal stem cells: a 3-D ex vivo culture system mapped to existing 2-D differentiation models

The aim of this project is to obtain appropriate kinetic and phenotypic maps that allow us to understand the cell and molecular aspects of tissue and dentine regeneration.


Advanced virotherapies for immuno-oncolytic applications

This project will develop refined virotherapies for the delivery immunotherapies in vivo.


Mitochondria and peroxisome crosstalk in neurons: How and why?

This project will use novel in vivo Drosophila genetic approaches and CRISPR cell culture techniques to investigate mitochondria and peroxisomes.


Optimising expansion of CD8+ T cells for immunotherapy

This study aims to generate new understanding/reagents that will enable the expansion of highly functional T-cells for immunotherapy.


Ehmt1 and the epigenetic control of genomic imprinting in neurodevelopmental disorders

This project will explore whether haploinsuffficiency of Ehmt1 leads to abnormal genomic imprinting during neurodevelopment.


Understanding how C-type lectin-like receptors collaborate to clear fungal infections

The aim of this project is to determine whether CLR targeting/co-engagement could have therapeutic benefits.


Control of CD4+ T cell responses by human gamma/delta T cells

The objective of this project is to define the molecular mechanisms underlying CD4+ T-cell polarisation by γ5 T-cells and identify ways to manipulate them for future interventions.


Dissecting the impact of L-selectin proteolysis on T lymphocyte dependent virus immunity

This project will determine how fragments of digested L-selectin control the ability of killer T cells to detect and kill virus.


Mechanisms controlling the switch between the pro- and anti-fibrotic functions of the long non-coding natural anti-sense to hyaluronan synthase 2

This project will dissect, at the molecular level, the mechanisms that regulate HAS2-AS1 expression/function leading to a HA-dependent pro-fibrotic cell-phenotype and which can be used as potential novel therapeutic targets.
