Fractional Differential Equations in Mathematical Biology – modelling and simulation.

In this PhD project we will use fractional differential equations to model and simulate neuron spiking and protein friction. To run the simulations we will develop numerical schemes which reduce the memory footprint of the memory tail characterising fractional derivatives.

XRCT Hydromechanical Damage Evolution In Porous Rocks: Characterisation and Modelling

This project aims to develop a new damage model based on thermodynamics and damage mechanics to capture the hydro-mechanical driven damage of porous rock. The damage evolution is characterised using coupled ultrasonic wave propagation responses and X-ray micro-computed tomography (XRCT) imaging.

Heat events and health burden in the tropics under the global warming

Heat warning for heat waves have been derived from data in the temperate zones. Evidence needs to be examined for the appropriateness of these in areas where components to the relationship between heat and health are different.

Transitional Metal Thiophosphates Based Cathodes for Researchable Aluminium-ion Batteries

Battery technology is critical for global energy transformation. Aluminium-ion batteries (AIBs) are promising new battery technology but suffer from low capacity cathodes. This project aims to develop stable and high capacity transitional metal thiophosphates as a new generation of AIB cathodes.

Indian summer monsoon variability during the past ten thousand years

Significant spatial and temporal heterogeneity exist between the records of past monsoon variability calling for independent, well-dated paleoclimate reconstructions. This project aims to reconstruct high resolution monsoon changes across the last 10,000 years using lake archives from North India.
