Recognition, understanding and synthesis of human speech, using a range of techniques and focusing on how systems recognise and generate the sounds of language.
This research area covers the study of the property of electrons known as ‘spin’ and its potential exploitation in specially designed devices.
Statistical methodology and development of new probabilistic techniques inspired by applications.
Addressing the civil engineering challenges associated with construction materials, structural analysis, and extreme events and structural resilience.
This research area focuses on the synthesis, characterisation and fundamental physics of superconducting materials and devices.
This research area focuses on understanding the structure, processes, dynamics and functionality of surfaces and interfaces, and how they determine chemical and physical properties.
The application of engineering tools and principles to design and engineer novel biologically based parts, devices and systems that do not exist in the natural world, as well as the redesign of existing natural biological systems for useful purposes.
Design and synthesis of novel coordination complexes and ligands, and development of novel synthetic methodologies.
This research area involves devising new ways to design and synthesise organic molecules, with an emphasis on developing new reagents or new novel synthetic methodologies based on new chemical reactivity.
With a focus on structures comprising several or many molecules, design and synthesis of chemical systems using molecular self-assembly and recognition.
