All aspects of fundamental fluid dynamics research applied to aerodynamics, hydrodynamics, turbulence and areas relevant to process engineering.
This research area focuses on the study of fundamental, generic and applied concepts concerning the conversion of coal, oil and gas into electricity for grid use, and the integration of these technologies into the renewable sector.
This research area focuses on the study of devices which generate electricity directly through the oxidation of fuel.
This research area focuses on the synthesis, characterisation and theoretical understanding of functional ceramic and inorganic materials.
The study of shape and form, including algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, geometric topology and geometric group theory, differential geometry and geometric analysis.
The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) supports cutting-edge research to address challenges faced by developing countries.
The fund addresses the UN sustainable development goals. It aims to maximise the impact of research and innovation to improve lives and opportunity in the developing world.
This research area focuses on the synthesis, characterisation and theoretical understanding of graphene, carbon nanotubes and other carbon-based nanomaterials.
This research area focuses on the synthesis and manipulation of visual content, including augmented and virtual reality, animation, immersive technologies and novel ways of visualising data.
The aim of this programme is to assess sustainable routes for large-scale removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, allowing the UK to take a major step towards achieving net zero emissions, and to benefit from the £400 billion future global market in greenhouse gas removal.
The aim of this programme is to carry out research to better understand the options for removing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, with a focus on the environmental, technical, economic, governance and wider societal aspects in a national and international context.
