PhD position summary/title: Pregnancy vitamin D supplementation and offspring musculoskeletal health: Deepening the understanding of how to deliver personalised medicine

The MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Centre (University of Southampton) is a world-leading research centre for musculoskeletal lifecourse epidemiology and early life programming. Using the internationally unique MAVIDOS randomised controlled trial, we have demonstrated that pregnancy vitamin D supplementation increases offspring bone mass at age 4 years. Detailed assessment of the children at 6-7 years including dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) and high resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT; virtual bone biopsy) has been undertaken. In the UK, it is currently recommended that all women take vitamin D during pregnancy, but routine use of supplementation is low. Personalised approaches to medicine include both establishing characteristics which may direct the need for dose stratification and understanding current barriers to the use of supplementation.

PhD position summary/title: Physics informed machine learning approach for integration of geotechnical and geophysical data to define centimetre-scale design parameters across kilometre-scale offshore wind farms

The objective is to develop a physics-informed machine-learning approach to correlate geophysical and geotechnical parameters at centimetric scale across kilometre-scale offshore wind farms. Such a method will both inform requirements of geophysical surveys and enable extraction of geotechnical parameters for engineering design from geophysical data. Ultimately the method will reduce the amount of geotechnical investigation required, and enable flexibility of windfarm layout post survey, in both cases reducing costs, increasing reliability and accelerating offshore wind deployment.

PhD position summary/title: Investigating human T cell development in lymph nodes

This project is investigating how T cells develop. These cells are important for fighting infection, and for storing the memory of previous infections. However, if they switch on too strongly, or in response to the wrong trigger, they can themselves cause disease. Badly-controlled T cell responses drive many autoimmune diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease and Multiple Sclerosis. It is important that we understand how these T cells are switched on, and how they develop into the disease-causing rather than the protective type.

(07) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Gravity separation of emulsions. Collisions of droplets

The aim of this project is to develop and verify, against available experimental data, a mathematical model capable of predicting the typical behaviour and time scales of separating water and oil emulsions.

The separation of colloidal systems under the influence of gravity is a physical phenomenon encountered in numerous industrial processes throughout food, chemical, petroleum, and hydrometallurgical industries. 

Gravity settlers are widely used as they are a cost-effective and energy-efficient method for the separation process. Their designs often rely on empirical and semi-empirical models based on the Stokes’ Law. This often results in oversized equipment and a lack of information on the internal effects on separation efficiencies.

PhD position summary/title: Computational modelling to understand the key drivers of placental evolution

This project will use computational modelling in combination with 3D multiscale multimodal imaging to improve our understanding of placental evolution, in close collaboration between engineering and medicine.

While the mammalian placenta only evolved once, it is remarkable just how many different types of placentas there are in different animals. The variety of placental structures is much more pronounced than for any other organ. This is particularly striking, given that the placenta essentially fulfils the same function of providing oxygen and nutrients to support the growth and development of the fetus in the womb until their time of birth. This provides a fascinating opportunity to study how different structural adaptations can maintain a core function while also responding to species specific requirements.

PhD position summary/title: Convective heat-transfer in turbulent boundary layers

The electrification of aircraft as an enabler for achieving our Net-Zero ambitions has been increasingly studied in recent years. The addition of new electrical components as part of the power train in electric (hybrid) aircraft increases the overall propulsion efficiency, but the heat generated by these additional systems must be removed. In fact, designing an efficient thermal management system poses one of the major challenges for (hybrid)electric aircraft. 

One possible avenue to remove excess heat is through the turbulent boundary layers that are flowing over the wings or the fuselage of the airframe. In fact, convective heat transfer in turbulent boundary layers is a critically important area for a variety of applications ranging from cooling of high-power electronics to turbomachinery.

We have developed a new optical diagnostic that enables us to capture 3D data over large volumes. The goal is to deploy this technique in wind tunnel experiments and capture the 3D flow information over the entire length of pressure-gradient history. 

Turbulent boundary layers subjected to pressure gradients are found in a wide range of engineering applications and environmental flows. The pressure gradient imposed on the boundary layer can be by design (such as wings or turbine blades) or due to operating conditions (e.g. urban flows or fuselage flow distorted by installation effects).

PhD position summary/title: Regenerating freshwater ecosystems: chalk stream restoration in the UK

This collaborative project led by the University of Southampton in partnership with The Piscatorial Society, Southern Water, and Wessex Rivers Trust will adopt an innovative approach to monitor a unique river and wetland restoration and regeneration project on the River Anton, Hampshire.

Chalk streams have been modified by humans for millennia for agriculture, navigation, flood risk mitigation, and hydropower. Compared to other river systems, they have received relatively limited attention.

Today, efforts to restore rivers to a more natural condition are widespread for the purpose of enhancing ecological condition, fisheries, and to reduce flood risk through natural flood management strategies. Nevertheless, there is often a lack of sufficient monitoring to quantify the effectiveness of such approaches, and where there has, results are often variable.

PhD position summary/title: Experimental measurements of turbulent flow over porous liners

Aircraft engines are the primary source of noise during take-off and landing. To mitigate this noise, modern engines are built with porous liners that consist of a honeycomb core sandwiched between a solid plate at the bottom and a perforated sheet at the top that is exposed to the flow. 

The sound attenuation depends on the porosity, which is controlled by changing the perforations at the top and its alignment and orientation with the honeycomb structure under it. Although the sound attenuation mechanism is well examined, the aerodynamic penalty of using different types of liners is largely unknown. In fact, previous works suggest that the liners behave similarly to surface roughness and aerodynamic drag increases between 2% and 500% depending on the type of liner.

PhD position summary/title: Active noise control on controllable flexible surfaces

Active noise control (ANC) has been developed over many years to mitigate unwanted noise in various environments. It finds applications in areas such as noise-cancelling headphones, car cabins, aircraft interiors, and even in windows for creating quieter spaces. However, the performance of an ANC system remains limited by its acoustic design, which necessitates customising the placement of electroacoustic components for each specific ANC application.

This project aims to revolutionise ANC by introducing new degrees of freedom, enabling the system to autonomously adapt the placement of electroacoustic components to on-site conditions. One feasible way is to integrate a control source and an array of sensors into an ANC unit that can communicate with other ANC units and can be moved automatically.
