Examples of PhD projects

Below are details of some of the PhD projects, offered by our academics for the academic year 2024/25. If you are interested in a particular project or research area, please mention this in your application and your research proposal and feel free to contact supervisors directly. These, however, are only examples of projects; the research would normally evolve in real time, and supervisors are generally open to new projects. Once you feel that you are interested in a specific research area or supervisor please mention this in your application form so we can direct your application to the most appropriate reviewers.
