Research projects and supervisors
The biggest considerations when choosing to study for an MSc, PhD or MPhil are the project and supervisor. We recommend discussing your research interests with one of our world-leading academic staff before applying.
The most successful are defined by a distinct strength and knowledge of a subject area. The list of potential projects is indicative – please contact members of staff directly for more information.
I am interested in supervising PhD students in the field of Science and Technology Studies - in particular health or cancer technologies, experiences of health and technologies or workplace studies. I am particularly interested in supervising students with backgrounds in practice.
Please contact me if you are interested in pursuing a PhD in machine learning or statistical modelling for molecular biomedicine. Potential PhD topics that I am currently offering are: 1) Multi-task regression for detecting global effects on the human microbiome. 2) Machine learning for drug selection in personalized cancer medicine. 3) Variational parameter inference in statistical models with intractable likelihoods.
Please contact me if you are interested in undertaking a PhD in any of the following: 1) Raman spectroscopy and bone biology 2) Does non-invasive detection of mineralisation in bone offer an early diagnostic for bone disease? 3) Predicting atypical fracture risk associated with long term bisphosphonate treatment
Please contact me if you are interested in doing a PhD in the area of genome stability and DNA replication. Details of specific projects available in my research group can usually be found on FindaPhd.com. Applications for self-funded study can be made at any time.
I am happy to discuss potential PhD projects, related to any of the following topics: infectious disease epidemiology; - disease dynamics and transmission; - surveillance and control of infectious disease; - mathematical modelling of epidemics; - outbreak assessment methods; - evolutionary dynamics of pathogens. I am happy to supervise both primary data collection and secondary data analysis approaches.
Please contact me if you are interested in undertaking a PhD in: Alkaptonuria, Osteoarthritis, cartilage or bone biology, Anatomy teaching and delivery. Any projects available in my lab are usually advertised online. Self funded applications will be considered at any time.
