The application of Agent-Based Simulations for risk assessment and management processes related to natural hazards.

This project focuses on using a relatively new, simulation-based technique called Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) to model the behaviour of individuals and aggregated agents (e.g. government, regulatory authorities etc.) to gain insights into the higher-order effects.

Grey-box modelling for residential building thermal costs estimation

The importance of improving the energy efficiency of buildings has been recognised as critical to decrease greenhouse gas emissions from building energy production to meet the UK government’s target on net-zero emissions. This PhD aims at developing a hybrid grey-box framework for residential building thermal consumption estimation based on properties’ geometric and thermal characteristics.

Multi-scale, circular economic potential of non-residential building stock

Reducing the demand for new materials and embodied carbon will be significant challenges that the construction sector faces in the coming decades. This research will build the evidence base to demonstrate the role the circular economy can have in tackling these challenges in construction, and provide the knowledge required to facilitate shifts in policy and practice.

Understanding the relationship between resource consumption and development levels

The growth of cities simultaneously increases demand for construction material and results in strong inequalities of development. A systematic understanding of the material requirements to improve human living standards may become crucial in evaluating meaningful pathways towards sustainable development.

DecarboN8 – an integrated network to decarbonise transport

The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2018 highlighted the need for urgent, transformative change, on an unprecedented scale, if global warming is to be restricted to 1.5C. The DecarboN8 project will develop a new network of researchers, working closely with industry and government, capable of designing solutions which can be deployed rapidly and at scale.

Quantifying Evapotranspiration from Urban Green Infrastructure

This project explores 3 experimental methods to infer and quantify evapotranspiration (ET) from a set of green roof test beds, each with a varied vegetation/substrate combination. The aim of the project is to find suitable techniques that can be reproduced to measure ET in a SuDS (Sustainable Drainage Systems) context within urbanised areas.
