SAFERUP! Current Projects

Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience

The basis for the project will be to co-create the next generation of urban pavements whilst improving the environmental performance and minimising negative environmental impacts. CAWR research will monitor and evaluate the environmental risk from the use of novel paving materials. This will be done by taking samples of the materials and analysing them for organic and inorganic contaminants such as metals and oil residues. The project will feed back into design processes to make the drainage system connected to the pavements, as chemically sustainable as possible, maximising the opportunity to detain urban pollutants and increase the potential for bioremediation and in-situ clean up.


Governing Natural Resources for Food Sovereignty Current Projects

Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience

The objective of this preliminary research is to elaborate a 3-year participatory action research (PAR) project on the governance of natural resources for food sovereignty.


STARGATE Current Projects

Centre for Fluid and Complex Systems

Reducing the amount of instrument cabling on turbine engines is key to more efficient testing, and will enable reduced wiring weight and complexity on production engines in the future.


Post-Earthquake Structural Health Monitoring System (PE-SMS) Current Projects

Centre for Fluid and Complex Systems

This proposal aims to develop a Post-Earthquake Structural Health Monitoring System (PE-SMS). The PE-SMS will be an end-to-end proof of concept wireless sensor network for collection, communication and aggregation of structural health data.


PULP-SEED (Philippines UK coLlaborative Partnership-System for Environmental and Efficient Drying) Current Projects

Centre for Fluid and Complex Systems

PULP-SEED’s aim is to make use of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology to improve and streamline mango waste processing.


True - TRansition paths to sUstainable legume based systems in Europe Current Projects

Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience

True project aims to identify the best routes, or “transition paths” to increase sustainable legume cultivation and consumption across Europe.


STAR Energy: Sustainable and Replicable Off-grid Renewable Energy System for Riverside Communities in the Amazon Current Projects

Centre for Fluid and Complex Systems

The aim of this institutional link is to design, implement and monitor a pilot low-carbon based energy solution with a sustainable business model to increase energy security, reduce environmental impact and improve economic and health indicators for one riverside community that can be scaled and replicated in other communities in the Amazon.


Slavery Compensation and The Highland Clearances Current Projects

Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience

This project investigates whether the revolution in land ownership was fuelled by compensation money received in 1834 by slaveowners for the loss of their 'property' when slavery was abolished in the British Empire.


Putting diversity back together Current Projects

Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience

Understand the processes that influence the success or failure of ecological restoration effort and make robust predictions at regional scales.


Dancing Bodies in Coventry Current Projects

Centre for Dance Research

Dancing Bodies in Coventry is a Coventry City of Culture 2021 funded project that is being led by researchers from Coventry University’s Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE). 


Helping Hands Project Current Projects

To design, deliver, and evaluate a home-school program of inclusion/early intervention for children with ADHD-like behaviours in Slovakia, Hungry, and Romania.


Evaluating people-environment trade-offs through low-tech intensification of livestock management in communal grazing systems in South Africa (Trade-offs in communal range land systems) Current Projects

Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience

The overall aim of this project is to evaluate trade-offs between novel range management practices (intensified planned grazing, corralling and removal of woody plants) so that production, ecosystem function and livelihood outcomes are enhanced in a way that is socially appropriate for 345 local people on 8 000 ha of communal range and crop lands in South Africa.


Beyond Ecosystem Services: Brokering Agrobiodiversity Management Enterprises in Europe and Internationally (EcoBroker) Current Projects

Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience

This Fellowship aims to explore innovative business models and learning approaches that will increase sustainable agro-biodiversity management and reconnect food chain players and civil society with agro-biodiversity values.


Multi-disciplinary evaluation of sexual assault referral centres for better health (MESARCH) Current Projects

Centre for Advances in Behavioural Science

This research project will evaluate Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs) across England in terms of benefits and costs to service users and survivors of sexual assault and rape.


Reality Remix Current Projects

Centre for Dance Research

The 'Reality Remix' project brings together an interdisciplinary team of experts - a fashion designer, artists, researchers, an interactive designer, a software engineer, computer scientist, and a choreographer to address challenges and opportunities that emergent technologies bring to content creation and interaction methods in Mixed, Augmented and Virtual Reality.


Social Choreography network Current Projects

Centre for Dance Research

What does social choreography mean today, and to what extent can this field provide new frameworks to help address the issue of cultural stereotyping of refugees?
Violent military conflict, environmental crises, breakdown of social, racial or ethnic integration, are some of the many reasons why millions of peoples are being displaced across the world. Immigration is regarded today as arguably one of the most pressing political issues by voters and the wider public, and not only in a post-Brexit UK. Whilst the problem of forced migration is typically addressed from within the social sciences (e.g. migration and diaspora studies, sociology, political science, or development studies), little is known about the way in which the movement arts and bodily perspectives are responding to such crises. The gap in knowledge that the network is aiming to address concerns a lack of understanding of embodied socio-choreographic practice at a regional and cross-national level. 


Somatic practice, chronic pain and self-care technology Current Projects

Centre for Dance Research

This network brings together experts from dance and somatic practices, health and digital design to explore the living, sensate and subjectively experienced body in context as a means of understanding chronic pain and self-care strategies. 


Prosody, Morphology, Phonology and Multisyllabic Word Reading Current Projects

Centre for Advances in Behavioural Science

We hope that this project will provide us with further insight of a newly emerging side of literacy research as it incorporates the metalinguistic skill of prosody.


Morphology, phonology and literacy in primary years: Evidence from eye-movements and dynamic assessments. Current Projects

Centre for Advances in Behavioural Science

My PhD research investigates the role of morphological awareness in the literacy development of budding readers. The project will take a closer look at the developmental trajectory of morphological awareness development, as it relates to other literacy skills by testing three different age groups within primary years.
