Efficiency Enhancement of Class-A Foams by Means of Metal Oxide Nanoparticles for Self-Organising Swarms of Autonomous UAVs to Fight Wildfires Funded

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

The aim of this project is to design an efficient suppressant to be carried by autonomous firefighting UAVs. Nanoparticles will be incorporated into Class-A foams to further enhance their cooling and coating actions whilst potentially also having a catalytic effect. Nanoparticles will be synthesised, characterised and incorporated to the foam. 


Calcined clays as a reactive alternative to fly ash as a binder in Portland cement concrete Funded

Centre for the Built and Natural Environment

A fully-funded PhD studentship in partnership with BRE Trust is available to study the use of naturally occurring clays as reactive (pozzolanic) materials for low carbon cement production.


Li-ion cells instrumentation: using optical fibre NanoPlasmonic sensing for in-situ chemical battery diagnostics Funded

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

Coventry University is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a (fully-funded) PhD studentship. This is a Li-ion battery diagnostics oriented PhD project, in close collaboration with a Swedish industrial partner Insplorion.


Optimising the nanoscale behaviour of novel materials for energy applications Funded

Institute for Future Transport & Cities

This project aims to understand and optimise the behaviour of a material at the nanoscale by studying the doping and defect processes and controlling the diffusion of novel smart materials, specifically for energy­ related applications.


Material monitoring for process control in the roll forming process Funded

Institute for Future Transport & Cities | Cotutelle Programme

This PhD project is part of the Cotutelle arrangement between Coventry University, UK and Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia. The successful applicant will spend 2 years at Deakin and 1.5 years at Coventry, with a supervision team drawn from the two Universities.
