Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PG Cert RPD) programme
As part of your PhD degree, you'll be enrolled on the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PG Cert RPD).
This certificate is designed to support you with your research and rewards you for things you'll do as a research student here.
It'll help you improve skills which are important to professional development and employability:
- the knowledge and intellectual abilities to conduct your research
- the personal qualities to succeed in your research and chosen career
- the standards, requirements and conduct of a professional researcher in your discipline
- working with others and communicating the impact of your research to a wide range of audiences
All you have to do is plan these activities alongside your doctorate, documenting and reflecting your journey to success along the way.
Raindrop Erosion of Hybrid Coatings for Wind Turbines (SPIRE2 Tribology Funded PhD)
The object of this work is to investigate the fundamental mechanisms of raindrop erosion of coatings for wind turbines. Leading edge erosion of turbine blades is a critical materials performance issue.

Computational Analysis of Polymeric Turbulent Boundary Layers
The aim of this project is to apply a mesoscopic approach to polymeric turbulent boundary layer flows and make some first, yet decisive, steps in understanding the physics and algorithmics of fully-coupled polymeric boundary layer turbulence.
Computational Analysis of Superfluid Turbulent Boundary Layers
The purpose of this project is to extend previous homogeneous, isotropic superfluid turbulence theoretical studies to superfluid boundary layer flows towards understanding the physics and algorithmics of superfluid boundary layer turbulence.
Modelling the effect of the electric double layer on electron transfer kinetics
This project will combine recent theories for the influence of charge correlations on the structure of the electric double layer with a simple quantum description of charge transfer to to develop a new model for electrochemical reactions.
Developing a multiscale description of complex fluids from the molecular to the continuum scales
This ambitious project attempts to build a single, unified description of complex fluids that incorporates molecular-level detail but can be applied on a wide range of length and time scales that extends to the continuum scale.
High fidelity Direct Numerical Simulation of alternative fuel flames
The aim of this project is to conduct high fidelity parametric Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) studies of the turbulent combustion of syngas fuel mixtures with air.
A tensor network approach to the quantum many body problem
A shared PhD between Strathclyde and ICFO that will address collective emergence in the framework of quantum many-body systems described through tensor networks.
