Members of the group are involved in several funded research projects awarded by research councils and international organisations.

Our vibrant research community organises a rich and regular series of external and internal seminar presentations throughout the year.

As a PhD student you will have the opportunity to present your research to colleagues in an informal and encouraging setting.
