• #### A 16-year record of supraglacial lake extent in West Greenland: analysis of inland expansion and rapid drainage events ﻿

(2016-09-27)
Supraglacial lakes forming and draining on the Greenland are particularly important for understanding the hydrologic control on flow due to their ability to rapidly transport water to the base of the ice sheet and induce ...
• #### A Comparative History of Gender and Factory Labour in Ottoman Bursa and Colonial Bombay, c.1850-1910 ﻿

(2018-04-28)
This thesis explores the gendered dynamics of industrialisation in the late Ottoman Empire and British India. It examines the ways in which gendered notions of skill, waged work, domesticity and technology shaped employment ...
• #### A concentration inequality based statistical methodology for inference on covariance matrices and operators ﻿

(2017-06-23)
In the modern era of high and infinite dimensional data, classical statistical methodology is often rendered inefficient and ineffective when confronted with such big data problems as arise in genomics, medical imaging, ...
• #### A Friendship for Others: Bonhoeffer and Bethge on the Theology and Practice of Friendship ﻿

(2018-05-19)
A Friendship for Others: Bonhoeffer and Bethge on the Theology and Practice of Friendship Preston Parsons This study considers the theology and practice of friendship in Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s academic writing, his ...
• #### A functional study on novel genes involved in regulating aldosterone secretion in normal human zona glomerulosa and in aldosterone-producing adenomas ﻿

(2017-10-04)
Primary aldosteronism is the most common secondary cause of hypertension with a prevalence of about 10%. About half of PA cases are caused by aldosterone-producing adenomas (APA). Two APA subtypes, ZG-like and ZF-like APAs, ...
• #### A Glacial Sedimentary System in Northwest Spitzbergen ﻿

(1991-01-01)
The record of climate change in Signedalen and Krossfjorden, northwest Spitsbergen, since the Late Weichselian glacial maximum, has been constructed using an integrated analysis of lacustrine, terrestrial and marine ...
• #### A multi-facetted approach to investigating theory of mind in corvids ﻿

(2017-07-01)
Theory of mind refers to the ability to attribute mental states to others and to predict their behaviour based on inferences about their mental states, for example their perception, desires, or beliefs. Forty years ago, ...
• #### A Multi-functional Touch Panel for Multi-Dimensional Sensing in Interactive Displays ﻿

(2017-11-01)
This thesis presents a flexible graphene/polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF)/graphene sandwich for three-dimensional touch interactivity. Here, an x-y plane touch is sensed using graphene capacitive elements, while force ...
• #### A near-infrared view of luminous quasars: black hole masses, outflows and hot dust ﻿

(2017-11-01)
Supermassive black holes (BHs) and their host-galaxies are thought to evolve in tandem, with the energy output from the rapidly-accreting BH regulating star formation and the growth of the BH itself. The goal of better ...
• #### A New Infrastructure Demand Model for Urban Business and Leisure Hubs - a case study of Taichung ﻿

Over the last few decades there has been a gradual transformation in both the spatial and temporal patterns of urban activities. The percentage share of non-discretionary travel such as morning rush-hour commuting has been ...
• #### A NOVEL PIPELINE FOR DRUG DISCOVERY IN NEUROPSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS USING HIGH-CONTENT SINGLE-CELL SCREENING OF SIGNALLING NETWORK RESPONSES EX VIVO ﻿

(2016-10-07)
The current work entails the development of a novel high content platform for the measurement of kinetic ligand responses across cell signalling networks at the single-cell level in distinct PBMC subtypes ex vivo. Using ...
• #### A policy for antarctic tourism: conflict or cooperation? ﻿

(1991-01-01)
The Antarctic tourism industry is described and assessed. Tourist numbers are established. The regulatory framework for Antarctic tourism is explained and problems for policy makers are identified. Tourism policies of the ...
• #### A Population Perspective on Physical Activity and Health ﻿

(2017-05-20)
Regular physical activity reduces the risk of many chronic diseases. Consequently, the promotion of it and particular types (e.g. walking and cycling for travel), have become a priority for governments seeking to improve ...
• #### A Simulation Approach to the Study of Bacterial Secretion Proteins ﻿

(2017-07-22)
Knowledge of the structure and dynamics of cellular protein complexes is essential for understanding their functionally relevant interactions. In Gram-negative bacteria, the complex machinery associated with the type II ...
• #### A socio-cultural study exploring Greek and English 11-year-old children's responses to wordless picturebooks ﻿
