(2013-10-14)
The Reduced-Moderation Water Reactor (RMWR) is an innovative water-cooled reactor with some of the characteristics of a fast neutron reactor, which can achieve a high conversion ratio of more than 1.0 and a negative void ...
• #### A BEHAVIOURAL DATA APPROACH TOWARDS PREDICTING DIRECT REAL ESTATE MARKETS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM ﻿

(2018-07-21)
In recent years, modern prediction models have evolved to include behavioural data such as user-generated search query data that capture market sentiment and reach beyond the grasp of established macroeconomic indicators. ...
• #### A Comparative Analysis of Education Reform and its Impact on Socio-Economic Reform in the Twentieth Century ﻿

The research project, conceptualized through a comparative historical framework, focuses on an analysis of American and English education policy from 1964 to 2000 with particular emphasis on the inter-relationships between ...
• #### 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 computational biology approach to studying algae-bacterial interactions ﻿

(2018-07-20)
Microalgae have a profound effect on the world due to their large contribution to net carbon fixation. Although they are phototrophic, more than 50% of microalgae are thought to depend on external supply of metabolites ...
• #### 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 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 general catalytic β-C–H carbonylation of aliphatic amines to β-lactams ﻿

(2018-06-02)
Carbonyl compounds are of central importance to organic chemistry and their reactions have been described as the ‘backbone of organic synthesis’. Over recent decades, palladium-catalysed C–H carbonylation reactions have ...
• #### A genetic analysis of molecular traits in skeletal muscle ﻿

(2018-04-28)
Genome Wide Association Studies (GWASs) have identified variants associated with disease that promise to deliver insights into disease aetiology. However, because many GWAS variants lie in non-coding genomic regions, it ...
