Investigating Tectonism-Erosion-Climate-Couplings
ID: 316966
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-06-30
Tectonics and climate are interdependent. The tectonics of orogens are moderated by climate through erosion. Exposure of rock by tectonics or erosion is critical to the feedback which governs changes in global climate, whilst topography influences rainfall. The principle obje...

Diasporic Constructions of Home and Belonging
ID: 289672
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2015-10-31
All over the world, stable concepts of home and belonging have, for a variety of reasons, become the exception rather than the rule. This has led to dramatic cultural, social and political changes and challenges. The study of diaspora and migration has therefore evolved into ...

Differential role of atypical Rho GTPases Miro-1 and Miro-2 for controlling mitochondrial dynamics and transport
ID: 913033
Start date: 2017-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Regulated transport of mitochondria is essential for providing ATP spatio-temporaly to power nerve cell function and calcium buffering during release of neurotransmitters or post-synaptic receptor activation. The major player of this transport machinery is Mitochondrial Rho G...

Black Holes, Superstrings, and Holography
[PROJECT] BLACKHOLEHOLOGRAM - Black Holes, Superstrings, and Holography
ID: 908899
Start date: 2010-10-18, End date: 2011-10-17
"This project aims to understand certain quantum aspects of black hole physics, in particular its entropy and the degrees of freedom associated with the horizon. The many states in which a black hole can exist can be understood through a ""hologram"" living in one dimension l...

Pedestrian pre-crash reactions and their effects on crash outcomes
ID: 909605
Under perceived risk such as an imminent pedestrian accident, basic human survival instinct can result in sudden involuntary reactions which eventually affect muscle activity, posture and location just before and during the pedestrian impact. Consequently, pedestrian kinemati...

Thermo-acoustic and aero-acoustic nonlinearities in green combustors with orifice structures
ID: 316654
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
"Combustion instabilities represent a serious problem for combustion-driven devices, such as gas turbine engines and domestic burners. These instabilities can cause intense pressure oscillations, which in turn causes excessive structural oscillations, fatigue and even catastr...
