ALMA – The key to the Sun’s coronal heating problem.
ID: 682462
Start date: 2016-09-01, End date: 2021-08-31
How are the outer layers of the Sun heated to temperatures in excess of a million kelvin? A large number of heating mechanisms have been proposed to explain this so-called coronal heating problem, one of the fundamental questions in contemporary solar physics. It is clear...

The Economics and Politics of Conservation
ID: 683031
Start date: 2016-08-01, End date: 2021-07-31
The UN’s approach to climate policy is to focus on national emission caps for greenhouse gases. Most of the economic theory on environmental agreements is also studying such a demand-side approach, even though it is well known that such an approach has several flaws...

Quantum Black Holes: A macroscopic window into the microstructure of gravity
ID: 681908
Start date: 2016-09-01, End date: 2021-08-31
The thermodynamic behavior of black holes is a precious clue in unravelling the microscopic structure of quantum gravity.High precision computations of quantum black hole entropy provide a new window into the fundamental microscopic theoryof gravity and its deviations from...

Dissecting the cellular mechanics of contact inhibition of locomotion
ID: 681808
Start date: 2016-09-01, End date: 2021-08-31
Our aim is to dissect the mechanisms of contact inhibition of locomotion (CIL), a process whereby migrating cells collide and repel each other, as it is now clear that CIL is pivotal to understanding embryogenesis and pathologies such as cancer. We have developed an in vivo...

Indigenous Communities, Land Use and Tropical Deforestation
ID: 681518
Start date: 2016-11-01, End date: 2021-10-31
Tropical deforestation is an important contributor to climate change, through the release of significant amounts of carbon in the atmosphere. The main proximate cause of deforestation in tropical regions is agricultural expansion, followed by timber extraction. The general...

Search for a new form of matter: the sterile neutrino
ID: 682474
Start date: 2016-06-01, End date: 2021-05-31
The goal of this proposal is to search for an entirely new kind of matter. This type of matter called a sterile neutrino doesn’tinteract with known particles and can only manifest itself through quantum mixing with the three neutrinos of the standardmodel, the prevailing...

Groups and Violence: A Micro-sociological Research Programme
ID: 683133
Start date: 2016-09-01, End date: 2021-08-31
The Group Violence research programme aims to understand how group behaviour affects the likelihood and severity of violence in public space. While the prevailing social scientific focus remains on individual perpetrators and background factors, the empirical reality of public...

Finance/Security practice after 9/11: Following the Money from Transaction to Trial
ID: 682317
Start date: 2016-09-01, End date: 2021-08-31
The aim of FOLLOW is to understand and analyse the security practices that render financial transactions into security intelligence, into court evidence. The novel approach is to map the path of the suspicious financial transaction as a ‘chain of translation.’ I ask what...

Children and social robots: An integrative framework
ID: 682733
Start date: 2017-01-01, End date: 2021-12-31
Robots used to be made for labor; now, they are increasingly also made for relationships. Social robots can learn from us, teach us, play with us, and assist us. With the market for social robots expected to grow substantially in the next 20 years, social robots are likely to...

Consequences of out-group conflict
[PROJECT] Outgroup - Consequences of out-group conflict
ID: 682253
Start date: 2016-07-01, End date: 2021-06-30
The aim of this project is to determine the proximate and ultimate consequences of a fundamental but neglected aspect of sociality: out-group conflict. In a wide range of social species, from ants to humans, group members invest considerable defensive effort against individual...
