EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems - HetSys

HetSys CDT

HetSys is a new EPSRC-supported Centre for Doctoral Training. It recruits enthusiastic students (second intake October 2020) from across the physical sciences who enjoy using their mathematical skills and thinking flexibly to solve complex problems. By developing these skills HetSys trains people to challenge current state-of-the-art in computational modelling of heterogeneous, ‘real world’ systems across a range of research themes such as nanoscale devices, new catalysts, superalloys, smart fluids, laser-plasma interactions etc.

HetSys is built around a closely knit, highly collaborative team of academics from five science departments at Warwick with a strong track record in leading large projects. With its project partners HetSys develops talented, energetic PhD students to push boundaries in this exciting field. The students have the potential to inspire new ideas, approaches and innovation and become future leaders in developing new technologies. HetSys builds on Warwick’s Centre for Scientific Computing (CSC) and the Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling (WCPM).

Read more about the HetSys training programme and have a look at our current PhD Projects and how to apply.

Duncan Lockerby and James Sprittles develop theory to predict the lifespan of liquid droplets

Researchers at the University of Warwick have developed a new understanding of how liquids evaporate into vapour, pointing to potential applications for engineering design. A summary is highlighted on the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) website.

Welcome to Albert Bartok-Partay

Welcome to new Assistant Professor Dr Albert Bartok-Partay, who is a joint appointee between Physics and Engineering. Albert will be giving the WCPM/CSC seminar next Monday (7th Oct).

HetSys at British Science Festival Family Day

The HetSys CDT took part in its first outreach event as part of the University of Warwick's Family Day on 14th September 2019 in association with the British Science Festival, with a stall where visitors could explore how predictive modelling can help improve human life. Thanks to Mohad Mousavi-Nezhad for organising!

Earlier in the British Science Festival week on Tuesday 10th September Becky Notman gave a talk "Skin Deep" on her research on modelling skin.
