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 (first intake October 2019) 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).

            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).

            Call for 2020 PhD Projects Open

            The call for 2020 HetSys PhD projects is now open. The deadline for submissions is 17:00 on 18th October.
