Warwick is serving up a Slice of Science this weekend

Have you ever wondered whether there were any other planets we could live on, or considered what happens after you have put that little stick up your nose for your COVID test? Fancy learning about slime or brain science – or wondered ‘exactly what is a tardigrade’? All the answers will be served – along with a cup of tea and slice of cake – at the University of Warwick’s Slice of Science event on Sunday (13 March).


New health economic framework to help assess what might be required to eliminate African sleeping sickness by 2030

Several diseases have been earmarked for elimination or eradication based on factors such as feasibility, lives saved and the possibility of long-run cost-savings. The cost of elimination strategies, however, can become very high as you approach zero transmission. An international group of researchers have created a new health economic framework that supports decision makers and funders in understanding the resources required to achieve the World Health Organization’s (WHO) goal of eliminating sleeping sickness by 2030.


Aircraft engine noise pollution to be reduced thanks to novel maths of aero-acoustic simulations

Computer simulations are used every day in engineering; however, Dr Ed Brambley will be looking at the maths behind the next generation of novel simulations, which can be used to reduce aircraft engine noise, thanks to a grant from the EPSRC.

Metal forming to be cleaner and greener thanks to UKRI fellowship

The future of smart metal forming will be investigated by Dr Ed Brambley at the University of Warwick thanks to his award of a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship. The fellowship enables him to perform blue-skies research in mathematical modelling in continuum solid mechanics and plasticity, the outcome of which could be used to provide predictive theoretical models to make industrial metal forming greener and cleaner.
