Sam is a PhD student at the BRE Centre for Fire Safety Engineering studying techniques for modelling fire spread in informal urban environments, predominantly in Kenya, with a view to developing fire risk quantification methods.
The School of Engineering seeks to appoint a Research Associate from October 1st 2019 in the Institute for Materials and Processes (IMP) for four projects: rePLAM and DiElasto, both funded by the EPSRC Centre for Advanced Materials and Renewable Energy Generation (CAMREG); plus ATP and TP-RTM.
The School of Engineering is seeking to recruit an enthusiastic Wet Laboratory Technician to join a highly skilled technical services team supporting a diverse and expanding research and teaching academic unit. The role provides support for teaching, research and undergraduate/postgraduate projects in the Environmental Laboratories in the School.
Dr Rory Hadden has been working with engineers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Maryland, USA, the US Forest Service, and New Jersey Forest Fire Service to observe the behaviour of forest fires from within using a 360-degree water-cooled camera. The cutting-edge equipment provides scientists and engineers with the ability to see inside prescribed fires and potentially wildfires using virtual reality technologies together with footage captured using the 360-degree camera.
Nikolai Gerasimov, a postgraduate researcher in the School’s BRE Centre for Fire Safety Engineering, has won a Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers (WCSIM) research grant for an innovative advance in fire performance testing. The awards are given in recognition of projects which involve innovative scientific development, and enable recipients to become Society of Instrument Maker (SIM) Scholars.
