Visiting Scholars and Students
|Boake, Mr Cuan||Visiting Scholar||
Mr Cuan Boake is currenlty working with Dr Carwyn Frost. This research is on:
- Development of field monitoring techniques, instrumentation and associated data processing for marine energy (wave and tidal energy) projects.
- The work continues the world leading research conducted in Strangford Lough as part of CASE project Tandem Tidal Turbines (3.5) and the Marinet 2 programme.
|Sun, Dr Chunqing||Visiting Scholar||Following the award of the Newton International Fellowship 2018, Dr Sun is completing the second year of his research with Dr Plunkett to establish Late-Pleistocene to Holocene tephrostratigraphic sequence over continental China.||email@example.com|
|Campbell, Dr Brad||Visiting Scholar||Dr Campbell will be carrying out research with Dr Shuttleworth. This will build on the research previously carried out whilst completing his PhD. Part of this research seeks to explore whether internal migratory behaviour is transmitted between generations. Testing this hypothesis is viable in Northern Ireland where internal migratory behaviour is highly relational to religious community background.|
|Maguire, Dr Rena||Visiting Scholar||Dr Maguire is working with Prof Murphy to address the gap of knowledge regarding the relationship between human and equid, at the transition of the Bronze Age to the Iron Age and Iron Age to early medieval period. The research seeks to address these gaps, through a combination of Zooarchaeology, excavation research and material object studies to better understand the travel, trade and animal husbandry aspects of Irish equitation, to detect social firstname.lastname@example.org|
|McKerr, Dr Lynne||Visiting Scholar||
Dr McKerr is working with Professor Murphy on the completion of research based on a project funded by the Royal Irish Academy (Commemoration and identity in post-Plantation communities during the 17th and 18th centuries).
|McLaughlin, Dr Rowan||Visiting Scholar||Dr McLaughlin is working with Prof Malone building on research previously carried out under the ‘FRAGSUS’ ERC FP7 Advanced Grant research project hosted by QUB email@example.com|
|Millar, Dr Gerry||Visiting Scholar||Dr Millar is currently working with Professor Eileen Murphy on a number of research projects relating to 19th century diseases in Ireland.|
|Simms, Dr Mike||Visiting Scholar||
Dr Mike Simms is working with both Dr Ruffell and Prof Reimer. Proposed collaborations include:
- Triassic climate and palaeoenvironments with Dr Ruffell
- Holocene sea level change with Prof Reimer
|Sas, Dr Zoltan||Visiting Scholar||Dr Sas is working with Dr Doherty. Research will look at how before certain raw materials can be allowed in a built environment, it is crucial to assess and if needed control the impact on the indoor living environment. Various building materials and their components will be evaluated from their radon release rate point of view, furthermore the risk of indoor radon level will be estimated.|
|McGeown, Miss Claire||Visiting Student||Miss McGeown is working with Dr Hester. Research is being undertaken on the novel structural health monitoring techniques, including numerical simulations, lab experiments and field firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Fletcher, Miss Rebecca||Visiting Student||Miss Fletcher is a student at Aberdeen University and is currently co-supervised by Prof Rea (Aberdeen University), Dr Newton (Queen's University), Dr Spagnolo and Dr Healy (Aberdeen University). The project is titled 'Ice Streams: Present to Palaeo'.|
|Everard, Miss Annabel||Visiting Student||Miss Everard is a student at Aberdeen University and is currently co-supervised by Dr Schofield (Aberdeen University), Dr Plunkett (Queen's University), Dr Mighall (Aberdeen University), Dr McMullen (Botanæco consultancy) and Dr Timpany (University of Highlands and Islands). This project aims to investigate the palaeoecological history of ancient deciduous woodlands in Scotland and Ireland, with particular emphasis on sub-canopy layers.|
|Allmond, Dr Gillian||Visiting Scholar||
Dr Gillian Allmond is working with Professor Murphy on a project to mark the 175th anniversary of the Great Famine in Ireland. She has completed a background history to 'famine roads' in County Fermanagh and future work will identify and record the surviving stretches of the roads in the modern landscape of County Fermanagh. Gill is also developing a research project on the history and archaeology of children within the asylum system in Northern Ireland in the Victorian and Edwardian periods.
|Bell, Dr David||Visiting Scholar||
Dr Bell is working with Prof Murphy and a number of colleagues within the School. This will include work on:
- the significance of decorative motifs common to a range of Bronze Age artefact types inlcuding metal work and ceramics.
- Assist in the development of a UG module on Cognitive Thinking in relation to archaeological research.
|Boutoille, Dr Linda||Visiting Scholar||
Dr Boutoille is working with Dr Brandherm and a number of other colleagues
|Gentry, Prof Russell||Visiting Scholar||Prof Gentry is currently working with Prof McKinley. Collaboration will be focused on the design and assessment of second-life options for decommissioned wind turbine blades. Prof Gentry will also give lectures on the geometry and composite materials in wind turbine blades. Prof Gentry's expertise in the area of digital design and the use of drone technology will help to further this innovative area of design to be developed at Queen's in collaboration with the Centre for GIS and Geomatics.|
|Kang, Prof Yang||Visiting Scholar||Prof Kang is working with Prof Soutsos. Collaborations will focus on characterising the bond between alkali activated pastes and recycled aggregates.||Y.Kang@qub.ac.uk|
|Hassan, Dr Khaled||Visiting Scholar||
Dr Khaled is working with Dr Nanukuttan, staff in Natural and Built Environment, the Institute for Food Security and the Faculty of EPS at Queen's to help develop particular research interests.
Dr Khaled will assist staff with promoting Masters courses in the following areas:
- Sustainable Construction: energy and water footprint, service life modelling and performance specifications
- Renewable Energy
- Food Security
- Cyber Security
During this time Dr Khaled will also deliver lectures to Level 4 Civil Engineering Students on Infrastructure Management and MSc Construction and Project Management Students on challenges in the Middle East.
