|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.
|Bottaini, Dr Carlo||Visiting Scholar||
Dr Carlo Bottaini is researcher at the HERCULES Lab (University of Evora, Portugal). He is working with Professor Dirk Brandherm on the study of metals in the later prehistory of the Atlantic world. The research, based on the combination of different analytical techniques, will explore issues related to social dynamics, evolution and movement of knowledge and objects.
|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.|
|O'Mahony, Dr Michael||Visiting Scholar||Dr Michael O’Mahony will be working with Dr Colm Donnelly on a project examining the relationship between the Late-Medieval Irish tower-house and its ancillary buildings. The geographic focus will be on the extensive evidence from the largely Gaelic-Irish territory of Donegal and the Gaelic/Anglo-Irish frontier of Limerick. This project will attempt to reconstruct the original environs of the tower-house complex using archaeological data and contemporary firstname.lastname@example.org|
|O'Neill, Dr John||Visiting Scholar|
|Simms, Dr Mike||Visiting Scholar||
Dr Mike Simms is working with Dr Ruffell on evidence for climate change in the Late Triassic as part of their ongoing investigation of the Carnian Pluvial Episode, and with Prof Reimer on the timing and scale of Holocene sea level change on the east coast of Northern Ireland.
|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 email@example.com|
|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.
|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.|
|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.
