Magnetism with a twist – chiral helimagnets

During the last half-century, thumb gmacauleythe world has witnessed a technological revolution, fuelled by the exponential growth of microelectronics. From the earliest transistor to the latest supercomputer: these devices rely on pushing electrons – small lumps of electrical charge – around circuits. But there is a problem.

Event Structure and Emerging Syntax

Fiona’s research concerns the emergence of structure and shared conventions in language. More specifically, she is interested in the emergence and evolution of mechanisms for marking semantic roles in an event, i.e. who is performing an action and who is being acted upon.

Dimension and Structure in Fractal Forms
thumb Stuart Burrell

Fractals, objects that have fine structure at arbitrarily small scales, appear throughout nature, mathematics and science. Beautiful patterns that are at once simple and complex, they have captured the attention of artists and scientists alike.

 Role of Adipose β-Site Amyloid Precursor Protein Cleaving Enzyme 1 (BACE1) in Insulin Resistancethumb Aimee Buglar Lamb

Aimée’s project will focus on studying the specific role of BACE1 in fat tissues in insulin resistance (IR), as previous studies have suggested that BACE1 modulates insulin sensitivity and blood glucose levels possibly by modulating the inflammatory and immune responses in fat cells.
