TIMAEUS is a digital art studio environment that enables creation of personalised 3-dimensional sculptures built with expanding spherical volumes or interconnected tetrahedra and possibly other atomic blocks in the future. These sculptures can be cus... Read More

Climate pioneership and leadership in structurally disadvantaged maritime port cities (2018)
Journal Article
Wurzel, R., Moulton, J., Osthorst, W., Mederake, L., Deutz, P., & Jonas, A. E. G. (2018). Climate pioneership and leadership in structurally disadvantaged maritime port cities. Environmental Politics, 28(1),

This article assesses innovative climate governance in small-to-medium-sized structurally disadvantaged cities (SDCs) which have remained an under-researched subject area. Considering their deeply ingrained severe economic and social problems it woul... Read More

Transcranial magnetic stimulation over contralateral primary somatosensory cortex disrupts perception of itch intensity (2018)
Journal Article
Jones, O., Schindler, I., & Holle, H. (in press). Transcranial magnetic stimulation over contralateral primary somatosensory cortex disrupts perception of itch intensity. Experimental Dermatology,

Itch, a complex unpleasant sensation causing the desire to scratch, results from the activity of a network of brain regions. However, the specific functional contributions of individual regions within this network remains poorly understood. We invest... Read More

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Implication for Drug Metabolism on Assisted Reproductive Techniques—A Literature Review (2018)
Journal Article
Reyes-Muñoz, E., Sathyapalan, T., Rossetti, P., Shah, M., Long, M., Buscema, M., …Vitale, S. G. (in press). Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Implication for Drug Metabolism on Assisted Reproductive Techniques—A Literature Review. Advances in Therapy, doi:10.1007/s12325-018-0810-1

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects 6–10% of women and could be considered one of the most common endocrine alterations in women of reproductive age. The syndrome is characterized by several hormonal and metabolic alterations, including insulin... Read More

Using mussel as a global bioindicator of coastal microplastic pollution (2018)
Journal Article
Li, J., Lusher, A., Rotchell, J. M., Company, S. D., Turra, A., Bråte, I. L. N., …Shi, H. (2018). Using mussel as a global bioindicator of coastal microplastic pollution. Environmental pollution, doi:10.1016/j.envpol.2018.10.032

The ubiquity and high bioavailability of microplastics have an unknown risk on the marine environment. Bio-monitoring should be used to investigate biotic impacts of microplastic exposure. While many studies have used mussels as indicators for marine... Read More

Powerful turbidity currents driven by dense basal layers (2018)
Journal Article
Paull, C. K., Parsons, D., Simmons, S. M., Talling, P. J., Maier, K. L., Xu, J., …Coordinated Canyon Team, M. (2018). Powerful turbidity currents driven by dense basal layers. Nature communications, 9(1), doi:10.1038/s41467-018-06254-6

Seafloor sediment flows (turbidity currents) are among the volumetrically most important yet least documented sediment transport processes on Earth. A scarcity of direct observations means that basic characteristics, such as whether flows are entirel... Read More

Remaking the world in our own image: Vulnerability, resilience and adaptation as historical discourses (2018)
Journal Article
Bankoff, G. (in press). Remaking the world in our own image: Vulnerability, resilience and adaptation as historical discourses. Disasters, doi:10.1111/disa.12312

A warming climate and less predictable weather patterns, as well as an expanding urban infrastructure susceptible to geophysical hazards, make the world an increasingly dangerous place, even for those living in high‐income countries. It is an opportu... Read More

A box particle filter method for tracking multiple extended objects (2018)
Journal Article
De Freitas, A., Mihaylova, L., Gning, A., Schikora, M., Ulmke, M., Angelova, D., & Koch, W. (2017). A box particle filter method for tracking multiple extended objects. IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, 1-1. doi:10.1109/taes.2018.2874147

Extended objects generate a variable number of multiple measurements. In contrast with point targets, extended objects are characterized with their size or volume, and orientation. Multiple object tracking is a notoriously challenging problem due to... Read More

Leaching behaviour of co-disposed steel making wastes: Effects of aeration on leachate chemistry and vanadium mobilisation (2018)
Journal Article
Hobson, A. J., Stewart, D. I., Mortimer, R. J., Mayes, W. M., Rogerson, M., & Burke, I. T. (2018). Leaching behaviour of co-disposed steel making wastes: Effects of aeration on leachate chemistry and vanadium mobilisation. Waste Management, 81, 1-10. doi:10.1016/j.wasman.2018.09.046

Steelmaking wastes stored in landfill, such as slag and spent refractory liners, are often enriched in toxic trace metals (including V). These may become mobile in highly alkaline leachate generated during weathering. Fresh steelmaking waste was char... Read More

Knowledge and use of sterile water injections amongst midwives in the United Kingdom: A cross-sectional study (2018)
Journal Article
Lee, N., Jomeen, J., Mårtensson, L. B., Emery, V., & Kildea, S. (2018). Knowledge and use of sterile water injections amongst midwives in the United Kingdom: A cross-sectional study. Midwifery, 68, 9-14. doi:10.1016/j.midw.2018.10.001

Background The use of sterile water injections (SWI) for the relief of pain in labour is popular amongst midwives in countries such as Sweden and Australia. Anecdotal reports suggest the procedure is used less commonly in the United Kingdom (UK) and... Read More
