Featured Supervisors and available topics

These supervisors are among our most active contributors to the programme, they would like to supervise a DTP student in 2017.

These supervisors have received great feedback from our current students on their various contributions to the programme but have not yet been matched with a DTP student for a full research project.  We therefore recommend them to you for particular consideration when you are thinking about what project you might wish to undertake with the DTP.  They have been good enough to give some more specific examples of the types of projects you could carry out under their supervision.
