Welcome on my PhD topics web page! If you should be interestedin working on your PhD with me,please contact me by email ()to make anappointment. You will find informationwith respect to the following subjects: 99. Integrated Business Modelling, Expert Dating Algorithms for Crowd-Solving Globally Challenging Problems (11 words, more than 20 PhD topics selected from UN 20130 SDGs, for example)This PhD topic aims to intelligently generate an automatic sound mix out of an unknown set of multi-channel inputs. The input channels can be analysed to determine preferred settings for gain, equalization, compression, reverb, and so on. The research explores the possibility of reproducing the mixing decisions of a skilled audio engineer with minimal or no human interaction. This research has application to live music concerts, remote mixing, recording and postproduction as well as live mixing for interactive scenes. The PhD topics shown here are representative examples of projects offered by our department that are eligible for funding through the London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP). The London DTP offers between 30-40 studentships per year covering all aspects of earth and environmental science, hosted by one of nine different London-based academic institutions including UCL. The research in Baltic TRANSCOAST is organized in 12 PhD topics in three with hydro-dynamic (H), (bio)geochemical (G), and biological (B) focus.These topics are suggestions. Applicants may suggest own topics in their research interest statement. However, the link between the preferred PhD topic and the overall research field of User Centred Social Media should be apparent at all time.
