Much of the TRG programme is conducted through PhD studentships - based in Leeds, UCD (Ireland), Camerino (Italy), Milan (Italy) and Pavia (Italy) and supervised by combinations of Leeds-based staff and external co-workers. We aim to start at least one studentship per year.
- Paul Allen (Leeds) - Transitional multiphase flow: the enigmatic behaviour of seafloor landslides.
- Marco Carnevale (Milano, Italy) - Short length scale hybrid event bed heterogeneity: characterisation and impacts on flow modelling.
- Claudio Casciano (Camerino, Italy) - Architectural characterization of an ancient migrating channel levee system in a tectonically confined basin: the case of the Gorgoglione Flysch Formation, Southern Italy.
- Sophie Cullis (Leeds) - Quantitative characterisation and prediction of deep-marine sedimentary architecture and facies heterogeneity through relational databasing.
- Isabel de Cala (Leeds) - Dune cross-stratification in turbidite systems.
- Neal Gunn (Leeds) - The role of contourites in generating long run-out debris flows. An example, offshore Uruguay.
- Luan Ho (Leeds) - Experimental and theoretical study of gravity current dynamics.
- Rob Kelly (Leeds) - Channel sinuosity control on submarine-fan evolution.
- Pierre Müller (Pavia, Italy) - Physical stratigraphy and facies tracts of the Bordighera deep sea fan in the framework of the pre-collisional evolution of the Alpine convergent system.
- Roman Soltan (Leeds, jointly funded TRG/FRG/BSG) - Integrated basin studies: the Carboniferous of NE England.
- Dan Stokes (UCD, Nexen funded) - Hybrid event beds in slope channel settings - Flow processes during deep water slope incision and backfilling.
- Riccardo Teloni (Leeds) - A comparative study of interleaved large volume turbidite and debrite deposits from the Aptian Britannia Sandstone Formation, North Sea, and the middle Miocene Marnoso-arenacea Formation, Central Italy.
