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.
- Damilola Adekanye (Leeds) - Massively Parallelized Models of Fluid-Solid Multiphase Flow.
- Paul Allen (Leeds) - Transitional multiphase flow: the enigmatic behaviour of seafloor landslides.
- Laura Buehrig (Leeds) - A database-informed approach to the construction of quantitative sedimentological facies and source-to-sink models.
- Marco Carnevale (Milano, Italy) - Short length scale hybrid event bed heterogeneity: characterisation and impacts on flow modelling.
- Adriana Crisostomo Figueroa (Leeds) - Predicting stratigraphic trap integrity in deepwater settings.
- Isabel de Cala (Leeds) - Dune cross-stratification in turbidite systems.
- Marijke de Vet (Hull) - Turbulent-laminar transitions in flows laden with cohesive sediment.
- Sojiro Fukuda (Hull) - Palaeo-Environment Reconstruction from Seafloor Landscapes.
- Dan Tek (Leeds) - Autogenic versus allogenic controls on deep-sea channel evolution.

- Scholarship funded - Leeds. The University has separate scholarship schemes for UK/EU students, and also "international" (non EU) students
- Scholarship funded - non Leeds.
If you have independent access to research funds, we can host you to do a PhD, M.Lit or MSc by research. You may have your own research project in mind. Alternatively, we can work with you to design a project, or can offer fully-framed projects. Examples of candidate projects are shown below (hover mouse over titles for description)
- Controls on hybrid event beds occurrence in deep marine settings: implications for facies and facies architecture prediction
- Scale constraints on the transport of cohesive sediments
- Database and outcrop-based evaluation of mass transport deposit occurrence
- Palaeo-seafloor reconstruction and environmental change
- Pinch-out stratigraphic traps: predicting unconventional trapping mechanisms
- Quantifying the anatomy of clastic deep-marine deposits
