Efficient Manufacture of Emulsion Intermediates in Cavity-design Mixers

Ryan Burger
Emulsions are ubiquitous across the process industries and are often utilised in applications where controlled delivery of a key ingredient (e.g. an oil or water soluble compound) is an important consideration. Their functional properties e.g. the rate of absorption or coverage of a surface is generally determined by the size and size distribution of dispersed domains or microstructure. Control over the formulation, process route and type of equipment all influence the resulting microstructure. The focus...

Other people’s children: representations of paid-childcare in Britain, 1867-1908

James Hinks
This thesis critically examines how informal child-care, performed for money, was subject to sustained scrutiny between 1867-1908. This period saw women who took children into their home in exchange for payment being subject to judicial sanction,press comment and legislative intervention. The passage of the 1908 Children Act marked the point at which all women who took in children for money were subjected to legislation for the first time. Existing scholarship on this topic has largely...

Molecular ecological characterization of a honey bee ectoparasitic mite, Tropilaelaps mercedesae.

Xiaofeng Dong
Tropilaelaps mercedesae (small mite) is one of two major honey bee ectoparasitic mite species responsible for the colony losses of Apis mellifera in Asia. Although T. mercedesae mites are still restricted in Asia (except Japan), they may diffuse all over the world due to the ever-increasing global trade of live honey bees (ex. Varroa destructor). Understanding the ecological characteristics of T. mercedesae at molecular level could potentially result in improving the management and control programs....

Creating an Effective Routine Surveillance System for Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis Among Previously Treated Patients in Tanzania

Basra Doulla
Creating an Effective Routine Surveillance System for Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis Among Previously Treated Patients in Tanzania. Introduction: Tuberculosis routine surveillance is an essential tool for scrutinising the effectiveness of TB Programmes and especially for monitoring drug resistance. This study sought to understand the effectiveness of the existing Routine Surveillance System for drug-resistant Tuberculosis amongst previously treated TB patients in Tanzania, identify weaknesses and interventions leading to improvements, and then pilot these interventions. Methods: Both quantitative and...

The Perspectives Study: From evidence to guidance on patient recruitment to clinical research in intensive care units

Bridget Young, Kerry Woolfall, Carrol Gamble, Ingeborg Welters, Lucy Frith & Katie Paddock
WS1 interviews involved: clinician-researchers (chief, principal or co-investigators) who had a role in leading the design and implementation of ICU studies and patient, public involvement (PPI) advocates who have contributed to the design and implementation of ICU studies as co-investigators, research partners, steering group members or advisors. WS3 interviews involved ICU patients and relatives of ICU patients, including a sub-set of relatives of patients who died whilst in ICU and frontline staff who discuss ICU...

Individual and household Life course explanation to entrepreneurial exit

Muntasir Alam
Entrepreneurial exit, a critical stage in the entrepreneurial process, happens when the venture creators disengage from ownership control and decision-making authority of the firm they helped to create. Until now, academic research delineating the role of individual and household level resources in explaining exit (or otherwise) are relatively sparse. Of the limited research that provided a resource-based explanation to exit, hardly any research has investigated the influence of a multitude of different resources on the...

Large-scale functional annotation of individual RNA methylation sites by mining complex biological networks

Xiangyu Wu
Increasing evidences suggest that post-transcriptional RNA modifications regulate essential biomolecular functions and are related to the pathogenesis of various diseases. To date, the study of epitranscriptome layer gene regulation is mostly focused on the function of mediator proteins of RNA methylation limited by laborious experimental procedures, i.e., the readers, writers and erasers. However, there is limited investigation of the functional relevance of individual m6A RNA methylation sites. To address this, we annotated human m6A sites...

Learning from the Past: Exploiting Archives for Historical Water Management Research

Helen Houghton-Foster
This thesis examines the challenges for environmental research in UK archives and presents possible solutions for archivists to implement. It is the result of a collaboration between the University of Liverpool (jointly between the departments of Geography and History) and the Staffordshire Record Office. The result is a multi-disciplinary thesis that unites multiple different fields of research and methods of analysis in order to create solutions and guidance which can support researchers using archives for...

Semi-blind CFO estimation and ICA based equalization for wireless communication systems

Yufei Jiang
In this thesis, a number of semi-blind structures are proposed for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) based wireless communication systems, with Carrier Frequency Offset (CFO) estimation and Independent Component Analysis (ICA) based equalization. In the first contribution, a semi-blind non-redundant single-user Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) OFDM system is proposed, with a precoding aided CFO estimation approach and an ICA based equalization structure. A number of reference data sequences are carefully designed and selected from a pool...
