A Radical Feminist Analysis of Women’s Experiences of Body-Searching in Prisons in England.

Amy Hughes-Stanley
Despite changes to strip searching policy as spearheaded by the Corston Report (2007), there is limited academic research regarding women’s experiences of body-searching within prisons in England. In order to address this gap in knowledge, this research was concerned with a radical feminist analysis of women’s experiences of body-searching within prisons in England. To this end, the research was focussed upon an analysis of four key searching practices: strip-searching, intimate-searching, rub-down-searching, and searches using technology....

Merchants and Crisis in the Bristol-West India Sugar Trade, 1783-1802

Peter Buckles
This study focuses on the Bristol-West India sugar trade during the last two decades of the eighteenth century. It uses a case study of Bristol merchants Tobin & Pinney, who were importing sugar from Nevis, St Kitts, and other islands, in this period. Their letters are used as the basis of a qualitative analysis, which is backed up with reference to letters sent by James Sutton, Thomas Harris, and John Fisher Weare – all Bristol...

Strengthening the midwifery workforce in fragile contexts: a mixed methods study from Ituri province, Democratic Republic of Congo

Amuda Baba
Skilled and motivated health workers are important to delivering quality healthcare. Ensuring their availability and equitable distribution is a key priority. Low- and middle-income countries are experiencing challenges in relation to the maternal health workforce. This situation is worse in fragile and conflict affected states. The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has very high maternal mortality rates and a serious shortage of qualified skilled birth attendants. Ituri Province, in North-Eastern DRC is a fragile setting...

Intensity-dependency and plasticity of perceived audio-visual simultaneity: behavioural and neural correlates

Ryan Horsfall
The perception of simultaneity and temporal order of audio-visual stimuli is vital in understanding which sensory information emanates from the same physical events. Two tasks commonly used to assess the relative perceptual latencies of audio-visual stimuli are the simultaneity judgement and temporal order judgement tasks, both of which provide an estimate of the point of subjective simultaneity (PSS), which reflects the temporal stimulus offset (typically in milliseconds) where simultaneity is perceived. These two estimates, perhaps...

Exclusive Observables to NLO and Low x PDF Phenomenology at the LHC

Christopher Flett
At present, the Parton Distribution Functions~(PDFs) for the quarks and gluons of QCD extracted in global fitting analyses suffer from large uncertainties, particularly at low $x$ and low scales. This is mainly a reflection of the lack of experimental data constraints in this kinematical regime. In this thesis, due to its enhanced sensitivity to the gluon PDF, we will study the exclusive production of heavy vector mesons $V$, measured recently in ultra peripheral $pp$ collisions...

The impact of continuous glucose monitoring on the management of people with cystic fibrosis-related diabetes

Aileen Toner
Background Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) is the most common comorbidity found in people with cystic fibrosis (pwCF). CFRD is associated with increased adverse outcomes and burden of treatment in pwCF as well as reduced quality of life. People with CFRD (pwCFRD) must measure their blood glucose levels several times per day to monitor their diabetes and so that treatment can be tailored to individuals. Continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMS) are a relatively new technology that...

Exploring and Enhancing Organizational Learning Capability in Company X

Uloma Diriyai
Abstract The purpose of this qualitative study was to use action research to improve learning capabilities in teams. This research was conducted in a privately run waste management company with 15 supervisors, who led teams with sizes ranging from 4 - 37 workers from two departments in the company's operations section. The data was collected through in-depth interviews and reports submitted by the supervisors. The data were analyzed to ascertain the exhibition and enhancement of...

Hidden Probabilistic One-Counter Automata

Mehmet Kurucan
This thesis furthers the ongoing study of devising faster algorithms for the learning problem of infinite-state systems. We examine the Hidden Probabilistic One-Counter Machine (HP1CA) model, a natural extension of both Probabilistic One-Counter Automata (P1CA) and Hidden Markov Model (HMM) in this thesis. HP1CAs allow for the quadratic time complexity of learning the parameters of the model based on observational data. This gives them a big advantage over other infinite-state systems, e.g., probabilistic pushdown automata...

Being a Foreign Professor of EFL in Japan: Administrative Work and Internationalization of Higher Education

Harlan Kellem
This study investigated the lived experiences of foreign English-language professors working at higher education institutions (HEI) in Japan. Rather than being a new development in Japanese higher education (HE), internationalization runs through the entire history of the modern period. Traditional education practices in Japan were overhauled and redesigned starting at the beginning of the Meiji period (1868). Leaders such as Ito Hirobumi, Mori Arinori, and Guido Verbeck, imported the structure and content of what became...

Enhancing Sensor Performance with Statistical Data Analytics

James Wright
This thesis examines the use of Automatic Identification System (AIS) information to generate a picture of maritime activity. It derives suitable methods to produce tracks of vessel movements, both in littoral and open-ocean scenarios, removing ambiguities and highlighting doppelg�anger. The thesis then goes on to describe techniques to improve our understanding of maritime activities through the extraction of individual vessel behaviours and the generation of models describing normal behaviours to highlight abnormalities.
