Dr Codling, jointly appointed between the University's Departments of Mathematical Sciences and Biological Sciences, was successful in the National Environment Research Council's new investigators competition, open to new academics that are within two years of their first appointment.
His grant will involve collaboration with Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science in Lowestoft, the Irish Marine Institute, and the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas.
Dr Codling explains: ‘Problems in fisheries management and the over-exploitation and collapse of European fish stocks is a key issue. A traditional approach to fisheries management is based on assessments that require enormous amounts of data. However, many fisheries have limited or unreliable data, so alternative assessment and management is required.'
'This project will develop an assessment framework that uses empirical fisheries indicators and statistical process control techniques as part of a long-term harvest control rule for the management of fisheries. The theoretical methods developed will also be suitable for managing other natural resources.’
In addition, Dr Codling's grant will pay for a postdoctorate to work in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University for a year.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
