Welcome to the Bath doctoral community! As I discovered this time last year, summer can be a very strange time to start your doctoral journey. The campus feels empty one day and then teeming with 'bright young children' the next depending on which summer school is resident. Academics are deep into their research and you ...more
Irony indeed that the country almost ran out of CO2 the other week, just as the demand for gassy beer was rising. If only there were a simple way of getting the stuff out of the air. If only ...

Organizations increasingly try to regulate our online behaviour both formally and informally. In doing so, they colonize our spheres as private individuals and public citizens. In extreme cases, your employer might even tell you what friends to make on Facebook, which political opinions (not) to express on LinkedIn, or to temper your emotions on Twitter. ...more

I graduated a few days ...more

Good progress has been made internally and externally on the project.
Externally the drainage works are nearing completion and if you have an eagle eye you may see the balustrade currently in situ before it is dismantled to receive its final finish before being returned to site. The cladding has now been installed and awaits its ...more

There are just under one million people now in receipt of Universal Credit. By 2023 there should be, if all goes to plan, up to seven million households in the system. That is a lot of people and a lot of benefit claims still to be processed.
