Simulating sludge: a novel approach to visualising anaerobic digestion

Description
After Dr Davide Dapelo completed his degree in theoretical physics in his native Genova, he took an EU-financed research course on renewable energies. This included an industry placement with a company that project-built anaerobic digesters.While there, Davide realised there were ways to improve the anaerobic digestion (AD) mixing process, which gave him the idea for his PhD topic: the application of computer simulation of flow methods to a specific aspect of wastewater treatment. To pursue the idea, he sought out top academics working in this field, one of whom was John Bridgeman, Professor of Environmental Engineering at Birmingham – and as a result left Italy to pursue his academic career in Birmingham.

Einstein's 'spooky' entanglement theory takes us one step closer to 'hearing' the Big Bang

Description
It was an Albert Einstein prediction – the general theory of relativity – that led to the first, much-anticipated detection of gravitational waves (GWs) by a laser detector part-built by scientists at Birmingham. Now, two years later, it's another of Einstein's predictions, quantum theory (ironically, one he tried to discredit) that has been harnessed by a group of physicists, including one from the University, in a bid to make future GW detectors more sensitive to the tiny ripples in the fabric of space-time.
