Massively parallel reeb computation

Project description

One of the established techniques for analysing large data sets is copmutational topology, in particular Reeb analysis of scalar fields using the contour tree. Recent work has extended this in two directions, by building massively parallel algorithms for contour tree construction, and by computing bivariate analogues of the contour tree, the Reeb space and its quantised approximation, the Joint Contour Net. 

This project will aim to build on these directions by developing massively parallel algorithms for the Reeb Space/ Joint Contour Net.

Entry requirements

Applications are invited from candidates with a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2:1), and/ or a Master's degree in a relevant subject. We also recognise relevant industrial and academic experience.

How to apply

Formal applications for research degree study should be made online through the university's website. Please state clearly in the research information section of your application, the name of the PhD you wish to apply for is 'Massively parallel reeb computation' as well as Dr Hamish Carr as your proposed supervisor. In the funding section, please state 'School of Computing Funded Studentships' as your sponsor.

If English is not your first language, you must provide evidence that you meet the University’s minimum English Language requirements.

We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates.  All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
