Cyanobacteria are photosynthetic microorganisms found in a variety of environments, including marine water bodies. Some species are able to perform biomineralization, producing minerals such as calcium carbonate (CaCO3) that may act as biocement. The biomineralization capability of cyanobacteria has already been explored in the development of...

This project presents a response to the pressing issue of women's safety in public spaces, particularly in Latin American cities. Women worldwide are disproportionately affected by safety issues and fear in urban environments. I explore ways in which public spaces can enhance perceptions of safety and freedom instead. Based on extensive four...

The building sector is a big contributor to environmental problems. It is responsible for the extraction of 24% of earths raw materials, it generates 40% of total waste and 40% of the total energy use comes from the built environment. The building industry focusses on production rather than lifespan, leading to materials not being separable....

The growing consumption of fossil energy resources increases greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). To meet the industry sector's target of reducing GHG emissions by 49% in 2030, relative to the levels in 1990, there is a need for energy storage. Energy storage offers a potential solution to enhance the utilization of renewable energy, by addressing...

Background: Despite over a century’s worth of technical improvements, the longterm survivability associated with orthopedic implants continues to fall short. In contrast to earlier designs, implant failure is no longer caused by structural failure of the implant itself. Rather, it results from the implant’s long-term detrimental effects on the...
