Quantum Field Theory
Honours projects: Projects can be phenomenological or mathematical in character, or the focus may be on technique.
Honours projects: Projects focused on complex systems which are are typically comprised of a large number of interconnected components which interact collectively, leading to emergent behaviour, such as self-organisation, which is not apparent from the properties of the underlying components.
Models of Hadrons & Hadronic Interactions
Honours projects: Projects using models such as NJL, or the MIT bag, to calculate hadron properties, to calculate reactions involving hadrons and to build quark models of atomic nuclei.
Modelling and analysis of cell survival data from hadron therapy
Honours projects: Study honours in physics and help improve the accuracy of cancer treatment planning.

Effective Field Theory
Honours projects: Developing innovative techniques which serve to guide and interpret research at international experimental facilities.
Theoretical High Energy Physics
Honours projects: Available projects include supersymmetry (SUSY), GUTs, dark matter, extra-dimensional models, composite Higgs models, and scale invariant theories.
High-energy Physics Phenomenology
Honours projects: Projects which combine experimental, computational and theoretical physics.
Quantum technologies theory
Honours projects: Study with the Quantum Technologies Theory Group which specialise in applying quantum mechanics to emerging and future technologies.
Honours projects: Projects exploring the change of the properties of protons and neutrons and the impact of this on the dense matter and properties of neutron stars.
