Silwood and NHM Masters Project proposals

Welcome to the Silwood and NHM Masters project proposal database. This is a live list of projects proposals put forward by staff at Silwood and the NHM as well as staff elsewhere at Imperial College London and at other external project partners.

Supervisors will continue to add projects to this list throughout the first few months of the courses, so do keep checking back! You can search the projects using the box below: simply enter some text and press Search to do a free text search. If you want to search more finely, the search tool also allows you to search on particular details of the project descriptions: you will see these finer search options appear if you click on the search box.
