Fruit and Veg. vs. the Future is a hybrid board / role-play game about water risks in the UK fresh fruit and vegetable system, aimed at industry stakeholders. The game allows players to put together fruit and vegetable systems and pit them against different future scenarios, to see who the winners and losers are and how we can increase the resilience of the overall supply chain to water related risks. These files contain all the playing boards and materials.

3 Minute Thesis presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018. Contemporary western-style toilets require a large quantity of clean water and an integrated sewage system to operate, but 2.3 billion people remain without access to improved sanitation. For this part of the globe’s population, a waterless and energy-neutral toilet would constitute a solution with high potential. An important piece of this toilet is a technology which dewaters and dries human faeces so that it can be further processed by the system. At the moment, such a technology with low requirements in terms of size, energy and power demands does not exist. This research work concerns the design and development of a technology, which aims at filling this gap. It also deals with the analysis and dissemination of any insights that derived throughout the invention process. These insights can constitute a significant contribution to knowledge for the design community and the concerned development teams, as most of the data of similar nature remain anecdotal or lack of systematic description and explanation. The first part of the PhD focuses on the design, development and testing of a novel drying technology (“dryer”) for in situ, small-scale faecal sludge treatment. The contribution to knowledge of this first part lies on a novel technology (patent pending) of significant value to the operation of the Nano membrane toilet. The second part of the research aims at providing a better understanding of the cognitive processes behind design and scientific discoveries, relying on modern design theory and using the development of the dryer as a case study. More precisely, the invention described in the first part is classified using contemporary design theory and the findings are then linked to other patented designs. The third and last part of the research concerns the design and execution of the first 'Generativity test', which aims at the identification of important characteristics regarding a certain design technique which has been found to be present at many patented technologies, including the dryer. In summary, the research gaps that this work aspires to fill is the lack of suitable drying technology for a waterless and energy-neutral toilet and the lack of theoretical framework to better understand and describe how design can complement science when developing breakthrough innovations.

3 Minute Thesis presented at the Cranfield Doctoral Network Annual Event 2018. Winner of the 3 Minute Thesis competition. The contamination and behaviour of water in aircraft fuel systems remains a significant area of global research interest following several aircraft incidents. Water and particulates in fuel may lead to ice formation. The resulting ice formed may eventually block the fuel filters and feed pipes creating safety problems. In order to engineer a lasting solution to the problem of ice in jet fuel it is important to identify precisely the conditions and features that may exacerbate this phenomenon. This review gives a detailed account of the recent advances and technologies in the literature indicating conditions that might lead to the nucleation of water and ice in aircraft fuel systems. It will develop awareness of the key complexities associated with jet fuel chemistry. Furthermore, the review identifies the significant knowledge gaps that exist in the literature highlighting routes to be explored for future research
