Unravelling the poverty risk of children with a disability: an empirical inquiry into the role of measurement, mechanisms and policies KU Leuven
Prior studies showed that children with a disability are more likely to grow up poor. This is related to the fact that these families 1) face extra out-of-pocket costs, 2) need to provide more care which impedes parental employment and 3) often have a disadvantaged social background. However, surprisingly little research has been conducted in the social policy literature on the link between childhood disability and child poverty, its ...
Magnetostriction in electrical steel: modelling and development of an accurate opto-electronic measurement method Ghent University
Magnetostriction and magnetic forces are a major cause of vibrations and noise of electromagnetic devices. The measurement of the magnetostriction can either be done by using a direct method, is one of the fundamental issues that will be treated in the proposed project. A second fundamental problem is the mathematical modeling of the irreversible behaviour (hysteresis) of ferromagnetic materials. The development of a new measurement method ...

Emergency measures in situations of life and death: a critical analysis of the practice of quasi-jurisdictional human rights bodies Ghent University
General objective: the research aims, in general, to make a substantial contribution to the scarce existing
socio-juridical research and knowledge on the instrument of urgent measures, as applied by quasi-judicial
organs in the field of international human rights, taking into account the legal instruments, the case-law, the
implementation, and the view of the different actors in the field of the international human rights ...
Measuring linguistic attitudes with auditory affective priming: Attitudinal variation towards varieties of Dutch KU Leuven
The objective of this work is twofold. It sets out to contribute to the study of language attitudes on a methodological as well as a descriptive level. The main goal of the study is the methodological one. Notwithstanding some exceptions (e.g. Preston 1982), quantitative language attitude research has known little methodological innovation since the introduction of the matched-guise technique in the 1960s (Lambert et al. 1960). This relative ...

Novel image processing methods for assessing myocardial energetics from FDG-PET/CT and 4D anatomical imaging KU Leuven
The measurement of 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake by positron emission tomography (PET) is a validated and robust way to investigate myocardial glucose metabolism. However, the use of PET imaging for cardiac applications is challenged by:
- the low spatial resolution of the clinical PET scanners, which results in blurring and does not
allow for accurate quantification of very thin or small structures (partial volume effect, ...
