Dr. Stephen Allen is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at the University of Bath. He is an engineer focused on energy and sustainability in the built environment, with professional experience across academia, industry and public policy. He has worked as the Energy Adviser at the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology in Westminster, and as a consultant in industry. Stephen is a joint recipient of the George Stephenson Prize from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (2009) for one of his journal publications, and a member of the Early Career Forum of EPSRC’s Engineering Theme.
I am a EPSRC/BBSRC Innovation Fellow. My research uses computational approaches to gather, integrate and analyse biological big data, including working extensively with next-generation sequencing data. A major part of my work uses network approaches to study pathogenicity in yeast in order to identify novel disease-associated pathways.
I have been involved in seismic research for over 15 years and have published on a diverse range of problems, spanning theoretical seismology, global seismology as well as hydrocarbon, carbon storage and engineering scale problems. My core expertise is in elastic and acoustic waveform simulation of seismic body-waves.
Studied at Bristol University (PhD 1987). Worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory for two years before accepting a lectureship at Sussex University in 1989. Promoted to Professor in 2000 and moved to Sheffield University in 2004. Received five RSC medals and elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2014.
- 2013- Crum Brown Chair of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh.
- 2009- Chair of Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry, University of Edinburgh.
- 2009-14 EPSRC Leadership Research Fellow, University of Edinburgh.
- 2007-09 EaStCHEM Reader in Inorganic Chemistry, University of Edinburgh.
John Bagshaw is a BAE Systems Engineering Fellow, a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and the Royal Aeronautical Society, and a Chartered Physicist and Engineer.
I am a Senior Lecturer in Forensic Analysis from the University of Surrey. I have developed forensic applications for Ion Beam Analysis and mass spectrometry techniques for many years, working with a number of law enforcement agencies.
Dr Laura Baker has 20 years' experience in the Steel Industry including senior leadership roles within Technical, Supply Chain and Manufacturing departments. She has represented the industry at international events and has an excellent understanding of the challenges facing manufacturing and the steel industry supply chain in particular.
