I have a MChem (with Honours) degree in Chemistry and a PhD in Biomedical Materials, both from the University of Manchester. I have worked in both Industrial/Commercial and Academic sectors developing and researching medical devices and novel therapies. I currently work in ophthalmic diseases and am interested in other applications.
Dr Hanley obtained his PhD at the Department of Process and Chemical Engineering, UCC in 2011. He then moved to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Imperial College London to pursue postdoctoral research. In 2014, he began his new role as Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Edinburgh.
Mike Hannon is Professor of Chemical Biology at the University of Birmingham. His research interests span across the disciplines of chemistry and the health and life sciences, with a focus on therapy, imaging and diagnosis.
Mark Harding gained a BSc in chemistry from Kent University and then a D.Phil in physical chemistry from Oxford University. Throughout his career, Mark has taken positions of increasing responsibility for delivering sustainable competitive advantage through innovation and technology development. He has held roles managing research and multi-disciplinary product development departments. Additionally, he has gained experience in corporate development through strategic investment in start-up businesses. Mark has a broad skill base enhanced by a secondment to a marketing/business leadership position and an MBA. He has worked in the USA and Germany, returning to the UK in 2016 to work for De La Rue.
Dr Colin Hare joined the University of Surrey as a lecturer in Chemical Engineering in February 2016. He obtained his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Leeds in 2010, where he developed a method to predict particle breakage during agitated drying of crystallised solids.
I have a PhD in atmospheric science, and I am interested in the role the land surface plays in the climate system. My past research focused on reducing uncertainty in the land carbon sink, and the sensitivity of carbon stored in vegetation and soils to climate change.
As a mathematician, I have always been passionate about biological and medical problems. The EPSRC Postdoctoral fellowship offers me the independence to develop my ideas and form a research program that can work towards bridging models and data, using a variety of techniques.

I received my PhD in Chemistry from Nottingham University in 2003 before joining Surrey University (Electrical & Electronic Engineering) as a research assistant, and the award of a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship (2007-2012). In 2008 I transferred to Warwick Chemistry, where I am currently an associate professor.
Stephen Hawker CB is a former senior member of the United Kingdom intelligence and security community. After leaving government service he worked as an independent consultant providing insight to government and the commercial sector on national security issues.
I received my PhD in 2006. After two postdoctoral positions in the states, I came to the University of York. In 2011, I was awarded a Heilbronn Research Fellowship, funded by Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, and a five year EPSRC fellowship, which I held in Bristol, before returning to York in 2013.
After receiving my PhD from the University of Sydney, I moved to the University of Oxford in 2012, holding a Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 Research Fellowship and subsequently a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship. In 2016 I started my independent research career as an EPSRC Early Career Fellow.
Dr Liz Heidrich is Lecturer and Research Fellow in Environmental Engineering at Newcastle University. Her main research interests involve the development of bioelectrochemical systems and extracting value from wastewater. She is particularly driven to understand the fundamental biological and thermodynamic properties of these and other systems, using this to implement pilot scale reactors in real industrial settings.
Following a MEng in Environmental Engineering at Cardiff University, I undertook my PhD at University College London (UCL), Mechanical Engineering with BP, remaining at UCL as a Senior Research Associate. I enjoy working with researchers and industry across disciplines, with my interests including the design of future fuels, co-combustion, and fuels from wastes.
Since 2006, I have been a group leader at the University of Exeter, and was promoted to the position of Associate Professor in 2012. With eight years experience since my PhD I am very much in the “early career” stage.
I am a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. I received my PhD from Imperial College (2006) and my BEng from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (2002). My research interests are in nucleation and crystallisation and particle surface properties.
I graduated from Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg and continued my doctoral studies at the University of Konstanz, where I was awarded a PhD in Theoretical Physics. This was followed by postdoctoral appointments at the University of Edinburgh and University College London. In 2012 I joined the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh. In 2017 I joined the Department of Physics at the University of Strathclyde.
Professor Winfried Hensinger is a Professor of Quantum Technologies at the University of Sussex where he heads the Sussex Ion Quantum Technology Group and the Sussex Centre for Quantum Technologies. Hensinger work on developing practical quantum computers and portable quantum sensors. Hensinger is also chairman and chief scientist of Universal Quantum, a full stack quantum computing company.
Johannes Herrnsdorf received the Diploma in Physics from ETH Zürich in 2008 and the PhD in Physics from the University of Strathclyde in 2012. He has worked on inorganic and organic semiconductor optoelectronics in the visible, ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths. Since 2012 he focused on high speed Gallium-Nitride light-emitting diodes.
After my PhD at the University of Nijmegen in 2009, I took up a Rubicon Fellowship at the University of Oxford and Caltech. My work was awarded the 2012 Birkhoff-von Neumann prize. In 2013 I was awarded the EPSRC Early Career Research Fellowship, and in 2015 I joined the University of Edinburgh.
