I started my academic career at Manchester, obtaining my PhD from the Physics Department of the University of Manchester's Institute of Science and Technology in 2005. I then began a post-doctoral position based at the STFC Daresbury Laboratory. In 2008 I moved back to the University to undertake a PDRA following which I was awarded an EPSRC Fellowship.
Duncan is Head of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde.
Patrick Grant became Cookson Professor of Materials in 2004 at the University of Oxford, is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (FIMMM), and was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng) in 2010.
Claire is a Deputy Director at EPSRC. She is responsible for EPSRC's Promoting Excellence in Research Delivery Plan priority, whereby EPSRC is focussing on a number of research delivery funding vehicles, particularly in relation to the fundamental research endeavour, to maintain and enhance the UK's ability to remain a world leader in engineering and physical sciences research and the technologies derived from it. Notably Claire has responsibility for Big Ideas, New Horizons and Centres of Excellence.
I studied Chemistry at Durham University, gaining an MSci in 2001 and my PhD in 2005, before going on to work as a postdoc at the University of Bristol. I was made a Leverhulme Trust Early Career fellow in 2009 before starting a EPSRC CAF in 2011.
Dr Rylie Green joined the ICL Bioengineering department in 2016. She received her PhD (Biomedical Engineering) from the University of New South Wales, Australia in 2008. Dr Green's research has been focused on developing bioactive conducting polymers for application to medical electrodes, with a specific focus on neuroprostheses.
In this Leadership Fellowship I am using high pressures and temperatures, to synthesize and study novel states of matter. I aspire to create and study novel dissipationless quantum states never observed before, namely a metallic superconducting super-fluid, in hydrogen and hydrogen rich systems using extreme conditions as a tool.
I completed my DPhil in Oxford in 2008 before undertaking postdoctoral and Research Fellow positions at Oxford, Durham and Princeton. I am now a Royal Society University Research Fellow and EPSRC Fellow in Oxford’s Mathematical Institute and a regular collaborator and lecturer at Princeton University.
Imperial College London
I moved to the UK in 2000 as a Marie Curie Fellow and worked on advanced laser processes for the semiconductor and photovoltaic industry. In 2009 I completed an MSc in Sustainable Energy Futures at Imperial College London followed by a UKERC funded PhD on the role of storage in future energy systems.
I have already developed to be a leading expert in application of network modelling and reliability analyses to power system economics, as evidenced by nine IEEE journal publications in this area between 2011-2013.
I am Research Fellow at Imperial College London. I worked at GE Global Research Centre as a Consulting Engineer before joining Imperial. My research focuses on the analysis and technology to support a low carbon electrical power network, especially renewable energy conversion, control, and network integration.
Miao Guo is a Lecturer at Department of Engineering, King's College London. Miao's research experiences in Life Sciences and Chemical Engineering has enabled her to consolidate cross-disciplinary strengths at the interface of Engineering and Natural Sciences with a particular focus on biorenewables. Prior to moving to King's College London in 2019, Miao Guo was an EPSRC Research Fellow hosted at Imperial College London. In collaboration with international academics and industrial pioneers, Miao has been leading the frontier research to couple new modelling approaches with lab experiments to optimise resource-circular bio-renewable manufacturing.
A researcher with multi-disciplinary background, holding a PhD from Department of Life Sciences Imperial College London and a BSc from Renmin University of China. My transition from Natural Sciences to Chemical Engineering has led to a unique academic path at the engineering-science interface.
Dr Gupta is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Birmingham. She studied at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), McMaster University (Canada) and University of Manchester (UK). Her research is focused on developing hydrogel-based optical sensors. She was a Lecturer in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Hull until 2016.
Graduated in Civil Engineering from Loughborough University of Technology, followed by PhD at the University of Birmingham. His academic career commenced at Heriot-Watt University, before moving to the University of Sheffield. In 2005, he became Professor of Civil Engineering, University of Warwick, returning to the University of Sheffield in 2018.
Sheffield Hallam University
Harald Haas graduated from the University of Applied Sciences in Nuremburg and received his PhD in Wireless Communications from the University of Edinburgh in 2001. He worked with Siemens AG as a communications engineer, then as Research Project Manager, returning to academia in 2002. He was Associate Professor at Jacobs University for five years, and has been Chair of Mobile Communications with the University of Edinburgh since 2007.
I completed my DPhil studying formal software verification and was a student a St. John's College, Oxford, where I was subsequently employed as a research assistant until 2011. Then I moved to Paris and was employed at IGM, Université Paris-Est. In 2013, I arrived at Royal Holloway as a lecturer in computer science, and obtained an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship.
University of Southampton
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.
