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.

Sandrine Heutz is a Reader in Functional Molecular Materials at Imperial College London.

Alastair Hibbins is a Professor in Metamaterial Physics at the University of Exeter.

Desmond received his PhD in Numerical Analysis at the University of Manchester in 1988. After a postdoctorate degree in Toronto he went on to become a Lecturer at the University of Dundee and a Reader in Applied Mathematics at the University of Strathclyde, where he received a Professorship in 1999.

Tom Hockaday is the Managing Director of Isis Innovation Ltd , the technology transfer company of the University of Oxford. Tom joined Isis in March 2000, following seven years in technology transfer at Bristol University, where he was Managing Director of Bristol Innovations Ltd, and four years at University College London.

Professor Karen Holford is the Pro Vice-Chancellor at the College of Physical Sciences, Cardiff University.

I studied Mathematics in Oxford and Edinburgh. My first postdoctoral research was in the Physics department in Rome. Next, I took up a fellowship in Pure Mathematics in Adelaide. Back in the UK, after six months job-seeking, I found a lectureship in Canterbury, Kent, where I have remained ever since.

Claire is a social scientist working in the field of sustainable production and consumption. Her research explores the social dimensions of global challenges such as climate change adaptation and mitigation, sustainable food, energy demand and water use.

Dr Louise Horsfall is a Senior Lecturer and synthetic biologist at the University of Edinburgh. She began her career as a chemist at the University of Oxford before moving to Liège (Belgium) to study biochemistry gaining her PhD in 2007. This was followed by postdoctoral research at the Universities of Leeds and Glasgow.

I'm currently doing a DPhil in Synthetic Biology at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Professor Hagan Bayley.

I was an undergraduate at Oxford, and completed a DPhil at Sussex in string / M-theory in 2005, after which I 'discipline hopped' into mathematical epidemiology. I spent several years as a research fellow at the University of Warwick and am currently a Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at the University of Manchester.

Diane joined EPSRC in 2002 and has worked in the ICT Theme as a Portfolio Manager since 2011. Diane is responsible for the Theme's Balancing Capability strategy and is the Theme contact for Robotics and Autonomous Systems and Strategic Equipment.

Dr Wei Huang is an associate professor at University of Oxford. Before that, he was a Sorby fellow, Lecturer and Senior Lecturer at University of Sheffield.  He is focused on to synthetic biology and single cell biology.  He aims to develop SimCells as freely programmable 'artificial cellular machines' on synthetic biology, and to establish himself as the pre-eminent scientist on single cell research.


Dr Gesche Margarethe Huebner is currently a Senior Research Associate at the Energy Institute, University College London. The main focus of her work is on understanding energy consumption and temperatures in homes.

Alan Hughes is Margaret Thatcher Professor of Enterprise Studies at the Judge Business School and a Fellow of Sidney Sussex College at the University of Cambridge where he is also Director of the Centre for Business Research and of the UK Innovation Research Centre (UK-IRC), a joint venture with Imperial College London.

Mark is CEO of BT's security enterprise, which brings together experts from several parts of BT. Mark started in April 2002. He reports to the Global Services CEO.

Alex joined EPSRC in 2002 and has worked in the ICT Theme as a Senior Portfolio Manager since 2009.

Sophie is a Capability Engineer for Airborne Communications and Identification at Leonardo. In her role she defines future Communications and Identification products, ensuring there is a technology roadmap to back up the strategy. She also manages low technology readiness level applied research projects, working with a number of universities to mature ideas. Sophie has a Masters Degree in Physics from Durham University and previously worked as an Antenna Engineer at Leonardo before her current role. Sophie is an active STEM ambassador and member of Women’s Engineering Society where she chairs the Younger Members Board. She is passionate about promoting careers in STEM to future generations.

Peter Huthwaite received his MEng and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College in 2008 and 2012 respectively. His PhD focused on breast ultrasound tomography and he subsequently applied these techniques to Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) as a postdoctorate and research fellow within the NDE group in the department.

David graduated from Imperial College London with a PhD in Chemistry in 1988. He has worked for 25 years in R&D with Procter & Gamble (based in the UK and the USA) in their Beauty, Health and Grooming businesses, leading R&D programmes in Europe, North America and globally.

I am a condensed matter theorist, with interests in low dimensional quantum systems and quantum liquids. After gaining an MPhys in 2004 and a PhD in 2008 from the University of Oxford, I worked in the US for five years as a Research Associate; firstly at the University of Virginia and then at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
