Professor Veronica Bowman is a senior principal statistician at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory and is internationally recognised as the lead technical expert for Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) knowledge management. She specialises in uncertainty calculation and communication and Bayesian inference. In particular, she has spent many years applying Bayesian methodology and data fusion techniques to problems in the military domain as well as working with academia to improve understanding of how uncertainty is propagated and how decisions should be taken under uncertainty. She was the founder and chair of the Calculating and Communicating Uncertainty Conference (CCU 2015), which bought together leading researchers from the field of uncertainty and instigated the EPSRC funded research into decision making under uncertainty.
Jack is currently a non-executive director of FTSE companies Mitie plc and TT Electronics plc, and until recently Laird plc. He is a Council Member of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and on the Board of the Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials. He recently co-chaired the UK Advanced Materials Leadership Council at the department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. He is a serial entrepreneur and previously chaired advanced materials company Ilika plc which he took from a spin-out to the AIM market. He was awarded an OBE in 2015 for services to Science and Engineering. He holds degrees from Stanford University, the London School of Economics and Insead.
Imperial College London
I am a lecturer in geotechnical (ground) engineering. I want to find the best way to assess, preserve and strengthen our ageing transport infrastructure, so that it is fit for purpose in the 21st Century. I have undertaken field investigations, laboratory modelling and numerical simulations to better understand the behaviour of old (mainly Victorian) railway embankments, retaining walls and historic buildings.
