Professor Steve Beeby leads the Smart Electronic Materials and Systems (SEMS) group in the Department of Electronics and Computers Science at the University of Southampton. He leads research into energy harvesting and e-textiles that has led to two spinout companies and over 250 publications.
I am a Civil Engineer and Associate Professor in Water Management at Heriot-Watt University. My research focuses on the impacts of hydrological extremes (floods and droughts - hydro-hazards) on society. Prior to Heriot-Watt I held an academic position at UNESCO-IHE in the Netherlands and worked as an engineer for Jacobs.
As the Met Office Chief Scientist, Professor Stephen Belcher is responsible for providing leadership of its 500 research and development staff, who have earned a world-wide reputation for excellence in weather and climate science and the translation of this science into weather and climate services. He represents the Met Office on science and research to UK Government and is a member of the Government Chief Scientists Network.
Sarah Bell is an environmental engineer and Director of the Engineering Exchange at UCL. Her research addresses the relationships between engineering, infrastructure and society in order to address urban sustainability and resilience.
I obtained my PhD from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm in 2005. From Stockholm I moved to Princeton where I became a Veblen Instructor at Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study. After that I stayed at Princeton as an Assistant Professor and in 2011 I came to the University of Oxford as a Lecturer in Analysis. I am also a Fellow of St. Anne's College.
After studying mathematics and physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jonathan moved to Brown University where he received his PhD in mathematics (2011). After spending time at Cambridge University (2011-2014), Imperial College London (2014-2016) and Durham University (2016), Jonathan is now a senior Lecturer at Cardiff University.
I joined the University of Cambridge as a lecturer in 2007. I became a Reader in Probability in 2012. I am also a fellow of King's college. Prior to hat I was educated in France and did a joint PhD thesis at Cornell University (USA) and Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris), and continued as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver (Canada).
Susan is a University Academic Fellow (Assistant Professor) in Cementitious Materials at The University of Leeds, and her research focuses on the development, characterisation and exploitation of advanced and non-traditional cement and concrete technologies for sustainable infrastructure.
My research concerns the development of materials for tissue repair and regeneration. I currently direct, together with Professor Ruth Cameron, the Cambridge Centre for Medical Materials, a group of around 25 post-docs and PhD students.
This is a job-share fellowship with Ruth Cameron.
Currently in her second year in the Fluid Dynamics Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at the University of Leeds, Megan's PhD research centres on the interaction of environmental wind shear and moist convection in the West African Monsoon.
I work in the field of machine translation and recently I have focussed on neural machine translation where advances using sub-word units and monolingual data have beaten state-of-the-art baselines. More generally I am interested in how computational linguistics and machine learning can be combined to provide compelling NLP applications
Dr Kate Black became a lecturer in the School of Engineering at the University of Liverpool in July 2013. Her research background is in Additive Manufacturing, with particular interest in the development of functional materials for inkjet printing. She is also a member of the Young Academy of Europe and is the chair for the Liverpool Women in Science and Engineering society (LivWiSE).
Liam Blackwell is Deputy Director for Quantum Technologies, with responsibility for the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council's contribution to the UK's National Quantum Technologies Programme; and for EPSRC's participation in the Clean Growth Challenge in the Industrial Strategy.
Andrew Blake was appointed as the first Director of The Alan Turing Institute in October 2015. Formerly, Andrew joined Microsoft in 1999 as a Senior Researcher to found the Computer Vision group. In 2008 he became a Deputy Managing Director at the lab and in 2010 took up the position of Microsoft Distinguished Scientist and the Laboratory Director of Microsoft Research Cambridge, England.
Dimitra Blana is a Research Fellow in Biomedical Engineering at Keele University. She studied for her undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering in the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, before moving to Case Western Reserve University (Ohio, USA) for her MSc and PhD in Biomedical Engineering.
I received my PhD in Physics from the University of Nottingham where I specialised in the development of MRI methodologies. I continued this work during postdoctoral positions in Nottingham, the University of California San Diego and the University of Oxford, before being awarded an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship in 2013.
Daphne Jackson Fellow: I did my PhD at the University of Amsterdam under supervision of Professor Albert Shiryaev and Professor Chris Klaassen. Following the completion of my PhD, I was a University Research Fellow at City University, London.
Sarah completed her PhD in Radiation Physics at University College London in 2008 and then worked in both the UK (at Cambridge) and the USA (at Stanford) as a postdoctoral fellow in molecular imaging. In 2013, she returned to the UK as a Lecturer at the University of Cambridge and was promoted to Reader in Biomedical Physics in 2017.
Richard obtained his PhD from Oxford in 2004. Postdoctoral positions at Bath and Oxford led to an EPSRC Fellowship in 2009. In 2013, Richard moved to the Royal Veterinary College. In 2015, Richard was made Reader of Biomechanics and he continues to work on aerodynamics, sensing, control, and bio-inspired robotics.
