Dr Sarah Dunn is a Lecturer in Structural Engineering at Newcastle University. She has a MEng in Civil and Structural Engineering (2010), a PhD in Civil Engineering (2014) and has previously held an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship (2015). Her research revolves around infrastructure resilience and aims to develop techniques that can recognise vulnerable areas within infrastructure systems, identify fragile system architectures and establish methods that can help to protect them from hazard.
Robert Eason received a B.Sc degree in Applied Physics in 1975 from University College London, and a D.Phil in Physics from the University of York in 1982. He is a Professor of Optoelectronics at the University of Southampton, and the Deputy Head of School Research in the Optoelectronics Research Centre.
University of Oxford
In my PhD research I will explore the intersection of theory and practical implementation of energy flexibility to answer the question of how much energy flexibility buildings have and how novel control strategies could allow unlocking this flexibility to benefit the wider energy system.
Professor Alicia El Haj is Theme Lead of Bioengineering and Therapeutics at Keele. She is a leading figure in Regenerative Medicine and has been involved in bringing together interdisciplinary groups within biomedicine, physical sciences and engineering interested in aspects of cell and tissue engineering.
After studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge I completed a multi-disciplinary PhD at Imperial College, working at the intersection of microfluidics, synthetic biology, and soft matter. I was then awarded a Doctoral Prize Fellowship, followed by an EPSRC Fellowship, allowing me to undertake independent research into the construction of artificial cells.

Jeremy Frey is Professor of Physical Chemistry and head of the Computational Systems Chemistry Group at the University of Southampton.
Professor Sir Richard is the Cavendish Professor of Physics at the University of Cambridge and has considerable experience both within academia and also the world of business. He has pioneered the physics, materials science and engineering of semiconductor devices made with carbon-based semiconducting polymers.
I am a robotics PhD student at the University of Bristol. I've just completed my masters year, during which I was researching Machine Learning on crowdsourced data. Specifically around designing nanoparticles (tiny, tiny particles which can carry chemotherapy drugs directly to tumours) which is very expensive and time consuming. Thus finding a way to automate this would be invaluable to the research.
I am a Senior Lecturer in Engineering at Swansea University. My expertise includes smart manufacturing and sensors technologies, with emphasis on knowledge and information management, data analytics and machine learning. Before joining academia, I worked for a decade in industry in senior roles delivering, planning and coordinating software development projects.
Professor Vernon Gibson is Chief Scientific Adviser at the Ministry of Defence and an ex officio member of EPSRC.
Professor Lynn Gladden is the Executive Chair of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and was appointed in October 2018. Professor Gladden is the Shell Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Cambridge in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, and a Fellow of Trinity College. Professor Gladden is also the UKRI lead for commercialisation.
Jon Gluyas has 28 years’ experience as a geoscientist in the petroleum industry and a further 10 years in academia.
Dr Kate Goldsworthy gained her PhD in Textile Design for the Circular Economy in 2012 from the University of the Arts London where she is now a Reader with the Textile Futures Research Centre. Her research focus is sustainable design, new finishing and production technologies and material innovation for the textile industry.
