I completed my PhD in quantum information theory at the University of New Mexico, USA in 2008. I then held postdoc positions at Imperial College London and the University of Oxford. By 2012, I felt ready to start my own research group.

I am a control systems engineer and environmental scientist who is fascinated by the complexity of our natural world and our relationship with it. These aspects combine in my research, where I develop environmental computer models and work with corporations and regulators to embed this science into sustainable decision-making.

I am a translational stem cell biologist exploring the application of novel biomaterial strategies for regenerative medicine. I undertook my PhD in bone regeneration at the University of Southampton and completed postdoctoral positions in the field of translational stem cell biology and biomaterials.

I am a civil engineer by background, but I became interested in the wider influence of engineering systems beyond their physical form and the need to consider their broader environmental and social context. This philosophy is known as Earth Systems Engineering.

Nora de Leeuw is Professor of Computational Chemistry at Cardiff University, where she also serves as Pro-Vice Chancellor International. With a PhD in Computational Chemistry from Bath University, previous appointments have included Lecturer in Physical Chemistry at the University of Reading, EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow at Birkbeck College London and Professor of Computational Materials Science at University College London, where she also led an EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training. Nora has been awarded a Royal Society Wolfson Merit Award, Royal Society Industry Fellowship and she is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, elected Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales and elected Member of Academia Europaea.  


I am a theoretical physicist and an entrepreneur. I did my undergraduate studies at École Normale Supérieure in Paris and my PhD at Université Paris Diderot. After my PhD I did two postdoctorates in Tokyo and in Paris, and I opened a few start-ups, before getting a position in Southampton.

Dr Joe de Sousa is the Director Science & Technology, Global Product Development at AstraZeneca.

Ms Dean is a Council Member of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and he EEF’s Economic Policy Committee and Chair of Brandon Trust.

After completing an undergraduate degree in Physics at The University of Manchester, I studied for a PhD in Laser Physics within the Laser Photonics Group at Manchester. In 2005 I undertook a post-doctoral research position within The Institute of Microwaves and Photonics at The University of Leeds, and was awarded an EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellowship in 2011.

Professor Charlotte Deane is the Deputy Executive Chair of the EPSRC and was appointed in September 2019. Professor Deane joins EPSRC on secondment from the University of Oxford where she is currently Professor of Structural Bioinformatics, and was Head of the Department of Statistics.

Matteo obtained an MSc in Computer Science and a PhD in computational biophysics from Ecole polytechnique federale de Lausanne, Switzerland. In 2013 he moved to Oxford with a Swiss National Science Foundation fellowship and worked under Professor Justin Benesch and Professor Dame Carol Robinson, FRS. In 2017 he started by independent research in Durham.

Professor Delpy is a world-renowned researcher specialising in the development of techniques for the physiological monitoring of patients and especially the imaging of neonatal brain function.

After graduating with a DIPL.-ING. (equivalent to MSc) in Automotive Engineering from the University of Stuttgart in 2009, I studied for a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London, focusing on interfacial flow modelling on unstructured meshes. I continued this work as a postdoctorate at Imperial College London.

Dr Vimal Dhokia is an Assistant Professor in Engineering Design in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bath, specialising in the interface between design and manufacture.

Sir Ian Diamond is Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Aberdeen, an appointment he has held since 01 April 2010. He was previously Chief Executive of the Economic and Social Research Council and before that Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Southampton, where he had been for most of his career.

I received my BSc in Applied Mathematics at the Mexico Autonomous Institute of Technology (ITAM). I studied an MSc in Statistics at the University of Essex and a PhD at Swansea University. After a postdoc in Swansea I joined the University of Liverpool in 2013. 

Phill Dickens founded the Rapid Manufacturing Research Group in the early 1990s. He was the first recipient of the International Freeform and Additive Manufacturing Excellence award in 2009. He has led international government missions, and given many international keynote speeches and acts as a consultant to this industry.

Daniele received his DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2004 and he joined Imperial College London in 2006, where he is now Head of the Tribology Group. His research centres on the application of advanced modelling strategies to materials, biomechanics and structural integrity, with a particular focus on tribology.

Steve Dixon has been working in ultrasonics research for over 25 years, and has worked on collaborative R&D projects with over 50 different industrial partners. He established the Centre for Industrial Ultrasonics in 2011 in order to make it easier for industry and particularly SMEs to engage with University research.

After careers at Imperial College and Philips Research laboratories he was appointed to a University Lectureship and College Fellowship at the Queen’s College Oxford in 1988 and a Professorship in 1996. There he conducted research on nanoparticles, nanostructures, optoelectronics and biosensors.

Since my graduate studies in 2010 I have been working on tensor product methods and multi-linear algebra with applications. I received my PhD in August 2014 at the University of Leipzig, Germany, and am now a Postdoctoral Researcher and moved to the Max Planck Institute in Magdeburg, as a postdoctoral researcher.  Since 2016 I am working as a research fellow at the University of Bath.
