I am an interdisciplinary researcher with expertise in applied microbiology. I studied Biological Sciences and Environmental Sciences in Spain, obtaining my PhD in Physical Geography in 2008.
Raechelle D'Sa is a Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Liverpool. Her research involves the design of biomaterial interfaces for antimicrobial and tissue engineering applications.
Professor Chris Dungey is the Director of the Joining 4.0 Innovation Centre which is a collaboration between TWI and Lancaster University focusing on the digitalisation of advanced fabrication technologies and associated manufacturing systems.
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.
Rob Dwyer-Joyce is a Professor in at the University of Sheffield and manages the Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrated Tribology and the Leonardo Centre for Tribology. His research focuses on the development of ultrasonic sensors for tribology and the monitoring of machine elements in industrial and field applications.
David Dye came to Imperial College London in 2003 from the Canadian neutron scattering centre in Chalk River, having previously been at Cambridge. He focuses on alloy development and performance and processing issues in the micromechanics of alloys, including Ti, Ni-Ti, Co-Ni superalloys and TWIP steels. Industrial collaborators include Rolls-Royce, PCC and Dstl.
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.
Prior to the award of my Fellowship I had worked in a range of materials science disciplines, initially within a SME contract research company in the Pharma industry, and then as a PDRA investigating digital manufacture.
I am a soil scientist and ecologist. My research focusses on optimizing the ecosystem service provision in urban areas to improve sustainability and resilience. I held a postdoctoral position in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield after completing my PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University.
University of Oxford
A British and Israeli national, I received my BA in Mathematics and Physics from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, in 2003. Fascinated by Mathematical Physics, I continued my studies and received my MA in 2006. In 2007 I moved to Atlanta and have obtained my Ph.D from Georgia Institute of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Michael Loss in December 2011.
I am currently a Lise Meitner Senior Post Doctoral Fellow at TU Wien, after nearly 5 years at the University of Cambridge, 3 of which were under a personal Post Doctoral Fellowship awarded to me by the EPSRC.
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.
Dr Yuval Elani is an EPSRC Fellow at the Department of Chemistry at Imperial, where he leads the Soft Microsystems Engineering group. Yuval specialises in developing capabilities for precision engineering of artificial cells. He received multi-disciplinary training both at Cambridge and Imperial, and has expertise in soft-matter, microfluidics, optofluidics, chemical biology, and biophysics. He co-founded the fabriCELL centre for artificial cell research and the Cellular Bionics Doctoral Training Centre.
Peter Ellingworth is Chief Executive of the Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI), the industry association for the UK medical device sector. Peter leads industry’s engagement with the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSN). He currently sits on both South London and Oxford AHSN.
Andrew Ellis received the BSc degree in physics with a minor in mathematics from the University of Sussex, Brighton in 1987. He received the PhD degree in electronic and electrical engineering from Aston University in 1997. He is now Professor of Optical Communications at Aston University.
University of Bath
I was an undergraduate at Oxford University and received my PhD from the University of Cambridge. Following two years in commercial drug discovery, I became a synthetic biology postdoctoral fellow at Boston University. At Imperial College London, I lead the UK contribution to the Sc2.0 Synthetic Yeast genome project and co-organises undergraduate synthetic biology teaching and iGem.
I obtained a BA in Physics from the University of Patras in Greece and a PhD in Physics at the University of Texas at Austin. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute in Dresden 2002-2004. Since then I have held research faculty positions first at Georgia Institute of Technology (2004-2006), then at the University of Oregon, Eugene (2006-2008) and at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst 2008-2014. In September 2009 I came to University College London with an EPSRC Fellowship. In January 2013 I became a Lecturer and in October 2015 a Reader in Physics & Astronomy at UCL.
Alison is Professor of Probability and Deputy Head of the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division in the University of Oxford.
Dr Llion Marc Evans holds an EPSRC Manufacturing Research Fellowship at the College of Engineering, Swansea University. This focusses on application of image-based finite element method (IBFEM) in high-value manufacturing. He completed his PhD at the University of Manchester and then held a fellowship at the UK Atomic Energy Authority.
Dr Christine Evers completed her PhD and worked as a research fellow at the University of Edinburgh until 2010. She then worked as a Senior Systems Engineer at Selex, Edinburgh, after which she was a research associate at Imperial College London. As of 2017, she is awarded an EPSRC fellowship.
