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.
University of Cambridge
I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computing at Imperial; I joined as a Lecturer in 2011. Previously, I was: Visiting Researcher, Microsoft Research Redmond (during 2011); EPSRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Oxford (2009-2011); developer at Codeplay Software (2007- 2009). My PhD is from the University of Glasgow.
In 1994 Tim took up a job as Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Manchester, being promoted to Reader in 2000. In 2001 he moved to the University of Oxford as Lecturer in Chemistry and Fellow of Magdalen College. In 2004 he was appointed Professor of Chemistry.
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.
