Candice specialises in Additive Manufacturing (AM) and was recognised for academic research with the award of the FAME Junior award 2011, the only UK recipient to date of this award. Her main focus is on polymer materials and processes, with a view to broadening the utilisation of the technologies across a range of industries.
David Manning is a geologist by training, now Professor of Soil Science at Newcastle University. He holds an Honorary Chair in the School of Geosciences at Edinburgh University. His research focuses on carbon capture in natural and artificial soils (carbonation and biochar), and on both shallow and deep geothermal energy. He was Director of Mineral Solutions Ltd for 10 years, and President of the Geological Society of London from 2014-16.
Gavin works within UKRI Finance and is the Senior Finance Business Partner supporting EPSRC. He provides strategic leadership to ensure the finance function provides effective support to EPSRC in delivering its financial objectives.
Christopher Marrows is Professor of Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Leeds. Previously a Research Fellow of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, his research interests span nanomagnetism, nanoelectronics, and spintronics, studying the phenomena that will underpin future generations of information technology hardware.
Dr Haydn Martin is a Senior Research Fellow at the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology at the University of Huddersfield, having completed his EPSRC in 2009. His field of research is in surface and precision metrology.
Lucy Martin is Deputy Director for Cross-Council Programmes with a focus on energy and decarbonisation and the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund Faraday Battery Challenge. Lucy is responsible for strategic leadership and oversight of EPSRC’s environmental sustainability research agenda.
I am Senior Lecturer in Chemical Engineering and research new ways to measure, control and utilise multiphase properties in products and processes. My group use facilities across Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science and the wider University and make particular use of the Chadwick Building Pilot Hall where we can mix across bench to industrial scale with inline particle characterisation, spectroscopy and electrical tomography and also the Manchester X-Ray Imaging Facility.
Allan Matthews is Professor of Surface Engineering and Tribology in the School of Materials and Director of the BP International Centre for Advanced Materials. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.
Stephen McArthur is a Professor of Intelligent Energy Systems and a Deputy Associate Principal at the University of Strathclyde.
Dr McCalmont returned to university as a mature student following a career in commercial forestry. He felt there was a need in the industry for people who could understand the changing nature of UK forestry and public demands of it so he decided to study conservation and land management with the idea of returning to the industry following graduation.
Emma is a PhD student funded by the University of Birmingham to research externally manipulating collagen type I. This involves the use of inorganic ions and topographical cues to aid wound repair at different sites within the body.
Alison McKay is Professor of Design Systems in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds and director of the Socio-Technical Centre, a multidisciplinary research centre based in the Leeds University Business School.
I am an experimental physicist, working in the field of high power laser-plasma interactions. The award of an EPSRC Leadership Fellowship enables me to dedicate most of my time to research. It is also supporting two postdoctoral research associates (PDRAs) to work on new frontiers and challenging problems in laser-plasma physics. This has opened up promising new directions in my research.
