Suzanne Ellis is a Research Director in Johnson Matthey, focussing on building sustainable innovation opportunities in low carbon technologies and resource efficiency.
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.
Daphne earned a double BSc in Computer Science and Biology at Duke University as an Angier B. Duke Scholar and then a PhD in stochastic gene expression from the University of Cambridge as a Marshall Scholar. She has conducted bioinformatics research in the Sainsbury Laboratory in Cambridge.
Professor Brian G. Falzon is the Head of School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Queen's University Belfast and is the Royal Academy of Engineering - Bombardier Chair in Aerospace Composites.
I received my PhD from Imperial College London in 2010. After a postdoc there, I joined the University of Oxford on an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship (2013-2018). Since 2016 I have been associate professor of numerical analysis and scientific computing in Oxford.
Michael was jointly award his doctorate by University College London and Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon in 2015. After a short postdoc and a teaching position in the School of Mathematics at Bristol, Michael moved to the School of Physics to start his EPSRC Fellowship in August 2017.
Dr Alessandro Fedrizzi is an Associate Professor at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. Dr Fedrizzi completed his PhD in 2008, with Anton Zeilinger at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Vienna. He then spent seven years as a research fellow Downunder, at the University of Queensland.
I am an EPSRC Early Career Fellow and a Senior Research Fellow in the London Centre for Nanotechnology at UCL. My research focus is nanodevices and superconducting materials and I am investigating development of useful devices for new quantum technologies. Before joining UCL, I gained degrees from Cambridge (undergraduate) and Birmingham (PhD). I have also been a Postdoctoral Research Partner at NPL.
I am investigating new and more efficient ways to store and process information using magnetic nanostructures. For that I am using novel, advanced nanolithography techniques based on focussed electron and ion beams, which could make possible the creation of three-dimensional spintronic devices.
Emma is a Research Fellow in the Schools of Civil Engineering and Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham. Her interests include infrastructure meteorology, urban climatology, green infrastructure, air quality, and GIS. Emma also holds a NERC Knowledge Exchange Fellowship.
I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow at the Department of Physics, York. This follows several other appointments, including a 3-year post-doctoral fellowship at the National University of Singapore. My interests are broadly on light-matter interactions, quantum dynamics, and charge carrier transport theory in atomically thin materials.
Peter Ferris is a Senior Strategy Manager working in the Strategy and Planning team within EPSRC.
Anthony Finkelstein is a graduate in systems engineering and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and of the City & Guilds of London Institute. Formerly, Dean of UCL Faculty of Engineering Sciences, Head of UCL Department of Computer Science and Professor of Software Systems Engineering at University College London (UCL). Anthony is currently serving in the capacity of a Chief Scientific Advisor affiliated to the Government Office for Science.
After completing a PhD in particle physics, Steve Fitzgerald worked at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy for 9 years, studying the effects of intense neutron irradiation on prototype fusion reactor materials. In 2013 he took up a departmental lectureship at Oxford University, before moving to Leeds in 2016.
I spent fifteen years in academia in physics, applied mathematics and electronic engineering before moving to the UK optical communications industry, where I spent a further fifteen years with Marconi, Ericsson and Oclaro Technology. I took up my current post at Aston University in 2014.
I have worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the area of formal methods and verification technology for 8 years. My main interests are in theorem proving with Isabelle/HOL, formal semantics using the Unifying Theories of Programming, Hybrid Systems, and safety assurance of Cyber-Physical Systems and Autonomous Robots.
Samantha is a Deputy Director for the Research Base at EPSRC. Her responsibilities include leadership in our Engineering, ICT, Managing the Portfolio and Research Infrastructure portfolios.
I will design, deploy and evaluate a new kind of design approach based on functional plastics - cheap conducting or semi-conducting polymer materials that can be arranged or printed to build circuits, transistors, sensors, displays and many other electronic components.
