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.
