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.
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.
Professor Sir Richard is the Cavendish Professor of Physics at the University of Cambridge and has considerable experience both within academia and also the world of business. He has pioneered the physics, materials science and engineering of semiconductor devices made with carbon-based semiconducting polymers.
I graduated in 2000 with a Master of Science degree in mathematics from Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland. I then obtained a doctorate in statistics from the University of Bristol in 2003. Since then, I have worked at Imperial College London, the University of Bristol, Winton Capital Management and, most recently, the London School of Economics. In 2013, I was awarded a Guy Medal in Bronze by the Royal Statistical Society. In 2014-17, I served as Joint Editor of the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society Series B.
I am a Reader in Chemistry at Imperial College London. My research concerns the development of chemistry-led approaches to interrogate function in chemistry, materials and medicine.
Carmen is currently an EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellow since 2012 and a Reader from August 2015. Prior to that she held a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship. Carmen did her PhD with Professor G J Boons (CCRC, USA) and postdoctoral work with Professor C H Wong (Scripps, USA) in the area of oligosaccharide chemistry, which was followed by postdoctoral research in biosynthesis with Professor S E O’Connor (MIT, USA).
Yue is a Reader in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, where he leads the Whitespace Machine Communication Lab. His research focuses on developing theoretical research into practice in the interdisciplinary area among smart antennas, signal processing, spectrum sharing, internet of things.
I am a lecturer in electrochemistry at Southampton. I have a multidisciplinary background on fundamental electrochemistry and in-situ characterisation techniques and her current interests are the development of the next generation of rechargeable batteries, with focus on lithium-oxygen and lithium-sulphur batteries, and new methods of lithium production and recycling.
Antonio M. Garcia-Garcia joined the Cavendish Laboratory in 2011 as an EPSRC career acceleration fellow. Previously he held appointments in Lisbon University, Paris University and Princeton University (2004-2009). His research group, two PhD and two postdocs, is currently supported by the European Commission, EPSRC and Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia grants.
I am a robotics PhD student at the University of Bristol. I've just completed my masters year, during which I was researching Machine Learning on crowdsourced data. Specifically around designing nanoparticles (tiny, tiny particles which can carry chemotherapy drugs directly to tumours) which is very expensive and time consuming. Thus finding a way to automate this would be invaluable to the research.
Dr Georgiev has BSc and MSc degrees in chemistry and computational chemistry from Sofia University, Bulgaria in 2004 and 2006, correspondingly. He received the PhD degree from the University of Oxford in 2011. In 2011, he joined the Device Modelling Group (DevMod) he was a Research Associate until 2015.
Dr. Abhijeet Ghosh is currently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. His main research interests are in realistic computer graphics and computational photography. He currently holds a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award besides an EPSRC Early Career Fellowship
I am a Senior Lecturer in Engineering at Swansea University. My expertise includes smart manufacturing and sensors technologies, with emphasis on knowledge and information management, data analytics and machine learning. Before joining academia, I worked for a decade in industry in senior roles delivering, planning and coordinating software development projects.
I studied mathematics and physics at University of Washington in Seattle, and I wrote my DPhil thesis in topology under Ulrike Tillmann in 2007. Afterwards I went to Paris on a William Hodge Fellowship at the IHES for 2007-8, followed by a Junior Research Fellowship at Magdalen College, Oxford for 2008-10. I took up my Fellowship at Bath in 2010, and moved to Swansea in 2011.
