I obtained my PhD at Cambridge in 2004 and did postdocs at Paris VI, Cambridge and Oxford. I was an Assistant Professor at Warwick 2009-11, before returning to Oxford to take up an Associate Professorship. I was awarded the title of Professor in 2017.
I received degrees in Physics and Chemistry from MIT and a PhD in Physics from Cornell. After a postdoctorate at the University of Chicago and faculty positions at Princeton and the University of Arizona I joined the University of Cambridge in 2006 as the Schlumberger Professor of Complex Physical Systems.
Dr Kate Goldsworthy gained her PhD in Textile Design for the Circular Economy in 2012 from the University of the Arts London where she is now a Reader with the Textile Futures Research Centre. Her research focus is sustainable design, new finishing and production technologies and material innovation for the textile industry.
After receiving my PhD from the University of Brussels I moved to the USA where I spent seventeen years. In 2010, I joined the Oxford University where I am the director of the Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and of the International Brain mechanics and Trauma Lab.
Paul currently holds the position of VP Engineering Thales UK a role in which he is responsible for around 2500 engineers and scientists working on a variety of R&D projects spanning Aerospace, Space, Security, Transportation and Defence sectors.
I started my academic career at Manchester, obtaining my PhD from the Physics Department of the University of Manchester's Institute of Science and Technology in 2005. I then began a post-doctoral position based at the STFC Daresbury Laboratory. In 2008 I moved back to the University to undertake a PDRA following which I was awarded an EPSRC Fellowship.
Duncan is Head of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde.
Patrick Grant became Cookson Professor of Materials in 2004 at the University of Oxford, is a Chartered Engineer (CEng), a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (FIMMM), and was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng) in 2010.
Claire is a Deputy Director at EPSRC. She is responsible for EPSRC's Promoting Excellence in Research Delivery Plan priority, whereby EPSRC is focussing on a number of research delivery funding vehicles, particularly in relation to the fundamental research endeavour, to maintain and enhance the UK's ability to remain a world leader in engineering and physical sciences research and the technologies derived from it. Notably Claire has responsibility for Big Ideas, New Horizons and Centres of Excellence.
I studied Chemistry at Durham University, gaining an MSci in 2001 and my PhD in 2005, before going on to work as a postdoc at the University of Bristol. I was made a Leverhulme Trust Early Career fellow in 2009 before starting a EPSRC CAF in 2011.
Dr Rylie Green joined the ICL Bioengineering department in 2016. She received her PhD (Biomedical Engineering) from the University of New South Wales, Australia in 2008. Dr Green's research has been focused on developing bioactive conducting polymers for application to medical electrodes, with a specific focus on neuroprostheses.
In this Leadership Fellowship I am using high pressures and temperatures, to synthesize and study novel states of matter. I aspire to create and study novel dissipationless quantum states never observed before, namely a metallic superconducting super-fluid, in hydrogen and hydrogen rich systems using extreme conditions as a tool.
I completed my DPhil in Oxford in 2008 before undertaking postdoctoral and Research Fellow positions at Oxford, Durham and Princeton. I am now a Royal Society University Research Fellow and EPSRC Fellow in Oxford’s Mathematical Institute and a regular collaborator and lecturer at Princeton University.
Imperial College London
I moved to the UK in 2000 as a Marie Curie Fellow and worked on advanced laser processes for the semiconductor and photovoltaic industry. In 2009 I completed an MSc in Sustainable Energy Futures at Imperial College London followed by a UKERC funded PhD on the role of storage in future energy systems.
I have already developed to be a leading expert in application of network modelling and reliability analyses to power system economics, as evidenced by nine IEEE journal publications in this area between 2011-2013.
I am Research Fellow at Imperial College London. I worked at GE Global Research Centre as a Consulting Engineer before joining Imperial. My research focuses on the analysis and technology to support a low carbon electrical power network, especially renewable energy conversion, control, and network integration.
A researcher with multi-disciplinary background, holding a PhD from Department of Life Sciences Imperial College London and a BSc from Renmin University of China. My transition from Natural Sciences to Chemical Engineering has led to a unique academic path at the engineering-science interface.
