I am a Senior Lecturer in Forensic Analysis from the University of Surrey. I have developed forensic applications for Ion Beam Analysis and mass spectrometry techniques for many years, working with a number of law enforcement agencies.
Richard is a research fellow working at the University of Manchester. His work aims to combine synthetic biology with tissue engineering in order to create drug testing tools that are accurate, cheap and high-throughput.
Adam’s research develops mathematical methods for studying the neural basis of consciousness. Complexity and information theory are central to the research. He is based at the multi-disciplinary Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science at the University of Sussex. He got his PhD in string/M-theory at Oxford
John Batchelor is head of the Antennas Group at Kent. His current research interests include bodyworn antennas, platform independent RFID tags including transfer tattoo tags for skin, compact multiband antennas, Electromagnetic-Band Gap (EBG) structures, long-wavelength Frequency-Selective Surfaces (FSS) and the use of passive wireless sensors for Assistive Technologies.
I am the Chair in Molecular Bionics in the Department of Chemistry at the University College London (UCL). Prior to UCL, I held positions as Lecturer -2006, Senior Lecturer -2009 and Professor -2011 in the Departments of Materials Sci. Eng. (2006-2009) and Biomedical Science (2009-2013) at the University of Sheffield.
Dr Bauer graduated from ETH Zurich (Switzerland) in 2008, where he afterwards obtained a PhD in Computational Neuroscience in 2013. After a postdoctoral research position and an MRC Skills Development Fellowship at Newcastle University (NU), he then started his EPSRC UK Research and Innovation Fellowship in 2018 (also at NU).

Professor Steve Beeby leads the Smart Electronic Materials and Systems (SEMS) group in the Department of Electronics and Computers Science at the University of Southampton. He leads research into energy harvesting and e-textiles that has led to two spinout companies and over 250 publications.
I am a Civil Engineer and Associate Professor in Water Management at Heriot-Watt University. My research focuses on the impacts of hydrological extremes (floods and droughts - hydro-hazards) on society. Prior to Heriot-Watt I held an academic position at UNESCO-IHE in the Netherlands and worked as an engineer for Jacobs.
Sarah Bell is an environmental engineer and Director of the Engineering Exchange at UCL. Her research addresses the relationships between engineering, infrastructure and society in order to address urban sustainability and resilience.
I obtained my PhD from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm in 2005. From Stockholm I moved to Princeton where I became a Veblen Instructor at Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study. After that I stayed at Princeton as an Assistant Professor and in 2011 I came to the University of Oxford as a Lecturer in Analysis. I am also a Fellow of St. Anne's College.
After studying mathematics and physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jonathan moved to Brown University where he received his PhD in mathematics (2011). After spending time at Cambridge University (2011-2014), Imperial College London (2014-2016) and Durham University (2016), Jonathan is now a senior Lecturer at Cardiff University.
I joined the University of Cambridge as a lecturer in 2007. I became a Reader in Probability in 2012. I am also a fellow of King's college. Prior to hat I was educated in France and did a joint PhD thesis at Cornell University (USA) and Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris), and continued as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver (Canada).
My research concerns the development of materials for tissue repair and regeneration. I currently direct, together with Professor Ruth Cameron, the Cambridge Centre for Medical Materials, a group of around 25 post-docs and PhD students.
This is a job-share fellowship with Ruth Cameron.
I work in the field of machine translation and recently I have focussed on neural machine translation where advances using sub-word units and monolingual data have beaten state-of-the-art baselines. More generally I am interested in how computational linguistics and machine learning can be combined to provide compelling NLP applications
