Noha Abu El Magd obtained her BSc degree in Nanotechnology (Chemical) (2014) with first class honours from the University of Leeds, UK. In September 2014, she joined the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials at the University of Bristol and is currently in the final year of her PhD project entitled “Nanoporous Protein Crystal Biohybrid Materials”.
Ankush is a Lecturer in Engineering and a member of the Glasgow Computational Engineering Centre at the University of Glasgow.
Currently in her second year in the Fluid Dynamics Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at the University of Leeds, Megan's PhD research centres on the interaction of environmental wind shear and moist convection in the West African Monsoon.
Dimitra Blana is a Research Fellow in Biomedical Engineering at Keele University. She studied for her undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering in the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, before moving to Case Western Reserve University (Ohio, USA) for her MSc and PhD in Biomedical Engineering.
I am a lecturer in geotechnical (ground) engineering. I want to find the best way to assess, preserve and strengthen our ageing transport infrastructure, so that it is fit for purpose in the 21st Century. I have undertaken field investigations, laboratory modelling and numerical simulations to better understand the behaviour of old (mainly Victorian) railway embankments, retaining walls and historic buildings.
Francesca Cecinati is a civil and environmental engineer, currently studying Indian climate extremes at the University of Bath as a Research Associate. She got a double Master's degree from the Universitá di Genova (Italy) and the Massachussets Institute of Technology (USA), thanks to a Fulbright Scholarship.
Based at Heriot-Watt University, Dr Gerard Cummins holds his bachelor degree from University College Cork, Ireland and his doctorate from the University of Edinburgh, where he was the recipient of the Wolfson Microelectronics Scholarship.
In my PhD research I will explore the intersection of theory and practical implementation of energy flexibility to answer the question of how much energy flexibility buildings have and how novel control strategies could allow unlocking this flexibility to benefit the wider energy system.
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 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.
Claire is a social scientist working in the field of sustainable production and consumption. Her research explores the social dimensions of global challenges such as climate change adaptation and mitigation, sustainable food, energy demand and water use.
I'm currently doing a DPhil in Synthetic Biology at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Professor Hagan Bayley.
Dr Gesche Margarethe Huebner is currently a Senior Research Associate at the Energy Institute, University College London. The main focus of her work is on understanding energy consumption and temperatures in homes.
Dr Panagiotis Kosmas joined King's College London (KCL) as a Lecturer in 2008, and is currently a Senior Lecturer at KCL's Department of Informatics.
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.
Dr Gillian Menzies is an Associate Professor of Environment and Climate Change at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. She has been in post since 2000, has a track record of research in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and sustainability, and is Director of the RAEng Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Building Design.
Dafne Zuleima Morgado Ramirez is a Biomedical Engineer and Research Associate at University College London exploring the appropriateness and interaction opportunities of manual wheelchairs with power assist devices. Prior to joining the Interaction Centre (UCLIC), her first postdoctoral position was at the UCL Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science in the Wearable Assistive Materials project.
Dr Despina Moschou (MEng, PhD) is a Lecturer and 50th-anniversary Prize Fellow in Bioelectronics, within the Centre for Biosensors, Bioelectronics and Biodevices (C3Bio), Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at the University of Bath.
Dr O'Donovan is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Heriot‐Watt University, Edinburgh and is the Director of the Scottish Institute for Solar Energy Research (SISER). His has a research background and expertise in thermal science which he applies to the development of solar technology for energy conversion, storage and systems integration.
Dr Paolo Paoletti is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Engineering at the University of Liverpool. He graduated cum laude in Automation Engineering (2006) and obtained a PhD in Nonlinear Dynamics and Complex Systems (2010) from the University of Florence, Italy.
Maria Pregnolato is a Lecturer in Civil Engineering and EPSRC Research Fellow at the University of Bristol. Her projects within the Living with Environmental Change (LWEC) area investigates the impact of flooding on bridges and transportation.
Dr David Rush is a lecturer in structural engineering at the University of Edinburgh. Having completed his PhD in 2013 of the fire performance of concrete-filled hollow sections, he has continued to pursue scientific and engineering solutions to improve the safe, sustainable and resilient design of the built environment against fire.
