Meet our new academic fellows

The Faculty of Engineering welcomes 19 new academic fellows into research roles across a broad range of research areas.

The new fellows join us as part of a £100m University investment into recruiting “250 great minds” by 2017. The unique fellowship scheme which was launched last year, saw a number of successful applicants embark on a five year structured development programme, leading to an established position as an associate professor.

Our new University Academic Fellows are based across our five schools. Click on their names to find out more about how their varied backgrounds and research interests:
