Thanks to funding granted via the Franco-Scottish strategy meeting Auld Alliance call, Dr Micheline Abbas (Associate professor, University of Toulouse) and myself were invited to organise a workshop at the Institut Français d’Ecosse (Edinburgh) to connect researchers based in Scotland and France. The meeting – facilitated by Science and Technology Counsellor Dr Jean Arlat – was very fruitful, offering a unique breadth of expertise with researchers from the University of Glasgow, the University of Edinburgh, four different laboratories from the University of Toulouse (IMFT, LGC, TBI and ICA) as well as industry (uFraction8).
Absolutely honoured to be one of the nine engineers who received a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship for 2018-2023. Exciting time ahead!
We are delighted to announce that we received a prestigious Ingenious Public Engagement Award from the Royal Academy of Engineering to promote biomedical engineering in schools. The project - Circuits! - will allow engineers and teachers to co produce a new teaching tool focusing on circuits used for biomedical applications. Circuits! is led by Proteus’ Dr Helen Szoor-McElhinney and myself and aims to inspire the next generation of biomedical engineers.
The project started in May 2017 and we plan to have the new teaching tool in schools by June 2018. Follow the latest exciting news about this project here.
