Head of Department, Professor Steve Hailes, said: It’s one of the true pleasures of being a Head of Department that I have the privilege of announcing the results of our annual promotions process.

As part of that process, I get to write letters of support and see close up the quality, impact and breadth of research interests, the educational leadership, and many and varied other contributions both to UCL Computer Science and to others outside the institution.

I’m invariably humbled by it and the latest list again reflects the impact that those in our community are having on student experience and scholarship."
