UCL EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowships: Winter 2016

18 January 2017

The UCL EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowships support the forefront of EPSRC's doctoral graduates to continue, and develop their independent academic research career.

Awards provide financial support for a duration of two years for exceptional candidates to work on individually devised original projects.

The selection panel for the Winter Call, lead by Prof Des McMorrow (Vice Dean for Research) and consisting of academics from across the BEAMS faculty, reviewed each candidate, considering their academic merit along with the strength of their long-term career plan and research proposal. Four awards were made in total, to the recipients indicated below:

Christopher Birkbeck (Mathematics) Geometric aspects of eigenvarieties associated to Hilbert modular forms
Richard Colchester (Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering) All-Optical Intravascular Ultrasound (AO-IVUS) for interventional surgical procedures
Lai Li (Physics and Astronomy) The development of a prototype whispering gallery mode inertial sensor
Kim Moore (Mathematics) Topics in calibrated geometry

Congratulations to all the successful candidates! The next call will open in late May 2017 - further details can be found on the Doctoral Prize Fellowship Webpage
