Professor Jiannis Pachos
Being able to predict the motion of galaxies or the behaviour of subatomic particles based on few principles — and lots of hard work—is in the core of theoretical physics.I strongly believe that physics, even at challenging levels, should be accessible. This is reflected in the way the Theoretical Physics Program is composed and taught at the University of Leeds.

Dani Barrington civil programme manager
My participatory research and teaching focuses on ensuring that everyone has access to the water, sanitation and hygiene services that they want to use, regardless of their income or the country they call home. I also believe that there is more to well-being than economic development, and that although technology and products play a crucial role, they alone cannot solve all of our water, sanitation and hygiene challenges.

Dr Jan Palczewski
"I find financial mathematics fascinating because it reaches far beyond finance. The same paradigms and mathematical techniques are invaluable in understanding economic and social phenomena. I have recently been involved in researching how to overcome challenges of switching to wind and solar generation to reduce carbon emissions: on the mathematical level, the variability of wind speed and solar radiation is no different than that of stock prices on financial markets."
