Professor awarded EPSRC Dream Fellowship

Professor Edmund Linfield of the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering has been announced as one of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council's (EPSRC) Dream Fellows.

Eight outstanding UK researchers have recently each been awarded a Dream Fellowship by EPSRC as part of the initial pilot activity. The award supports researchers that have the potential to profoundly impact and/or transform an area of research and is aligned to EPSRC’s strategic goal to developing visionary leaders who set research agendas and inspirational team leaders who act as role models.

A high degree of risk in their approach is expected and welcomed. The focus for Dream Fellowships is on an individual with a creative approach to developing pioneering ideas and ambitious research directions that enable discovery.
