Dr Andrew Jackson awarded Developmental University Student Education Fellowship

We are pleased to announce that Dr Andrew Jackson, teaching and research fellow in the School of Mechanical Engineering, has been awarded a Developmental University Student Education Fellowship.

University Student Education Fellowships are open to all staff who teach or support learning, and are able to demonstrate the desired qualities of what makes an excellent teacher. Developmental Fellowships are supported by £4k of project funding and a £1k honorarium for one year.

Since joining the University of Leeds, Andrew has worked as a research fellow in the area of rehabilitation robotics, specifically with the iPAM system that provides therapeutic exercise to people with arm weakness as a result of stroke. He delivers teaching in Computing for Engineering Analysis and Design and Manufacture modules while also running the National Instruments LabVIEW Academy at Leeds, a voluntary computing course for 2nd year students.
