Our June dinner is on Wednesday 26th of June and is being hosted by the Bristol Robotics Lab at the University of the West of England, Frenchay Campus, from 6.30pm. Please arrive before 6.45pm to register and use the North Entrance of the campus to reach the lab.
A light finger buffet will be provided, courtesy of UWE’s Faculty of the Environment and Technology.
This promises to be a really interesting and enjoyable event. Please bring friends and colleagues along. Babies held in arms are welcome and teenage children are welcome too - no under 13's please because of the laboratory equipment. As usual, guys are very welcome - please accompany a girl geek so that girls do not get outnumbered.
It is important that all attendees are registered for this event.
We will have six speakers, each giving a short talk about their passion that is their research in the lab.
Praminda Caleb-Solly’s current research is in user-centred design methods for interactive systems in areas such as assistive technology, mHealth and context-based learning.
Sanja Dogramadzi’s research includes robots for minimally invasive surgical procedures and rehabilitation.
Ella Gale is researching memristors and is interested in novel technologies using them, specifically neuromorphic (brain-like) and unconventional computers.
Lily Chambers is working on biodegradable robots fuelled by microbial fuel cells and her research aims to produce the first complete biodegradable artificial organism.
Dorothy Monekosso is working jointly with the Bath Institute of Medical engineering, and her research is focussed on intelligent systems and smart home technology to support independent living.
Janice Kiely has recently been awarded a prestigious Engineering Enterprise Fellowship by the Royal Academy of Engineering for her work in developing bio-sensing systems for rapid, automated detection of food contaminations such as salmonella, e. coli and listeria, innovating at the interface of engineering and biochemistry.
Together, the speakers will provide insights into a diverse range of innovative research areas.
