PDA Christmas Lecture - Monday 12 December 2016

Venue: Lecture Theatre 2, Level B, South Academic Block, Southampton General Hospital
Time: 2.30pm - 4.30pm 

The Postdoctoral Association are pleased to invite you to our 2016 Christmas Lecture

We are delighted to have Guest Speaker, Dr Tim Adlam in attendance who is Head of Mechanical Engineering at Designability.

Title: 'Useful, Usable, Beautiful and Accessible? Designing technology for a better life'

Biography: Dr Tim Adlam is an engineer, designer, researcher and father of a disabled child, who is working in technology for people with disabilities. He is Head of Mechanical Engineering at the charity Designability where he has been working to understand and solve problems for over 20 years. His work has ranged from bicycles for children with restricted growth, through smart house systems for people with dementia, to dynamic seating for children with dystonia. After working initially in bridge girder manufacturing, Tim joined Designability in 1996 and made a substantial contribution to Designability’s pioneering work on technology for people with dementia. He completed his PhD in dynamic seating in 2012 and is now leading a research programme in technology to support the participation of children with complex disabilities. Tim has learned that to solve the right problem, we must first understand the person.

This year's Deans' Awards and announcement of the winners will be presented at the end of the lecture by Professor Iain Cameron.

Please join us for mince pies and mulled wine at the end of the lecture in the foyer.
