Event description

Description

The University Women in Science, Engineering & Technology (WiSET) group would like to invite staff and students to this year's Campbell Lecture with Professor Penny Endersby MA CEng CPhys FInstP FCMI, Division Head, Cyber and Information Systems Division, Dstl. Penny will walk the audience through her career and how it has developed alongside the defence sector.

Penny grew up in London, and gained her first research experience as a WISE scholar in her sixth form at GEC. She read Natural Sciences at Newnham College Cambridge. She joined the Royal Armaments Research and Development Establishment – a Dstl predecessor-in 1993 after a short stint researching fuel cells with British Gas. She spent ten years as a researcher into novel armour systems, ending as the UK expert on electric and intelligent armours. She led several groups in Dstl’s Physical Sciences Department before taking over as the department manager in 2009. During this time she was appointed a fellow of the Institute of Physics and served as a member of their governing council. In 2012 she transferred to lead the Information Management department, beginning the focus on cyber and C4ISR which led to her appointment as division head of Cyber and Information Systems Division in 2015. Penny holds a visiting professorship at Southampton University in Electronics and Computer Science. She is also honorary treasurer of Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, and a NED of Ploughshare Innovations Ltd.

The Campbell Lecture is an event designed to celebrate and highlight the high quality of women scientists both internationally and at Southampton at all stages of their careers. It is named in honour of Ishbel Campbell (1906-1997) who was one of the founding academics of the University of Southampton, a reader in Chemistry as well as a committed teacher and inspiration for women in science.
