A journey through the underworld: David Chapman's Inaugural Lecture

Professor David Chapman's inaugural lecture will focus on an exciting journey into the urban underworld and reveal our hidden infrastructure contained within, including pipes and metro tunnels, and its importance to 21st century living. It will demonstrate the incredible ingenuity involved over the centuries with creating our often-undervalued subsurface world. It will also cover aspects of the amazing technologies used to create, condition monitor and renew subsurface infrastructure, and the incredible challenges faced in this uncompromising and unforgiving environment. The vital interconnectivity between our surface and subsurface infrastructure and the importance of the ground in this relationship will be demonstrated.

Quantum vortex matter: insights from computer algebra - Nicola Wilkin's Inaugural Lecture

Professor Nicola Wilkin's inaugural lecture will focus on key physical systems, one is from a superconductor (a solid material) where the cortices therein are generated by an applied magnetic field and the other vortices in ultra-cold gases where the vortices are a response to rotation that is induced by lasers. Professor will also cover the key findings that were established using computer algebra, discussing how this intermediate tool between pencil and paper and full scale simulation can be exploited.
