Posted on Tuesday 30th July 2013

Dr. Fotis Papadopoulos

Research fellow

Fotis is currently working on an EU project called EMOTE as a research fellow which aims to improve the use of artificial tutors as learning-facilitator tools in schools (www.emote-project.eu). Previously, he was a Research Assistant on another EU project called LIREC which explored the cohabitation of humans and artificial intelligent companions in domestic environments.

Puyu Wang

Research Fellow in Electrical Power Systems

Developing control and protection strategies for future multi-terminal VSC HVDC Grids

Phil Weber

Research Fellow in Automatic Speech Recognition

Phil has recently submitted his thesis for a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University. Previously he worked as a UNIX and storage systems administrator, systems engineer, systems integrator, analyst programmer. 

 

Amy Wilkins

Project Manager – EMOTE

EMOTE aims to improve the use of artificial tutors as learning-facilitator tools. These platforms still fail to engage the students the same way a teacher does, as they lack the personal, empathy elements. Prior to joining the University Amy worked in research and project management in the private/charity sector, specialising in the field of equality and human rights.

Other new staff include:

  • Louis Saade, Research Associate
  • Anqi Wang, Research & Education Liaison Officer
