Meet the Theme Directors

The theme directors will drive the establishment of the inter-disciplinary thematic areas that will develop leading internationally recognised research and innovation that address key issues facing society. This is one of the main objectives in the University Research and Innovation Strategy (2015-20)

The following themes will be used as vehicles to drive this agenda forward and provide support and development for interdisciplinary research activity across the institution.

  • Democratic Citizenship (Prof Leïla Choukroune)
  • Future and Emerging Technologies (Prof Adrian Hopgood)
  • Health and Wellbeing (Prof Gordon Blunn)
  • Security and Risk (Dr Peter Lee)
  • Sustainability and the Environment (Prof Gary Fones)

You can find out more about the themes on the RIS blog
