EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future


The list below shows the academic researchers and supervisors involved in the Sensor CDT. As a student you will probably meet most of them during your time with the Sensor CDT, either as a lecturer, a supervisor for a project or practical or indeed as one of your PhD supervisors.
Please note that this list of supervisors is not fixed and might be updated from time to time. You should not assume that every person listed here will actually be available as a PhD supervisor.
