Investing in our staff
Our staff and students are the heart of the University and are the key to its ongoing success.
Our five research areas are recognised internationally for their strength and quality. They are embedded in the University’s heritage and are excellent examples of the breadth of research at Loughborough.
Professor Rachel Thomson, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Teaching and Professor of Materials Engineering, is just one of our star performers. Find out about her cutting-edge research and how she is spearheading a major new STEM development on campus.
As Professor of Information and Knowledge Management, Professor Tom Jackson is just one of our leading lights. Tom is the Director of the Centre for Information Management. His research areas are Electronic Communication and Information Retrieval, and Applied and Theory based Knowledge Management.
