Dr. Niladri Banerjee is a lecturer in the Department of Physics at Loughborough University. His research interests are in the area of magnetism, spintronic devices and proximity effects in superconductor-ferromagnet heterostructures.

Dr Sarah Parker joined the University in 2016. Her research within the School of Arts, English and Drama focuses on nineteenth and twentieth-century literature, with an emphasis on women’s poetry, decadence and aestheticism, gender and sexualities, and visual cultures.

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.

Professor Emily Keightley, who's reasearch focuses on Media and Memory Studies, explains how being part of the Communication and Culture ‘Beacon’ has opened up opportunities for new cross-disciplinary research collaborations.
