Professor receives Royal Society Award

Professor Graham Hargrave has been appointed as a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award holder.

Professor Hargrave, from the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, is one of 28 academics to be appointed by the Royal Society, the UK’s national academy of science. Graham is Professor of Optical Diagnostics in Wolfson.

Jointly funded by the Wolfson Foundation and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the scheme aims to provide universities with additional support to enable them to attract science talent from overseas and retain respected UK scientists of outstanding achievement and potential.

The newly appointed award holders are working on a wide range of projects including radar-tracking the movement patterns of bees, assessing how polar ice sheets contribute to global sea level rise, and the development of machine learning for precision medicine.
