This prestigious lecture series showcases the University’s Research Fellows, who will present their cutting-edge research and outline their careers to-date, offering insight into the careers of some of Loughborough’s leading Early Career Researchers.

Dr Bianca Howard, from the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering will give the first lecture entitled ‘The pathway to FlexTECC: Flexible Timing of Energy Consumption in Communities’.

In this talk, Dr Howard will discuss her pathway to her fellowship from a career perspective, the organisational structure of the fellowship, and the initial findings from her research.

Dr Howard is an EPSRC Innovation Fellow and Lecturer in Urban Energy Modelling. Prior to joining Loughborough, she received her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Columbia University followed by a postdoctoral research position at Imperial College London. 

Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research, Professor Steve Rothberg said: “The Fellowship Inaugural Lecture series is an important way we highlight the achievements of our community of externally funded Fellows at Loughborough.

“Whilst celebrating Bianca’s achievements, the lecture allows colleagues to learn more about her exciting research and for potential future Fellowship applicants to gain insights into how to succeed.”

Dr Howard’s lecture marks the end of a week of activities organised at the University to celebrate the National Postdoc Appreciation Week in the US. More information about Loughborough’s activities to celebrate this can be found here.
