Professor Susan Perkin, Chemistry, said, ‘I am honoured to have been given this opportunity by the ERC and excited to be setting out on this voyage together with my team.’  

The ELECTROLYTE project will study electrolytic materials ranging from battery electrolytes to the interior of halophilic organisms, with the aim of uncovering the fundamental physical principles determining their collective properties and interactions.

Professor Andrea Vedaldi, Engineering Science, is professor of computer vision and machine learning.

His research is into the methods of understanding images and videos without manual supervision and he has worked on getting machines to understand images in detail.
