University of Warwick: University of Warwick names 37 researchers who become Turing Fellows this academic year

37 Warwick researchers from across the fields of mathematics, life sciences, statistics, computer science, business, medicine and engineering have been named as Fellows of the Alan Turing Institute this year.

Turing Fellows are scholars with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence (AI) or a related field, whose research will be significantly enhanced through active involvement with the Turing network of universities and partners. All the Fellows answered an open competitive call and of the successful Warwick cohort, 15 are brand new to Turing and 22 have previous experience.

The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and AI, aims to attract and retain exceptional researchers in artificial intelligence and the University of Warwick is a founding partner.

Covering a broad view of AI, including applications of foundational disciplines across mathematical sciences, statistical sciences, computational sciences and engineering, Fellows work together across disciplines and have the opportunity to collaborate with academia, industry, government and the third sector.

Pro Vice Chancellor for Research at the University of Warwick, Professor Caroline Meyer, said: “I am delighted that so many Warwick researchers have been names as Fellows of the Alan Turing Institute this year. It shows Warwick’s strength and breadth when it comes to working at the forefront of data science and AI.

“There is a diverse range of expertise in this cohort ranging from epidemiology and disease to the disciplines of pure mathematics and computational sciences. Data Science is one of the key research priorities for the University of Warwick and our people continue to drive research through collaborative work with institutions like Turing.”
