"I joined UoM as a postdoc researching wildfires, but my favourite part of the job was outreach to schools and young people, and eventually I realised I could do that as a career! I’ve been a public engagement manager for six years and I love it – my degree was in physics so it’s great getting to find out about new discoveries and help our staff and students creatively engage diverse audiences with my favourite subject." ⁠

"I am a Professor of Aerospace Engineering, the Head of the Aerospace Research Institute and Director of the Northwest Composites Centre at the University of Manchester.  Prior to this, I held professorial positions at Imperial College London (Department of Aeronautics) and the University of Sheffield (their 1st Professor of Aerospace Engineering). I am a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and a leading authority in mechanics and failure of aerospace composite materials with over 400 archived articles and conference proceedings. Some 40 PhD students have successfully completed their studies under my supervision and guidance. My research is currently funded by industry, Research Councils UK and EU." ⁠
