Interested in joining the group?

I am keen on working together with enthusiastic researchers according to UCL’s motto “Let all come who by merit deserve the most reward”. So, please do not hesitate to contact me if you are interested in one of my research topics and have some funding scheme in mind. I will be highly supportive. There are many schemes available, in particular, I would like to mention fellowships by the EPSRC, Wellcome Trust, Royal Academy of Engineering, and Royal Society. I advise research students to consider having a look at a number of scholarships.
