Sir Colin Humphreys
Professor of Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London
Sir Humphreys is Professor of Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London. He is the former Goldsmiths’ Professor of Materials Science at the University of Cambridge and the Professor of Experimental Physics at the Royal Institution in London.
He served as President of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining in 2002 and 2003. His research interests include “all aspects of electron microscopy and analysis, semiconductors (particularly gallium nitride), ultra-high temperature aerospace materials and superconductors.“
Sir Humphreys was educated at Luton Grammar School, Imperial College London (BSc) and Churchill College, Cambridge, where he was awarded a PhD.
Dr. Daniel Slocombe
BEng PhD FHEA, Cardiff University
Dr. Slocombe is Deputy Head of the Centre for High Frequency Engineering at Cardiff University.
He carries out interdisciplinary research in engineering and chemistry, with a focus upon electromagnetics and materials with applications in energy and environmental science. He currently has research collaborations with departments of chemistry, physics, pharmacy, and biosciences, all taking advantage of the unique electromagnetic properties of microwaves in innovative ways.
He is currently working on microwave catalysis for generation of clean hydrogen fuel, the destruction of plastic waste, manufacture of battery materials and new analytical and spectroscopic techniques for measuring a wide range of chemical processes.
Dr. Gari Owen
Founder, Annwvyn Solutions
Dr. Gari Owen is founder of Annwvyn Solutions in the United Kingdom.
Gari P. Owen was educated at the University of Wales (1967-1973) and worked for 30 years in Government (Home Office and Ministry of Defence) in research and development, international programmes and identifying new requirements.
Following his career as a scientist for Home Office and Ministry of Defence in Britain, Owen has recently been working as an independent consultant to Government and advising in the fields of defense, security, environment, and future technologies.
Dr. Adrian Porch
Professor, Cardiff University
Professor Porch is with Cardiff’s Centre for High Frequency Engineering, which he led from 2010-2022. He has over 36 years of research experience in electromagnetic modelling and applications of materials at radio and microwave frequencies.
He champions interdisciplinary research and has research interactions across all of the physical sciences. In recent years his research has expanded into the area of medical microwave devices, e.g. Wellcome Trust project to develop a non-invasive blood glucose meter using his patented microwave technology, currently undergoing commercialisation in partnership with GlucoRx (via a UKRI knowledge transfer partnership).
Dr. Peter Dobson OBE
Emeritus Fellow, University of Oxford
Previously, Dr. Peter Dobson was Academic Director of Oxford University’s Begbroke Science Park.
He retains an interest in physics, especially in electromagnetic effects from extremely low frequencies to optical frequencies, especially plasmonic effects.
He is currently investigating new methods of synthesis of nanoparticles for several applications. He also works on biosensors and have an association with groups developing several types of sensor for virus detection.
He has collaborated with the Chemistry Dept in Oxford on several energy projects: recovering chemicals from waste plastic, stripping hydrogen from hydrocarbons and making pure carbon and the synthesis of jet fuel from carbon dioxide and hydrogen.
