The Alan Turing Institute and its five partner universities have announced a list of inaugural Faculty Fellows.
The Fellows are faculty staff in data science who will be spending a significant amount of time engaging with institute activities. By drawing upon the combined expertise of Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, UCL and Warwick a unique range of skills and backgrounds are represented, ranging from branches of the Computational, Mathematical and Social Sciences.
Institute Director Andrew Blake FREng FRS said:
“Appointment of the Faculty Fellows is a real landmark for the Institute. Thanks to the stellar research strength of our founding member universities, we have been able to build up a world class faculty presence in remarkably quick time. This sets us up to bring the Institute’s research programme into full operation over the summer, ready to move into a beautiful new space in the British Library, together also with new research fellows and research students, in September. Then the work of the Institute begins in earnest.”

The list includes several Fellows of the Royal Society, as well as a Fellow of the British Academy and a past president of the London Mathematical Society. The Faculty Fellows, with the newly recruited Alan Turing Institute Research Fellows will lead the development of new branches of data science, and supervise graduate students in the institute.
