Centenary chairs

The following centenary chair appointments have been made; more are to follow


Professor Zhongmin JinProfessor Zhongmin Jin will take up a chair in computational bioengineering in mechanical engineering on July 1. Professor Jin is professor of medical engineering at the University of Bradford. His research interests include computational modelling of tissue replacement, repair and regeneration, particularly tribology of synovial joints and artificial replacements, and continuum mechanics of biological tissues for tissue engineering applications.


Professor Jon LloydProfessor Jon Lloyd comes from the Max Planck Institute to take up a chair in earth system science in the school of geography on June 1. His research interests include isotopic fractionations during photosynthesis and respiration; exchange of carbon dioxide, water vapour and energy between natural ecosystems and the environment; integration of physiology into models of mass and energy transfer; photosynthetic gas exchange of plants and soil conditions and ecosystem structure.


Dr Lucia NagibDr Lucia Nagib takes up a chair in world cinema on 1 January 2005. Dr Nagib is presently associate professor at the University of Campinas, Brazil. Her research centres on cinematic realism, the new waves of the 1960s and contemporary new cinemas of the world. She is completing a book on Utopia in Brazilian cinema and developing a project on corporeal realism with reference to Japanese and East-Asian cinemas.


Professor Ian RoberstonProfessor Ian Roberston takes up a chair in microwave and millimetre-WQave circuits within the institute for microwave and photonics on June 1. He is currently professor of microwave subsystems engineering at the University of Surrey. His research centres on microwave and millimetre-wave circuit design and applications, and will be working on RFIC and MMIC design and system-in-package technology, as well as new research areas.


Dr David WatlingInstitute for Transport Studies senior lecturer David Watling has been appointed to a chair in transport analysis within the Institute. His research focuses on mathematical modelling and analysis of transport systems, and developing analytical, algorithmic or simulation methodologies, and the application of techniques from subjects such as dynamical systems, markov processes and operational research.
