Dr Sinan Acikgoz

Dr Sinan Acikgoz holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the Middle East Technical University in Turkey and a PhD degree in Engineering from the University of Cambridge, UK. His PhD examined the fundamental dynamics of structures which are allowed to rock on their foundations. Sinan’s work provided an analytical basis for this design approach which has the potential to minimise the significant damage and financial losses caused by earthquakes.

Dr Kun Li

Dr Li is a Research Associate (Photonics Engineer) for the Cambridge Centre for Photonic Devices and Sensors (CPDS), directed by Professor Daping Chu, in the Electrical Engineering Division. His research area and interests are novel display technologies, such as head-up display for automobiles, auto-stereoscopic display for mobile devices and switchable window display for buildings, as well as liquid crystal based optical devices including Liquid Crystal on Si (LCoS) spatial light modulators (SLMs).

Dr Marianne Hem Eriksen

Dr Hem Eriksen is an archaeologist specialising in Scandinavia’s later prehistory. Her PhD project (2015, University of Oslo) investigated a specific, and highly charged, architectural element – the doorway – of domestic architecture in Late Iron Age/Viking Age Scandinavia (550-1050 CE). The dissertation was awarded His Majesty the King’s Gold Medal for scientific inquiry by younger scholars of excellence (2016).

Dr Mario Amado-Montero

Dr Amado-Montero received a PhD in condensed matter physics from the University Complutense of Madrid, Spain where he studied the electronic and structure and transport properties in graphene and related nanoscopic systems. After completing his PhD in 2011, he worked at the Istituto Nanoscienze and Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, Italy as a postdoctoral research associate. In Italy, his research was focused on the generation of lateral Josephson junctions based on standard superconductors coupled to high spin-orbit coupling materials.
