Prestigious Turing Institute Fellowships awarded to our researchers

Six researchers from the Faculty of Environment have been awarded a prestigious fellowship with The Alan Turing Institute.

Dr Charisma Choudhury and Professor Susan Grant-Muller from the Institute for Transport Studies and Professor Mark Birkin, Professor Alison Heppenstall, Dr Nick Malleson and Dr Nik Lomax from the School of Geography are part of 24 University of Leeds academics to receive the two-year Fellowships.

Awarded to those with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence or a related field, The Alan Turing Institute Fellowships are designed to support researchers in spending a portion of their time at the institute, developing projects alongside, and in collaboration with, other Turing Fellows.

“Being a university partner of The Alan Turing Institute provides opportunities for the University’s researchers to work closely with the Institute’s academic, industry and policy partners and undertake the most ambitious, impactful research possible.” Said Professor Lisa Roberts, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Research and Innovation.

As part of the University’s collaboration with The Alan Turing Institute, Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA) will be heavily involved in the coordination of projects and activity amongst Turing Fellows and their research teams.

“I am confident The Alan Turing Institute will benefit from LIDA’s interdisciplinary approach and the fantastic engagement we have achieved with national partners across the retail, energy and healthcare sectors” added Professor Roberts.
