Anya Skatova and Claire Haworth announced as Fellows of The Alan Turing Institute
Press release issued: 1 November 2018
The School of Psychological Science is delighted to announce that two of its academics have been announced as Fellows of The Alan Turing Institute, along with 28 other academics from the University of Bristol. Congratulations to both Anya Skatova and Claire Haworth!
Anya and Claire have been awarded the Fellowship as part of the university partnership with the Turing. Fellowships span many fields including key Turing interests in urban analytics, defence and health. The Bristol Turing Fellows join a prestigious group of 400 researchers from across the Turing partnership comprising thirteen leading UK universities working together to push the boundaries of data science and artificial intelligence for the public good.
Turing Fellows are scholars with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence or a related field, whose research would be significantly enhanced through active involvement with the Turing network of universities and partners.
The fellowships will begin on the 1 November for two years and will provide an opportunity for collaboration, engagement with industrial partners, Government and the third sector.
Professor Nishan Canagarajah, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research at the University of Bristol, said: “We would like to congratulate our academics who have received these prestigious fellowships. Their work will provide breakthroughs in a variety of disciplines supporting the mission and aspirations of the Institute and the University.”
Professor Kate Robson Brown, Director of the Jean Golding Institute and Turing University Lead, added: “Each of these new Alan Turing Institute fellowships celebrates the excellent achievements and vision of individual researchers. Together they represent the beginning of an exciting chapter for data science, AI, and data intensive research at Bristol, providing a new opportunity for collaboration to address challenges facing society, science and the economy.”
A big congratulations to Anya and Claire on this fantastic news!
