Director's Message

Dear Colleagues,

In case you didn’t catch the earlier announcement, James Irwin has accepted the role of School Manager.  Please join me in congratulating him.

A reminder about the two School positions now open in the School (see below).

This week’s pic is of an artistic work taken from the recent PhD examination of Deirdre Feeney,  School of Art & Design. Many thanks to the following RSPE staff who collaborated with Deirdre to help realise her concepts: Neil Devlin (DQS), Paul Redman (EU), Dennis Gibson (EU), Luke Materne (EU), Tom Cave (MW) and John Debs (DQS) and Ella Sayers (MakerSpace).  There were many technically challenging aspect of this realisation and it is so pleasing to see physics working across campus.

Enjoy the short week.

Tim
