INVITED SPEAKER : Prof Ursula Martin
INVITED TALK TITLE : So what’s all this about impact….
ABSTRACT : It seems as if everyone wants to capture and measure the “impact” of research – government, research funders, and the REF . But what do we mean by impact, why is it important, and how do we measure it anyway? The talk will look at the background to different kinds of impact, who wants to know about it and why, and reflect on how we encourage the good stuff, keep away from the bad stuff, and above all continue to do terrific science and engineering research.
BIO Ursula Martin is Professor of Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, where has been a Vice-Principal, and Director impactQM, a major EPSRC funded knowledge transfer initiative. She is a member of the UK Defence Science Advisory Council, and of the 2013 REF panel for computer science and informatics, and was the founding director of EPSRC ’s Mathematics for IT initiative, praised as a model of interdisciplinary good practice. She has published over 50 papers, and been PI on over £6 million in EPSRC , EU and industry research grants, including recent work with Microsoft, Qinetiq and Intel. Her work ranges from academic pure mathematics, to applied engineering work, exploited during extended periods in industry laboratories in Silicon Valley and Cambridge. The unifying theme is applying computer science methods to mathematical problems, and more recently she has been working with social scientists to understand how to make online collaborations in mathematics more effective. Ursula Martin is a Fellow of the British Computer Society, the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, and the Institute of Engineering and Technology, and was honoured with a CBE in the 2012 New Year’s Honours list. She is currently working at the School of Informatics in the University of Edinburgh as a SICSA Distinguished Visitor.
