Welcoming Stephen’s appointment, Pam Thomas said:

Stephen has been a key participant in Warwick’s research success for some time. I warmly welcome his new appointment which provides focus in important areas for us. This is an exciting time for our research strategy at Warwick, where we are making significant investment of time in the new Research Executive team to ensure that we continue to remain at the very forefront of research."
