Professorial promotions celebration 2019

A promotion to Professor is a professional and personal achievement – it recognises tenacity, drive and dedication to a discipline, as well as the high esteem that an individual’s work and research is held in both nationally and internationally.

I was delighted to attend our professorial promotions celebration in June and personally congratulate 2019's cohort of promoted academics. They have made an outstanding contribution during their time here at Warwick, across their departments, faculties and the Warwick community.

I’m incredibly proud these new Professors are part of Warwick, and look forward to the next chapter in their academic careers."

Stuart Croft, Vice Chancellor

Why I went into an academic career

For me an academic career has a sense of deep commitment, if not dedication, to lifelong learning. I enjoy teaching very much and engage with it on a very personal level. I get to not only share my knowledge and experience, but to dig deeply into topics and learn something new alongside my students!”

Professor Georgia Kremmyda, Engineering

Academic research is all about solving difficult problems and there is little I enjoy more. I cannot imagine a more fortunate position than to be paid for doing something I love. The opportunity to work with like-minded colleagues and students just adds to the appeal.”

Professor Daniel Sgroi, Economics

The best thing about working as an academic at Warwick is...

Undoubtedly, the people at Warwick: my colleagues in the Law School are incredibly supportive, generous and inspirational people while the students are a continuous source of excitement and challenge. I feel very fortunate to work amongst them all.”

Professor Dallal Stevens, Law

Warwick values its academic voices, something which is becoming rarer in 21st Century academia. It’s also a nice place to work. There are a lot of friendly and supportive people here.”

Professor Paul Warmington, Centre for Education Studies
