Four academics at the University of Warwick have been awarded a UKRI Future Leader Fellowship, providing world class research in topics ranging from stellar explosions, medieval medical texts for modern medicines, synthetic biology and climate –related financial risks.
Professor Wanda Lewis, from the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
In 2004, she was elected a Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers, which means that she is one of a very few, if not the first female to hold Fellowships at both the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Royal Society of Arts.
UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship award to simulate and develop chemical reactions fuelled by sunlight and greenhouse gases
