UCLIC Director among outstanding scientists elected as Fellows of the Royal Society
On 10 May 2022, more than 60 exceptional scientists from around the world were elected Fellows and Foreign Members of the Royal Society. The 51 Fellows and 10 Foreign Members along with one Honorary Fellow were selected for their outstanding contributions to science, their work spanning multiple disciplines, from using AI to better detect strokes to developing new technologies for improved energy storage and expanding our understanding of genetic cancer risk factors in non-European populations.
UCLIC DIrector, Professor Yvonne Rogers, was elected for her pioneering contributions to the field of Ubiquitous Computing - interactive technologies and objects which can enhance our daily work and activities.
Sir Adrian Smith, President of The Royal Society, said:
"It is an honour to welcome so many outstanding researchers from around the world into the Fellowship of the Royal Society. Through their careers so far, these researchers have helped further our understanding of human disease, biodiversity loss and the origins of the universe. I am also pleased to see so many new Fellows working in areas likely to have a transformative impact on our society over this century, from new materials and energy technologies to synthetic biology and artificial intelligence. I look forward to seeing what great things they will achieve in the years ahead."
