Heriot-Watt Academic is Royal Society University Research Fellow

A Heriot-Watt academic has been named in the list of University Research Fellows (URFs) for 2014.

Dr Kartic Subr is one of 43 new URFs who will take their posts at institutions across the UK from October. The Royal Society say their University Research Fellowship scheme aims to provide outstanding scientists, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields, with the opportunity to build an independent research career. The scheme is extremely competitive and URFs are expected to be strong candidates for permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships.

Dr Subr, Associate Professor in the Institute of Sensors, Signals & Systems in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, was made a fellow for his work in Interactive-View Imaging of Dynamic Events (IVIDE).

The Royal Society aims to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.
