Dr Torres-Sánchez is an Associate Professor at Loughborough University, England, United Kingdom, and the Executive Director of the Centre of Doctoral Training in Embedded Intelligence (CDT-EI). She is the architect of the novel Doctoral Transition Zone™ Training ethos. She has been working in industry-informed, academically-led education for more than 10 years. Her research interests are in the design and manufacture of multifunctional materials with tailored properties to meet specific requirements. These have driven the development of technology to adjust cellular structure of foams via controlled ultrasonic irradiation. She has attracted >£6.1M of funding from Government, Innovate UK and Industry to investigate materials and structures for a broad range of applications and works at the interface with manufacturing and embedded intelligence systems. She is a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in the United Kingdom.
Prof. Paul P Conway CEng, SMIEEE, FIMechE is Dean of the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering and Distinguished Professor of Manufacturing Processes at Loughborough University, UK. He is currently Principle Investigator and Chair of the Executive for the UK's Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council's (EPSRC) Centre for Doctoral Training in Embedded Intelligence and was Director of EPSRC’s National Innovative Electronics Manufacturing Research Centre (2004-2015). His research includes: materials processing; integration of electronics, sensors and actuation into heterogeneous systems; manufacturing technology and processes. He has delivered >£55M of research from public and industry funding that has included research in cyber-physical simulation, design tools, pervasive sensing and intelligence, and informatics.
