The Faculty of Engineering would like to welcome Professor Nigel Titchener-Hooker, Professor of Biochemical Engineering to his new post as Dean of Engineering. Professor Titchener Hooker succeeds Professor Anthony Finkelstein, who is leaving his post after five years to take up the post of Chief Scientific Advisor for National Security in her majesty’s government
Professor Titchener Hooker said:
“I’d like to thank Anthony Finkelstein for taking the Faculty forward over the past 5 years with huge vision, passion and commitment. We all owe Anthony a good deal as he has established a fabulous legacy for us to build upon – and that’s the challenge for each of us, and one in which we all need to play our parts.”
Professor Finkelstein said:
“I am exceptionally proud to have led the clever, talented, dedicated staff of the Faculty… I know that what we have achieved together is simply a step on a journey that will continue to further and greater success.”
Professor Finkelstein will still retain an academic position at UCL and will continue his research work in the newly founded Alan Turing Institute, a partnership between UCL, Warwick, Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh universities.
