About Swansea University

Swansea University (Welsh: Prifysgol Abertawe) is a public research university located in Swansea, Wales, United Kingdom. It was chartered as University College of Swansea in 1920,[4] as the fourth college of the University of Wales and in 1948 became the first campus university in UK. In 1996, it changed its name to the University of Wales Swansea[4] following structural changes within the University of Wales. The title of Swansea University was formally adopted on 1 September 2007 when the University of Wales became a non-membership confederal institution and the former members became universities in their own right.[5]

    Andrew R Barron

    After having gained his BSc and PhD degrees from Imperial College (1983 and 1986, respectively) and performing post-doctoral research at the University of Texas at Austin, Barron joined the faculty of the chemistry department at Harvard University (in 1987) as Associate Professor before being promoted to Associate Professor in 1991. In 1995 he Barron joined Rice University as the Charles W. Duncan, Jr. – Welch Chair of Chemistry and Professor of Materials Science and Nanoengineering. He was the first faculty member to be hired for the first nanotechnology center in the world. He is presently the Ser Cymru Chair of Low Carbon Energy and Environment at Swansea University.

    He is the author of over 400 publications, 20 Patents, 5 books (in chemistry and project mangement), and has graduated 33 PhD students. He has an h-factor or 52 and over 10,000 citations. His early research focused on the chemistry of aluminum and related elements and spanned catalysis, electronic materials and nanotechnology. His current research involves the application of nanotechnology to fundamental problems in energy and health systems for the developing world . His research group has projects involving water purification, water-less gas recovery, and carbon dioxide mitigation.

    Prof. Barron is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), and the recipient of several awards, including: Hümboldt Senior Scientist Research Award, the Corday Morgan Medal, the Meldola Medal, and the first Welch Foundation Norman Hackerman Award. In 2009 Barron was appointed as the Prince of Wales Visiting Innovator. In 2011 he won both the World Technology Award and HTCs Lifetime Achievement Award in Nanotechnology, and in 2013 he was awarded Applied Inorganic Chemistry Award by the RSC.

    Barron is the co-founder of several companies over a diverse range of industries: oil and gas, solar energy, and water treatment. He has just founded a program for water purification in developing regions of the world in order to create agriculture ready land from desert.

    In addition to teaching in chemistry and materials science, Prof. Barron created the first educational programs at Rice University to span the schools of Science, Engineering and Management. He was a co-founder of the Rice Alliance which is now the highest ranked entrepreneurship program in the US as well as the highest ranked business plan competition in the world. For relaxation Barron races cars, as both an amateur and professional, on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Adeline Paiement

    I am a lecturer in data science at Swansea University. My research interests include computer vision and machine learning applied to analysing scientific data, especially for medical and astrophysics applications.

    Until 2016, I was a post-doctoral researcher in the Visual Information Laboratory at the University of Bristol. I was working within the SPHERE (Sensor Platform for HEalthcare in a Residential Environment) project on automatic methods for the analysis of people's movements from RGB-depth images, with applications in rehabilitation and elderly people monitoring.

    I also completed my PhD at the University of Bristol in February 2014, under the supervision of Prof. Majid Mirmehdi. My PhD research was on the modelling of 3D and 4D objects from multimodal sparse and misaligned data in the frame of the analysis of cardiac cine MRIs.
