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, 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 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.

Reviewers from Swansea University
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.
Enrico is a Senior Lecturer at the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) of Swansea University and leader of the ESRI carbon dioxide capture and utilisation research programme. He holds a PhD in Chemistry from Maynooth University (Ireland), a Master in Science, Technology and Management from the University of Ferrara (Italy), and a Master in Industrial Chemistry from the University of Padua (Italy). Enrico has a broad expertise in materials development and application from both industry and academia. He was researcher at the Giulio Natta R&D Centre of LyondellBasell, and at the R&D laboratories of Tecres SPA. He was postdoctoral researcher in the Chemistry Department of Rice University (Texas), and in the Physics Department and Institute for NanoEnergy of the University of Houston (Texas). He is the recipient of the Giorgio Foschini Prize, XI Edition, from the Fondazione Carlo Erba, and was awarded a FÁS Science Challenge internship from the Irish National Training and Employment Authority. Enrico works for the future of clean, affordable, and sustainable energy
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.
I was born in 1983. In 2007 I received my Master Degree in Organic Chemistry from the University of Perugia (Italy). In 2011 I received my Ph.D in Inorganic Chemistry from the same University. I have been a Postdoc for three years in the same University. I was Visiting Scholar at the University of California, San Diego (USA) from January to March, 2013. From January 2015 until December 2016 I worked as a Postdoc at Paul Scherrer Institut (Switzerland). Starting from January 2017 I am working at the Energy Safety Research Institute at Swansea University as a MSCA COFUND Fellow My interests span over Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Crystallography, Solid State Chemistry, Carbon Dioxide Capture.
Professor Phil Reed obtained a D.Phil. from University of York, held a Research Fellowship at University of Oxford, and a Readership in Learning and Behaviour at University College London, before taking a University Chair in Psychology at Swansea University.
Phil's broad basic and applied research interests include: Learning and Behaviour; Autism, Special Needs, and Educational Interventions; and Psychology and Medicine, including Internet Addiction and Uro/Gynaecological Health. Phil has written several books (recently, Interventions for Autism: Evidence for Educational and Clinical Practice), published over 230 papers, and been invited to present his work at international conferences. For more information, please see Phil’s ResearchGate and Google Scholar sites.
Phil’s research includes evaluation of interventions, services, and products in relation to psychological and behavioural factors impacting effectiveness. Phil and his team have presented their work in Women’s Health at the National Assembly for Wales, and were awarded the ‘Medal of the President of the Republic’ of Italy in 2016 for scientific contribution to society.
Phil appears regularly in the media, and has been featured on: Science Channel’s ‘Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman’, ‘ITV Wales’, ‘BBC Wales’, and ‘BBC Radio Wales’. There have been two radio specials on Phil’s Internet Addiction research on syndicated US radio shows (Richie Allen; Katherine Albrecht), and features in Time Magazine, Cosmopolitan, The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail, and locally in Swansea Evening Post, and Western Mail.
Phil serves on Editorial Boards for leading journals, and held appointments for Departments for Health and Education, and Children in Wales Policy Council. Phil has a strong track record working with public-sector organisations, medical and educational charities, private businesses, and has received funding from Tenovus Cancer Care, NHS, LEAs, Baily Thomas Fund, ESRC, Leverhulme Trust, and Mechner Foundation.
Dr. Myrto-Panagiota Zacharof graduated from the National Technical Institute of Athens, Greece with a First class B.Sc honours degree in Biomedical Sciences. She completed her Master in Philosophy (M.Phil.) in Chemical Engineering at the University of Wales, Swansea and her Philosophy Doctorate (Ph.D.) in Chemical Engineering, Swansea University. Her research has been laying in the area of Microbial Biotechnology especially focused in Lactic Acid Bacteria, their metabolic end products and their usage in food and pharmaceutical industry. Having acquired a wealth of life experiences, which has provided her with many transferable key skills, Myrto’s current research is focused in Wastewater Engineering and Treatment regarding the recovery of valuable chemicals and nutrients from complex effluent streams. Being an active researcher, Myrto has shown interest in collaborating with academic specialists from various scientific fields and disciplines, including Arts and Humanities, in an effort to further broad her horizons and explore the different applications Sciences might have.
