About University of Cambridge
Founded in 1209, Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's fourth-oldest surviving university. It grew out of an association of scholars who left the University of Oxford after a dispute with townsfolk. The two ancient universities share many common features and are often jointly referred to as "Oxbridge". Cambridge is widely regarded as one of the world's most influential and prestigious universities.

Graduation from Karolinska Institutet 2009. Rotating Internship at S:t Görans Hospital Stockholm 2010-2012. Pre-resident service at the Neurosurgical Department, Karolinska Institutet from 2009-2014. Defended my PhD-thesis in May 2015, "On Biomarkers in Traumatic Brain Injury". Post doc at Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience since May 2015 and at University of Cambridge, Department of Clinical Neurosciences since 2016. A special interest in neuro-intensive care and neuro-monitoring of patients suffering from acute brain injury.
I'm exploring new applications of terahertz sensing in areas relevant to chemical engineering, in particular pharmaceutics, starting from generating novel fundamental insights to developing commercial solutions in collaboration with industrial partners.

Justin Bishop is Senior Consultant in Transport Planning for Arup and Academic Collaborator in the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering. Formerly, he was a Research Associate in Transport Analysis in the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering and Visiting Research Associate in the Transport Studies Unit at the University of Oxford. He works on projects around electric power generation, road transport and the built environment.
Christian Frezza is an MRC Programme Leader at the MRC Cancer Unit in Cambridge. He studied Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Padova, Italy, and gained his MSc in 2002, after a period of research on mitochondrial toxicity induced by photoactivable anticancer drugs.
Christian then joined the laboratory of Luca Scorrano in Padova to start a PhD on mitochondrial dynamics and apoptosis. In 2008 he moved to the Beatson Institute of Cancer Research in Glasgow, as recipient of an EMBO Long Term Fellowship, where he investigated the role of mitochondrial defects in tumorigenesis. Christian’s research is focussed on the understanding of cellular metabolism and the intricacies of the process of cellular transformation, particularly focusing on the metabolic relation between cancer cells and the surrounding tissues. His major goal now is to exploit this biochemical knowledge to pioneer novel therapeutic strategies for cancer.
Andrew gained a BA in Psychology at Cardiff University in 2003. His PhD, 'Binaural Resolution,' was awarded in 2006 and involved measuring and modelling binaural temporal window durations and auditory filter widths. Andrew's first postdoctoral position involved research in the field of vision science, also at Cardiff University, assessing accuracy and precision of eye movements in the ageing population. He then worked as a Research Fellow at the Vision and Eye Research Unit (VERU) at Anglia Ruskin University. The project involved investigating how blind and low vision listeners made use of two acoustic distance cues (level and reverberation) to improve their spatial awareness, and how use of acoustic cues was enhanced among blind listeners. After this, he worked as a Research Associate at Cambridge University in Professor Brian Moore's research group, looking at auditory perception among hearing impaired and blind listeners. His following post was Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at The Centre for the Study of the Senses (CenSes) at the Institute of Philosophy at University of London with Sir Colin Blakemore. The role involved investigating whether vision can influence perceived sound pitch, and investigating crossmodal perceptual abilities in musicians, including those with absolute pitch perception, and non-musicians.
Andrew is interested in how sensory impairment affects spatial awareness, and to what extent supra-normal performance for auditory spatial tasks among blind listeners, such as distance discrimination and azimuthal localization, can be explained by cross-modal cortical reorganization. His research uses virtualization techniques and self-report to investigate whether accurate internal representations of auditory space are formed in the absence of a visual signal, and under what conditions blind individuals demonstrate supra-normal hearing abilities. His work looks at spatial awareness and speech perception among hearing impaired and blind listeners, and how echolocation can be used to obtain information about a person's surroundings and guide locomotion. Andrew is a member of the British Society of Audiology and Cambridge Neuroscience. He is a Visiting Researcher at Cambridge University and a Visiting Fellow at Anglia Ruskin University.
Florian Markowetz holds degrees in Mathematics and Philosophy from University of Heidelberg and a PhD in Computational Biology from Free University Berlin. He was affiliated with the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin. The Max Planck Society honoured his PhD thesis with an Otto-Hahn medal. He pursued post-doctoral research at Princeton University at the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. Since 01/2009 he is a group leader at the CRUK Cambridge Institute at the University of Cambridge. In 2014 he was promoted to tenured senior group leader.
