Gareth Roberts' research interests are centred on the quantum dynamics of ultrafast laser-molecule interactions and molecular collisions. He was brought up in South Wales and holds degrees from the Universities of London and Cambridge. His interest in ultrafast phenomena was triggered in 1989 by an inspirational stay as a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow in the laboratory of Professor A. H. Zewail at the California Institute of Technology. He is 36 years old and is currently a Royal Society University Research Fellow at Cambridge University and a Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge.
M. J. Sutcliffe
Born in Rochdale, Lancashire, Michael Sutcliffe (left) studied at Bristol, where he graduated with first class honours in chemical physics in 1985, and at Birkbeck College, London, where he obtained his PhD in protein modelling in 1988. Aged 35, he was a SERC/NATO Fellow at Oxford University and Junior Research Fellow at Linacre College, a Royal Society University Fellow at Leicester University, and joined Leicester University as a Lecturer in 1998, where he is currently Reader. His research involves the development and use of computational methods to address one of the major challenges in the biomolecular sciences, understanding the relationship between protein structure and function. He has over 60 publications, including specialised reviews, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry in 1999. His recreational interests include hill walking, cycling and canoeing.
