UKRSE Committee 2016-2017

  • Created 4 years, 7 months ago
  • Voting closed 4 years, 7 months ago

Winners

  • Mihaela Duta mihaela.duta@psy.ox.ac.uk Oxford University

    Here are the two issues at the top of my priority list should I be elected for the committee: Develop and promote metrics to quantify the RSE's contribution to research in order to improve recognition and help career development Address the gender differences in the RSE community, particularly in training and software development.

  • Matthew Johnson matjoh@microsoft.com Microsoft Research Cambridge

    Like everyone else in our community, I have had many titles but I have always been a research software engineer. In my role as head of the Agile Projects Team at MSR Cambridge, I help link up RSEs with researchers to create dynamic partnerships that multiply what the lab is able to achieve, and indeed RSEs have been the secret to the lab's success from the beginning. I want to do everything I can both to raise the profile of what we do as RSEs all over the country and to support RSEs at every stage of their careers, and I see membership in this committee as an effective way to further that goal.

  • Ilian Todorov ilian.todorov@stfc.ac.uk Computational Scientist Science & Technology Facilities Council

    I lead the development of the UK flagship project for molecular dynamics, DL_POLY, and manage a team of RSEs in the Computational Chemistry group who provide support to other projects within CCP5 simulation software library. I am interested in HPC, scientific software life-cycle and sustainability, and materials modeling.

  • Robert Haines robert.haines@manchester.ac.uk Head of Research Software Engineering University of Manchester

    An important part of my job is providing a career path and funding for RSEs. I am working to further embed RSEs in the future plans of institutions and the Research Councils and look forward to helping the RSE movement expand both here in the UK and internationally.

  • Mark Turner mail.mdturner@gmail.com Research Software Engineer Digital Institute at Newcastle University

    The Digital Institute exists to empower research through the use of technology. My role is to support that research through the creation and maintaining of software used to help answer research questions and explore data. I specialise in the use of web technologies, scalable computing and data visualisation. I have worked on projects in a wide range of academic disciplines from archaeology, to medicine and social geography. An important part of my role is to champion the use and creation of high quality software for research, agile development practices and the use of software development tooling around the Newcastle University.

  • Rahul pobox@rahul.se

    I’m keen to build mainstream recognition for RSE as a role that identifies and facilitates opportunities for greater interaction between academic and commercial software engineering communities

Dr Paul Barber paul.barber@oncology.ox.ac.uk Oxford University

In my 16 years at the life science interface as a programmer and optical physicist I have experienced a broad range of recognition for the work of an RSE. I have been involved in many software development projects for cancer research that have ranged from low-level embedded C code for hardware control to Matlab and R scripts for bio-image informatics, all in multi-disciplinary collaborative environments. I believe in fostering and promoting our community to gain the recognition we deserve and also to further best practice.

Guy Robinson G.Robinson2@lse.ac.uk HPC Service Manager IMT/LSE

Over the past thirty years I have been engaged in numerous projects supporting research communities for which the development of software has been a key component. This has included coordination of support and development programs at national resource centres, specific development programs to advance HPC users, campus/community programs focused on 'non-traditional' users. It has been undertaken across the world working with academia and industry, look me up on linkedin for more details. In many cases the success of these projects depended on the software engineering: combining a range of skills from multiple disciplines alongside technical knowledge and best practices, and maintaining this at the leading edge throughout the project and beyond. I feel my experiences of supporting and promoting this work would make a significant contribution to the work of the UKRSE committee as we see continuing expansion of Research Computing and the role of software engineering, and the software engineer themselves, becoming increasingly important.

Hannes Loeffler Hannes.Loeffler@stfc.ac.uk Research Software Engineer Science & Technology Facilities Council

I was not aware myself until recently that I am actually working as a RSE but I realise now how important it is to define and shape this role to obtain proper recognition. I want to be an active part of this process and do have the time to commit to this.

David Pérez-Suárez d.perez-suarez@ucl.ac.uk University College London

Science has to benefit from software and not suffer from it. The only way to get to that point is by awarding the good use of it, promoting sustainability and helping researchers to remove their shy-walls on sharing their code. Research Software Engineers have a lot of work to make this a reality, but we can make it happen being united and organised.

I have been a researcher working with, for or, sometimes, as a RSE. I would like to tell everyone what I do is worthwhile.
