Many congratulations to Christ's Fellow Professor Mark Girolami FRSE on being elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering at their Annual General Meeting, held yesterday,Tuesday 20 September, for exceptional contributions to his field.

Mark is the Sir Kirby Laing Professor of Civil Engineering in Cambridge and Chief Scientist at The Alan Turing Institute.  He says "I am extremely honoured to have been elected to the fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering by my peers. I have been privileged to have led outstanding teams of engineers and scientists at the Alan Turing Institute where the new discipline of Data-Centric Engineering has been developed and is having a transformative impact in engineering science and practice. This could only be achieved through co-creation across multiple disciplines in both academia and industry. I have been very fortunate to work with highly skilled and passionate colleagues across research disciplines and in all engineering sectors where, together, our ambition has been to make a difference to society.”
