Institutional Academic Leads

Academic engagement is at the very heart of the ongoing success of the SWDTP which has more than 300 PhD students now studying, plus post-doctoral fellows and a fast stream of alumni.

SWDTP Institutional Academic Leads act as the lead for their home institutions for all academic matters related to the business of SWDTP, primarily in contact with the assigned Pathway Leads but also reaching out to supervisors. 

The current Institutional Academic Leads are:
