Also, in the latest round of Future Fellowships, the school was awarded two of only ten won by the university. Congratulations to Dr Dewei Chu and Dr Claudio Cazorla who will join the School’s academic staff later this year. 
 
As described later in this newsletter, we will bid farewell to Associate Professor Bandyopadhyay later this month. Generations of students will fondly remember his unique lecturing style!
