The University Research Fellowship scheme aims to provide outstanding scientists, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields, with the opportunity to build an independent research career. The scheme is extremely competitive and URFs are expected to be strong candidates for permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships.

The newly appointed URFs are working on a wide variety of projects including exploring the missing link in galaxy formation, deep brain tissue imaging using nanodiamond, and the biomechanics of insect flight. Dr Hannah’s specialism is in Electron acceleration on the flaring Sun: simulations and hard X-ray statistics.
