University of Sheffield

Introducing the N8 CIR Theme Leads at the University of Sheffield, research groups, resources, seminars, and events happening locally that may be of interest.

Digital Health

Theme Lead: Dr Andrew Narracott Senior Lecturer, Department of Infection, Immunity & Cardiovascular Disease

I joined the University of Sheffield in 1993 and completed an undergraduate Physics Degree in 1997 and a PhD in Medical Physics in 2002.

The focus of my PhD study was the interaction between balloon catheters and coronary stents during stent deployment and involved the use of both experimental and numerical techniques to address the problem.

Between 2001 and 2007 I worked on a number of projects addressing a range of biomechanical applications. These include; Bloodsim (EU FP7), a commercial project funded by the Trustees for the Bowling-Pfizer Heart Valve Settlement Funds, a study of deep vein thrombosis treatment funded by the EPSRC and a six month period spent in Tokyo, Japan funded by the RIKEN institute to develop models of blood clotting in cerebral aneurysms.

Digital Humanities

Theme Lead: Michael Pidd Director of The Digital Humanities Institute

Michael has nearly 30 years of experience in developing, managing and delivering large collaborative research projects and technology R&D in the humanities and heritage subject domains.

He is currently Principal Investigator (UK) on the project C21 Editions: Scholarly Editing and Publishing in the Digital Age (AHRC and Irish Research Council) and Co-Investigator on the project Scoping Future Data Services (AHRC).

He was Principal Investigator on the following projects: Connecting Shakespeare (HEIF), Dewdrop (Jisc), Reinventing Local Public Libraries (HEIF), and Manuscripts Online (Jisc); Co-Investigator on the following projects: Intoxicants and Early Modernity (ESRC/AHRC), Linguistic DNA (AHRC), Beyond the Multiplex (AHRC) and Ways of Being in the Digital Age (ESRC); and has been the technical lead on a wide number of projects such as Digital Panopticon (AHRC).
