Two University researchers have been made Fellows of the Royal Society.
Alan Bundy, Professor of Automated Reasoning, and Andrew Miller, Professor of Systems Biology, have both joined the Royal Society’s prestigious Fellowship.
Since joining the University in 1971, Professor Bundy has made world-leading contributions to both automated reasoning and the automated formation and evolution of representations of knowledge.
From 1998 to 2001, Professor Bundy was the head of the University’s newly created Division of Informatics (now School of Informatics), which has grown to be the largest academic department of its kind in the UK.
From 2000 to 2005, he was a founding convenor of the UK Computing Research Committee, which plays an advocacy role for computing research in the UK.
Professor Andrew Miller investigates how the circadian clock, or biological clock, is constructed and adjusted and how it affects plant life.
The biologist is Associate Director of SynthSys, an interdisciplinary research centre exploring synthetic and systems biology, based at the University.
Professor Miller has previously served as Principal Investigator for the GARNet research community and as Systems Biology Theme Director for the Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance.
