EPSRC Research Software Engineer Fellow
Dr Ian Bush started at the Centre in April 2016 as an EPSRC Research Software Engineer Fellow (The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the UK's main agency for funding research in engineering and the physical sciences). He had previously worked within the ARC (Advanced Research Computing) Facility which helps researchers access advanced research computing facilities, locally, nationally and internationally.
As an EPSRC Fellow, Dr Bush is exploiting high end computational facilities to enable accurate modelling of a number of scientific processes, from the microscopic (such as how X-rays interact with in vivo proteins) to the macroscopic (for example the ITER project, a 10 billion Euro fusion power facility in France).
