Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship

A Helix-based researcher has been awarded a prestigious Royal Academy of Engineering research fellowship. Dr Matthew Deakin will further develop his work on achieving net zero with hybrid power systems.

The Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowships programme has announced 17 new awardees.

Amongst the receipents is Dr Matthew Deakin who is based on the Helix site at the Urban Sciences Building. Matthew works with the Supergen Energy Networks Hub, the CLEARHEADS project (with University of Reading) and with the e4future project with the Turing Institute.

The Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowships support early-career researchers to establish successful research careers and become future research leaders in their fields. This new fellowship will support Matthew's work on achieving net zero with hybrid power systems.

Energy research

Energy research at Newcastle University is coordinated by the Centre for Eneregy.

The Centre works across a wide range of energy issues including:

  • Energy and energy efficiency
  • Security and resilience
  • Energy, justice and ethics

The Centre's mission is to contribute to the delivery of clean and affordable energy, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 7.

Earlier this year, Newcastle was ranked first in the UK and eighth in the world out of 1,500 universities on action taken towards the UNSDGs.

A full list of research fellowships awarded in this round is available from the Royal Academy of Engineering news page.
