Supervisors

The Horizon CDT has an active network of 108 academics whose involvement in the CDT includes PhD and Practice Led Project Supervision, CDT Management, internal assessor, Mentoring, Research Methods Seminars, taking part in PhD Experience Q&A lunchtime sessions and attendance at the annual Retreat.

Many of our supervisors are part of the following research groups:

Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute involves leading researchers whose expertise spans computer science, user-centred design, satellite positioning systems, geographical information systems, science and society, and innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as the three key sectors energy, transportation and the creative industries. The centre combines internationally leading research groups from across the UK.

The Mixed Reality Laboratory (MRL) is an interdisciplinary facility where computer scientists, psychologists, sociologists, architects and artists collaborate to explore the potential of ubiquitous technologies to shape everyday life.

The Human Factors Research Group (HFRG) focuses on understanding the characteristics and capabilities of people individually and in teams, and improving knowledge about people’s interaction with systems in manufacturing and process control, transport, service and leisure industries.

Nottingham Geospatial Institute (NGI) is a leading cross-disciplinary research and teaching institute at The University of Nottingham.  NGI specialises in spatial and location-based science and engineering, empowered by satellite positioning, remote sensing and integrated technologies. Formed in 2011, NGI is the result of a merger between the Institute of Engineering Surveying and Space Geodesy and the Centre for Geospatial Science.

The Haydn Green Institute for Enterprise and Innovation (HGI) specialises in entrepreneurship education ranging from creative problem solving and effective decision making to technology transfer, commercialisation and innovation alongside research into these areas.

The Institute for Science and Society (ISS) examines the social, ethical, legal and cultural implications of science and technology including the movement of innovations from laboratory to practice, the nature and implications of public responses to new technologies, and public policy responses.
