Three new Official Fellows join Reuben College Governing Body

We are pleased to introduce three new Official Fellows who have been elected to the Reuben College Governing Body from 1st July 2021.

Lei Clifton and Ioannis Havoutis join us as Official Fellows in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and Anupama Sen as Official Fellow in the Environmental Change theme.

In their own words, Lei, Ioannis and Anupama explain why they are excited to be joining Reuben College and what they are most looking forward to.

Lei Clifton

Lei Clifton is a senior researcher with the Nuffield Department of Population Health, and leads a programme of research in translational epidemiology:

"I have been a mentor in the Medical Sciences Division for the past six years, and I’m really looking forward to the opportunities to engage with and support Reuben College students in their academic lives. As well as my professional research, I have a long-standing personal interest in psychology and well-being, and I’m sure I’ll particularly enjoy working with Reuben students to ensure we develop a strong, supportive and intellectually stimulating community, in which every individual can thrive."

Ioannis Havoutis

Ioannis Havoutis is a lecturer in robotics, whose research combines dynamic whole-body motion planning and control with machine learning, focusing on robots with arms and legs:

"I am very excited to join Oxford's newest college. Reuben's strong focus on interdisciplinary collaboration and academic excellence, along with its outward-looking nature, deeply resonate with my work in robotics. I am looking forward to being a part of this vibrant collegiate community, and working with students and fellows to build up a rich programme of intellectual exchange for the AI & ML research theme." 

Anupama Sen

Anupama Sen is a senior research fellow at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, with her main focus of research on the applied economics of energy in developing countries:

"I very much look forward to being a part of the inclusive community at Reuben College. What attracted me to the College was its ethos of promoting interdisciplinary thinking and progressive intellectual debate, while at the same time encouraging wider engagement with stakeholders outside of academia who are working to find solutions ‘on the ground’. This is important to me as a researcher in the social sciences working on issues that lie at the cusp of academia and industry."
