    Dr Lisa Jardine-Wright, University of Cambridge, UK

    Universities worldwide are dedicated to raising the aspirations of young people and inspiring them to go on and study science at university. As an astrophysicist, inspiration was never in short supply, but one has to take care that if students aspire, they have the facility and are empowered to follow their new dream rather than be disappointed. In short, we need to reach out and engage but then we need to follow through with the academic support to develop the hard skills that they will need to reach their goals. I will discuss some examples of bringing outreach and empowerment together in widening participation and research.

    The history of the Department can be traced back to the generous donation of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths that resulted in the opening of a laboratory dedicated to “the study of metallurgy” on 5th October 1920.

    To celebrate the 100th anniversary, we plan to hold a range of events throughout the coming year that will look back at the history of the department as well as to the future.  

    Our first hour-long virtual event will be held on 28th October 2020 at 2 p.m. GMT, and will be hosted by Professor Ruth Cameron and Professor Lindsay Greer.  

    They will be joined by academics who will provide highlights of past and present research in the Department and perspectives on the future of materials research, including:

    • Professor Sir Harry Bhadeshia, Tata Steel Professor of Metallurgy 
    • Professor Sir Anthony Cheetham, Goldsmiths Professor (2008 to 2017)
    • Professor Manish Chhowalla, Goldsmiths Professor (2018 to present)
    • Dr Rachel Evans, Reader in Materials Chemistry
    • Dr Louise Hirst, University Lecturer (joint appointment with Physics)
    • Professor Sir Colin Humphreys, Goldsmiths Professor (1980 to 2007)
    • Dr Bartomeu Monserrat, University Lecturer and Gianna Angelopoulos Lecturer in Computational  Materials Science
