Dr. Mark Elshaw
Dr. Mark Elshaw has been a Researcher for 15 years in three different research groups: The Hybrid Intelligent Systems Group (University of Sunderland), the Speech and Hearing Group (Sheffield University) and Intelligent Computation Group (Coventry University). He has worked on and been part of the successful management team for UK and EU funded projects, and disseminated research findings via 30+ peer reviews publications, outreach events and numerous project reports. He has also edited 3 computational neuroscience books, organised conferences and seminars, helped in the creation of successful funding proposals, and is reviewer for various conferences and journals. He was part of the team who won the British Computer Society intelligent machine prize for a bio-inspired robot.
