The Royal Academy of Engineering Colin Campbell Mitchell Award

The Royal Academy of Engineering is to present this year’s Colin Campbell Mitchell Award to three Oxford-based researchers who have developed an innovative, non-contact health monitoring technology capable of observing a patient’s vital signs via a standard digital video camera. The team, who work for Oxehealth, a company spun out from Professor Tarassenko’s lab in the Department’s Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME), will be presented with the prize at the Academy’s Research Forum on 4 September. Before joining Oxehealth, two of the three award winners, Oliver Gibson and Nic Dunkley, were DPhil students in the IBME.

The storm that struck the Mulberry Harbours

Professor Thomas Adcock, Associate Professor in the Department, was recenlty interviewed for the University of Oxford's Science Blog about his newly published research: ‘the waves at the Mulberry Harbours.’ This focuses on understanding the ocean environment and how this interacts with infrastructure. Professor Adcock has a passionate interest in engineering history, particularly the Mulberry Harbours, which were used during the Second World War as part of Operation Overlord (the invasion of Normandy). His Grandfather was one of the engineers who worked on their design and construction.
