Congratulations to Professor Martin Booth on his appointment as the new Chair of the Electrical Engineering. A Fellow at St Hugh's College, Martin has also held a lectureship with Lincoln College since 2008.

Professor David Hills, Embling Fellow and Tutor in Engineering Science, said, “Martin has been a committed tutor for us. It has been a real pleasure to work alongside him and we wish him all the very best for the next phase of his career. His promotion to a statutory chair is fully deserved and he is very much to be congratulated on being able to split his time between doing original work of the highest order, and tutoring undergraduates. We hold research and the education of undergraduates as things of equal value, and Martin has been exemplary in holding and demonstrating those ideals."

Martin is an alumnus of the Engineering Science department, having read for his M.Eng. degree at Hertford College and then his doctorate (D.Phil.) at Jesus College. He was elected to a Junior Research Fellowship at Christ Church in 2001 and in 2003 was appointed a Royal Academy of Engineering/EPSRC Research Fellow. In 2007 he was awarded an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship and was elected to a Hugh Price Fellowship at Jesus College. He became Professor of Engineering Science and Senior Research Fellow at Jesus College in 2014, and is currently Deputy Head of the Engineering Science Department and Chair of Faculty. His current projects include adaptive optics for microscopy, biomedical microscopy, superresolution microscopy, ophthalmic imaging, adaptive laser fabrication, dynamic parallel laser machining and diamond photonics.
