Alan Turing Institute Fellows

The Alan Turing Institute (known as the Turing) was created in 2015 as the national Institute for Data Science and AI.  The University of Exeter is one of 13 partner Universities that the Turing has.  Over 400 researchers collaborate at the Turing, including 147 Turing Fellows from across the 13 partner Universities. Exeter formally joined the Turing network in April 2018. In October 2018 22 Exeter researchers were awarded prestigious Turing Fellowships, and in February 2019 a further three Exeter researchers were awarded Fellowships; taking Exeter's total number up to 25.

Turing Fellows are established scholars with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence, or a related field. They contribute to new ideas, drive collaborative projects, secure external funding and provide research expertise which is actively connected with the Institute and its network of universities and industry partners.
