Professor Niki Trigoni elected as a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering
At its AGM on 20 September 2022 the Royal Academy of Engineering elected Kellogg Fellow, Professor Niki Trigoni as a Fellow. She is one of 72 leading figures in the field of engineering and technology newly appointed to the Fellowship. The new Fellows have all made exceptional contributions to their own sector, pioneering new innovations, leading progress in business or academia, providing high level advice to government, or promoting wider understanding of engineering and technology.
Niki told us:
I am truly honoured to be invited to join such a distinguished group of innovators, entrepreneurs and academics in engineering and technology. I am very excited about the recent breakthroughs being made by the Cyber Physical Systems group at the University in localisation, mapping and semantic scene understanding particularly in emergency scenarios, as well as Navenio’s recent impact in terms of transforming work efficiency in healthcare. The Royal Academy of Engineering is an amazing community, opening up new opportunities for partnerships, policy and support for our engineering work. Through our research and translation activities, we very much look forward to contributing to its mission to help build a sustainable society and an inclusive economy that works for everyone.
The new Fellows will be formally admitted to the Academy at a special ceremony in London on 8 November, when each Fellow will sign the roll book.
Sir Jim McDonald FREng FRSE, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, said: ‘I am delighted to welcome such an array of enormously talented people to the Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering. From industry and enterprise to education and government – both national and international – these are some of our most pioneering and distinguished engineers and technologists.’
