The Alan Turing Institute is the national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. Turing researchers are based in universities and centres of research excellence across the UK and undertake interdisciplinary research of relevance to real-world problems.
Ludwig Oxford’s Dr Benjamin Schuster-Böckler will be a Turing Fellow for 2021-2022, joining the Turing’s vibrant, interdisciplinary, and collaborative research community. Ben’s research focuses on the causes and consequences of DNA mutations in cancer using computational genomics methods. This work will increase the understanding of how cancers develop and may provide insights into strategies for cancer prevention.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome this new group of Fellows. This cohort is incredibly multidisciplinary and diverse. They will bring a rich range of expertise and ensure we continue to do world-leading, impactful research - Adrian Smith, Turing Institute Director and Chief Executive.
Turing Fellows are ‘mid-to-senior career’ scholars with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence, or a related field, whose research would be significantly enhanced through active involvement with the Turing network of universities and partners. The University of Oxford is one of the founding University partners and is eligible to nominate up to 35 fellows a year.
