Personal profile

Personal Statement

Stuart Reid leads a multidisciplinary team at the University of Strathclyde, is a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, and is co-chair of the RSE Young Academy of Scotland.  He has spent the last 15 years developing technology for gravitational wave detectors, and is co-inventor of "nanokicking", where precise nanoscale vibrations are used to control the behaviour (and fate) of adult stem cells which can be used to grow bone in the lab from a patient's own cells. His team have also developed novel ECR ion beam deposition technology, alongside developing new crystalline mirror technologies in partnership with Gas Sensing Solution Ltd, which are both relevant for future gravitational wave detectors in addition to a wide array of precision optical/optoelectronic applications.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
