As Head of Department, I am deeply aware of the importance of inclusivity in science. Our actions and initiatives aim to ensure that staff and students have the same opportunities to fulfil their academic potential, irrespective of gender, race, faith, sexuality or any other aspects of their background. I look forward to continuing to work together with my colleagues to fully realise this aim.
