Professor Rebecca Seviour is the head of the Accelerator Reserach Group at the University of Huddersfield and a non-executive director at Alceli ltd. Prior to joining Huddersfield in 2013 she was the Lise Meitner Professor at Lund University, Sweden, with a joint position at the European Spallation Source. Since her first faculty appointment (2006) she has received over £1.6M Principe Investigator and joint awarded £27.8M in Co-Investigator grants. In 2007 Prof Seviour was awarded a Challenging Engineering award (EP/E007635/1, £0.9M) on photonics and metamaterials. Outputs from this project were nominated for the METAMORPHOSE industrial application award in 2009, and receiving support from the USAF, for which funding has recently been extended in the area of transformative artificial Electromagnetic media.

Prof Seviour is currently active in the EPSRC college, STFC Industrial Partnership panel, and is an elected member of the Executive Committee in the NPSS of the IEEE. Previously she has been a member of the STFC PPGP panel, STFC Gravitational waves panel, and has acted on as a member on DoE review panels.
