Professor John Terry is the Director of the Centre for Systems Modelling and Quantitative Biomedicine (SMQB). He is Interdisciplinary Professorial Fellow: a post he holds jointly across Mathematics, Computer Science and the Institute for Metabolism and Systems Research. John’s research transcends traditional discipline boundaries speaking to mathematics, computer science, physics, biology, biomedical and clinical sciences. John has substantially contributed to approaching 70 pieces of original research and has a very strong track-record of research funding. John holds 1 patent with 2 pending, and is co-founder of Neuronostics (a start-up company established in 2018).
John sits on a number of national and international committees including the EPSRC peer-review college, the MRC non-clinical training and career development panel, the UKRI future leaders fellowship committee and the Epilepsy Research UK scientific advisory committee. John is also a passionate science communicator and co-wrote and codirected Beyond My Control: a unique piece of theatre that brings to life what it is like to have epilepsy, the mathematics behind understanding brain networks and how this can be used to better diagnose epilepsy.
