      Software Engineering in Academic and Commercial Research - Oxfordshire Branch

      This talk will discuss the new professional discipline of Research Software Engineer and how it is helping bridge the gap. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SPEAKERS Alys Brett, Head of Software Engineering, UK Atomic Energy Authority -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- AGENDA19:30 - Event starts21:00 - Event ends -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SYNOPSISSoftware is fundamental to almost all modern research, although historically much of the development has been done by researchers in a somewhat ‘amateur’ way. Going forward this must change to maintain the credibility of the research. Researchers need to either become professional software engineers or work in close collaboration with knowledgeable software developers and get due recognition for the important role they play. This talk will discuss the new professional discipline of Research Software Engineer and how it is helping bridge the gap. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SPEAKER BIOGRAPHIESAlys BrettAlys Brett is head of the Software Engineering Group at the UK Atomic Energy Authority in Culham – a government-backed lab with a mission to deliver commercial fusion power.

She became joint-chair of the UK RSE Association in 2016 and was the founding chair of the Society of Research Software Engineering – a professional organisation for RSEs established in 2019.
