Professor Jacqueline Cole

Professor Jacqueline Cole holds the Royal Academy of Engineering Research Professorship in Materials Physics at the University of Cambridge, where she is Head of Molecular Engineering. She concurrently holds the BASF / Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair in Data-driven Molecular Engineering of Functional Materials. This is partly funded by the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source at Harwell Campus to whom she is 50% seconded from the Department of Physics (Cavendish Laboratory) at Cambridge. Her research group is based at both Cambridge and Research Complex.

She combines artificial intelligence with data science, computational methods and experimental research to afford a 'design-to-device' pipeline for data-driven materials discovery. Her research is highly interdisciplinary. Accordingly, she holds two PhDs: one in Physics from the University of Cambridge and one in Chemistry from the University of Durham.
