AMD adds Chief Scientific Officer to Management Team
Dr Izabela Jurewicz joins the AMD management team following her recent UKRI Future Leadership Fellowship award.
Formerly a lecturer in Soft Matter Physics at the University of Surrey and leader of the IRIS Group (Interdisciplinary Research on Interface Structures), Dr Jurewicz is taking on the role of Chief Scientific Officer, based at AMD’s Guildford Main Office on the Surrey Research Park. She will also retain an academic link with the nearby University of Surrey and will continue to work closely with the research teams within both the Surrey and Sussex laboratories in collaboration with Professor Alan Dalton.
CEO, John Lee said "Although we have been working with Izabela and her team at the University of Surrey for over two years, her transition into a full-time position with AMD under the tremendous support of the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship Fund is a transformative event for the company and I believe she will be a huge boost to our R&D efforts, particularly in the more advanced engineering and prototyping aspects that are so important when developing R&D emanating from the University laboratories.”
