Prof Christopher JamesManaging Director
The Pod is the wacky brainchild of Christopher, he is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Warwick as we as founder and CEO of EMbody Biosignals Ltd. which is our first partner with the BME Pod. Christopher is passionate about promoting STEM and wants to infect as many people as possible with the enthusiasm for STEM and what it does for humanity.
Rey, a rescued Bodeguero from Ubeda in Spain, is an integral part of the team – he provides well received “feel good” vibes which makes what we do that much more enjoyable! Well, OK, so he’s not exactly part of the team but he does transmit positive vibes which are pretty useful these days 😀
Undergraduate StudentsThe Pod Crew
Each year a posse of engineering undergraduate students will work on the development of the BME Pod. Their job will be to design, develop and produce the various Pod systems – such as the Power Systems, the Information systems and the various bits of BME tech. They will also work on the curriculum design and will form the Pod crew to take the Pod where it is needed and to deliver STEM based exercises. The students will do this as part of their studies meaning that not only will they be imparting know how, but they will also be training and helping develop their skills as part of their degree.
A message from the MD
BME Pod is still under construction, we are still looking to find new partners to help us fund the Pod and to get it out there doing good. Please contact us if you want any more information or if you want to pledge your support – however small – we would be most grateful to hear from you.Christopher, BME Pod MD
