Virtual Coffee Break Series on Diversity and Inclusion, featuring Janice Barton

March 15, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

Our upcoming D&I Coffee Break session features Janice Barton, Professor of Experimental Mechanics and Director of the Industrial Doctorate Centre in Composites Manufacture at the University of Bristol.

Join us for a thought-provoking session “Inclusivity, Imposter syndrome and I,” which will focus on female and non-binary people in engineering and drawing on Janice’s lived experience creating an inclusive environment.



Janice Dulieu-Barton is a Professor of Experimental Mechanics in the Bristol Composites Institute at the University of Bristol, where she is the Director of the Industrial Doctorate Centre in Composites Manufacture. Janice received her PhD in 1993 from Manchester University researching the topic now known as ‘thermoelastic stress analysis.’ She has published around 450 papers with more than 140 in archival journals.

Janice’s expertise is in imaging for data rich material characterisations and structural integrity assessments, with a focus on lightweight structural design particularly composite structures. She has won numerous grants that have allowed her to develop novel approaches in experimental mechanics, most recently focusing on integration of flexible photonics into composite structures with colleagues at the University of Southampton.

She is the director of the Industrial Doctorate Centre on Composites Manufacture, which focuses on doctoral research that takes place in Industry. Janice champions ‘doctoral mobility’ to make opportunities available to underrepresented groups to study to PhD level achieve their potential.
