This workshop will take place at the Advanced Engineering Building, University of Brighton Cockcroft Building, Moulsecoomb, Brighton BN2 4GJ.

Penny Atkins is part of the Advanced Engineering Centre and has a keen interest in future sustainable fuels and societal needs in the transport sector, coupled with research into low emissions, efficient combustion systems. Recent projects include work to develop near zero emissions hydrogen engines, investigation of the impact of hydrogen injection into the gas grid on heavy duty vehicles with Cadent Gas (, and work with the Energy Systems Catapult and the Advanced Propulsion Centre examining energy systems and cost of ownership modelling of heavy duty transport.

Rachael Champion is an artist and her artworks explore the physical, material, and historical relationships between ecology, industry, and the built environment. Her works are typically large in scale and consist of living organisms and ubiquitous building materials. Coalescing at an intersection between biology, geology, and architecture, Champion’s work addresses the corporeality of the materials we extract, transform, and consume and how these actions affect the physical characteristics of landscapes, ecosystems, and the built environment. Rachael Champion (b. 1982, Long Island, New York, USA) graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art from the Royal Academy Schools in 2010.  Champion lives and works in Thanet, UK.
