Professor Ifan Stephens inspires at his inaugural lecture

Professor Ifan Stephens (CPLAS Imperial Lead) delivered his inaugural lecture at Imperial College London last week.

Ifan took the audience on an inspiring journey, from being an undergrad at Imperial to a challenging PhD journey, finding his feet in Denmark, having spin-out successes, and returning to Imperial as an academic.  In a world where people tend to only publicise their successes, it was a refreshing change to hear that things can and often do get better after challenging times.
