Personal profile

Research interests

Prof. Bond is currently the Dean of Engineering at the University of Bristol.  

As the chief executive officer, Prof Bond guides the Faculty towards academic excellence; promotes a culture of research, innovation and scholarship; and represents its students and staff at the university level and beyond.

As the chief academic officer of the Faculty, he oversees appointment of Heads of School, Departments and Research Groups, oversees accreditation, and leads new curricula and programme development efforts. 

As the financial and administrative manager for the Faculty, he guides and oversees its annual operating budget, and advocates for investments in new research, teaching and infrastructure initiatives. 

He is also charged with all aspects of the Faculty’s external engagement, and in providing strategic leadership and management in meeting the University’s mission.

His personal research interests are to develop, characterise and optimise a variety of innovative and ingenious approaches which provide functionality to fibre reinforced polymer composite materials and take them beyond their structural role. This includes bio-inspired and biomimetic approaches.

Functionalities such as self-healing, electromagnetic response, and shape change (morphing) within fibre reinforced composites are currently being developed, alongside research into creating novel hierarchical architectures and improving damage tolerance via innovative means.

He also has extensive teaching and PhD supervision experience.
