Professor Archie Clements
Deputy Vice-Chancellor - Research and Innovation
Office of Vice Chancellor
I joined University of Plymouth in September 2022 as the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Innovation. As DVC R&I, I am a member of the University Executive Group, and am responsible for leading the development and implementation of the University’s research strategy. I chair the University Research and Innovation Committee, the University Research Ethics and Integrity Committee and the Strategic Institutes Steering Group. I have a concurrent appointment as Professor of Global Health in the Peninsula Medical School. Prior to joining University of Plymouth, I was Pro Vice-Chancellor leading the Faculty of Health Sciences at Curtin University in Western Australia and Director of the Research School of Population Health at the Australian National University. I am an infectious disease epidemiologist and have studied the spatial epidemiology of parasitic, bacterial and viral diseases, predominantly in tropical regions of the world. I have also worked on community-based intervention studies exploring the role of multi-component, integrated strategies for sustainable infectious disease control. As of September 2022 I have co-authored approximately 300 peer-reviewed publications and been a chief investigator on competitively awarded research grants valued at over £18M.
