Assistant Director, Applied History Project and Intelligence Project, Harvard Kennedy School
Calder Walton is Assistant Director of the Belfer Center's Applied History Project and Intelligence Project. His research is broadly concerned with intelligence, history, grand strategy, and international relations. His research has a particular focus on policy-relevant historical lessons for governments and intelligence communities today.
Calder is finishing a book, Spies. The Hundred Year Intelligence War between East and West, to be published by Simon & Schuster and Little Brown in 2023. His research, and commentary, about national security issues frequently appear in major news and broadcast outlets on both sides of the Atlantic.
Calder is also general editor of the multi-volume Cambridge History of Espionage and Intelligence to be published by Cambridge University Press. Over three volumes, with ninety chapters by leading scholars, this project will be a landmark study of intelligence, exploring its use and abuse in statecraft and warfare from the ancient world to the present day.
Calder's research builds on his first (award-winning) book, Empire of Secrets. British Intelligence, the Cold War and the Twilight of Empire (Harper-Press 2013). While pursuing a Ph.D. in History at Trinity College, Cambridge, England, and then a Junior Research Fellowship also at Cambridge University, Calder was a lead researcher on Professor Christopher Andrew's unprecedented official history of the British Security Service (MI5), Defend the Realm (2009). This research position gave Calder, for six years, privileged access to the archives of MI5, the world's longest-running security intelligence agency. As well as his research on intelligence history, Calder is also an English-qualified Barrister (attorney). He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with his wife and young son, who each day teaches him more about skulduggery than anything else.

Dr Cameron Webb is a Clinical Lecturer with the University of Sydney and Principal Hospital Scientist with the Department of Medical Entomology at Pathology West - ICPMR Westmead (NSW Health Pathology & Westmead Hospital). Cameron's primary focus is understanding the role of environmental management and urban development in reducing the risks of mosquito-borne disease caused by Murray Valley encephalitis virus, Ross River virus and Barmah Forest virus. However, he has also been called on to provide expert advice on a range of medically important arthropods, such as ticks, mites, biting midges, bed bugs and flies, to local, state and federal government agencies.
Key to his research is an understanding of the ecological role of mosquitoes and how wetland conservation, construction and rehabilitation projects may influence regional mosquito-borne disease risk together with changes in the local environment resulting from climate change, potential introductions of exotic mosquito species and personal protection strategies (e.g. insect repellents).
In his position with the University of Sydney, Cameron regularly provides lectures in a range of undergraduate and post graduate courses and has supervised a number of research students including collaborative projects with the University of Western Sydney, the Australian Catholic University and the University of South Australia.
Cameron Jones is a PhD Student in Cognitive Science at UC San Diego. His work focuses on how human beings use their embodied experience with the world to understand language and whether artificial models could understand language in a human-like way. He runs experiments that compare the way in which humans and language models respond to sentences that are theorised to require embodied experience to understand: for example, sentences about physical events, affordances, or social interactions. To the extent that human responses can't be predicted by text-only language models, these experiments suggests that human comprehenders are drawing on experience that goes beyond language alone.
