Fellow, Queen's Institute for Energy and Environmental Policy, School of Policy Studies, Queen's University, Ontario
I have an undergraduate degree in history from the University of Western Ontario and a Masters of Journalism degree from the University of Western Ontario. I am currently a fellow at Queen's Institute for Energy and Environmental Policy in the School of Policy Studies at Queen's University. I have held that position since 2011.
I have been awarded three year-long fellowships: the Southam Fellowship at Massey College at the University of Toronto in 1986-87;the Knight Science Journalism Fellowship at MIT and Harvard in 1996-1997, and the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy in 2006. This award is a collaborative project of the Atkinson Foundation, the Honderich Family and Toronto Star. The focus of my fellowship was a series of articles on how climate change is reshaping the Arctic.
Since 2009, I have been a contributing writer for Yale Environment 360, an international online journal offering opinion, analysis, reporting, and debate on global environmental issues by scientists, journalists, environmentalists, academics, policy makers, and business people. Yale 360 is published by Yale's School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. To view my articles, go to: http://e360.yale.edu/authors/ed-struzik

I was also on one of the selection committees for the International Polar Year conference that was held in Montreal in 2012. The IPY From Knowledge to Action Conference was one of the largest and most important scientific conferences for polar science and climate change, impacts and adaptation. Keynote presentations, thought-provoking panel discussions and workshops involved hundreds of scientists from around the world.
My long list of awards includes the U.S.-based Grantham Prize for environmental writing, the Michener Deacon Fellowship in Public Policy and the Sir Sandford Fleming Medal, which goes to one person each year who has made an outstanding contribution to the understanding of science in Canada.
My articles on the Arctic have appeared in journals such as Foreign Policy Review, Arctic, Conservation Biology, The World Policy Institute’s Arctic-in-Context and Conservation Biology, to name just a few
Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Edge Hill University
If you think you or someone you know suffers from prosopagnosia/faceblindness (i.e., regular difficulties when recognising faces they should), then please get in touch with me if you would like to be tested for the condition at [email protected]
I’m a psychologist who is interested in vision in those with intact face recognition skills, neuropsychological (i.e., brain damage) and neurodevelopmental (i.e., lifelong problems in certain aspects of cognition) groups. A significant proportion of this work has focused on individuals who suffer from developmental prosopagnosia, a lifelong condition characterised by severe difficulties recognising facial identity. Unfortunately, most of the people who believe they have prosopagnosia will not receive a diagnosis using current approaches to testing. I hope to remedy this through my latest research (Burns et al., 2022). I also do work with aphantasia (people who can't visualise imagery in their mind) and developmental co-ordination disorder (people who have trouble with movement).
I am also interested in how we perceive a face when it is viewed with other faces nearby. This can often lead to a phenomenon called a cheerleader or friend effect, where the presence of others can make us appear more attractive or trustworthy. My recent paper (Burns et al., 2021, Cognition) drew many of these effects together in a framework that will help authors understand the myriad of influences on such phenomena.
Please get in touch with me at [email protected] if you have any questions about my work, or would like to study for a fully funded PhD (open to candidates worldwide). PhD applications are often open near closing dates in January or summer.

Senior Lecturer In Computational Petrology, The University of Melbourne
I gained my PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2011, after which I held post-doctoral research positions at the University of Mainz, the University of Bristol and ETH Zurich. I joined the University of Melbourne in January 2019 as a Senior Lecturer in Computational Petrology.
I model the thermodynamic properties of minerals and melts, and use this modelling to investigate a variety of Earth processes. The models that I make are based on information taken from thousands of experiments on geological materials, as well as computer simulations and observations of rocks in the field. As such, the models serve to summarise our knowledge of the properties of these materials, subject to some interpretation. My primary interest is in improving the process of developing the models - incorporating more information in more meaningful ways, so as to mimic natural materials more accurately and in a wider range of geological contexts. Much of my work builds on the Holland & Powell internally-consistent dataset, and the families of activity-composition relations developed by Roger Powell, Tim Holland, myself and other co-workers. These models are often associated with Roger Powell's program, Thermocalc. I am involved with several projects that apply the thermodynamic models to geological problems. Recent applications include integrated geodynamic and thermodynamic modelling of magma storage and ascent, multiple-reaction thermobarometry for cumulate rocks, and thermodynamic constraints on the formation of the Earth's crust.
Senior Lecturer in Literature, University of Liverpool
I joined the Institute of Irish Studies in 2019. Before moving to the University of Liverpool, I completed postgraduate studies in literature at New York University as a Fulbright scholar and at the University of Cambridge with the support of the AHRC. After finishing my PhD in 2015, I worked as a stipendiary and departmental lecturer at the University of Oxford.
My research interests cover the period since 1800 and fall into two categories: theatre & performance history and Irish literature & culture. I published a book on the circus in Irish literature and culture, All on Show, with Cork University Press last year. I am now working on my second monograph, which explores how English comic opera became a colonial export in the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. At the same time, I am working on an adaptation for live performance of Virginia Woolf's final novel Between the Acts and, with Dr Ataa Alsalloum of Liverpool's School of Architecture, an edited collection exploring aspects of intangible cultural heritage among migrant communities in the UK.
I teach on a wide range of both Irish studies and English modules, and convene modules on writing for radio, migrant writing, and twentieth-century and contemporary Irish writing. Like my research, my teaching tends to be interdisciplinary, combining my interests in literary criticism, theatre and performance studies, and history, and I encourage students to develop their own practical skills through creative critical assessment.
I am always on the look out for new ways to share my research with diverse audiences, both within and beyond the university. In 2008, I founded the production company Sidelong Glance: its mission is to turn academic research into widely accessible theatre, performance and documentary film. Sidelong Glance produced the short film series Whose History? for the Institute of Irish Studies at Liverpool in 2021; another of the company's productions, Wild Laughter, is a set text on undergraduate drama modules in English. In 2017, I was named an AHRC/BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinker. Since then, I have written, presented and appeared on a number of BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4 programmes. I have also written for various newspapers, magazines and blogs, including Vogue, the Irish Times and HuffPost UK.
Within Liverpool's School of Histories, Languages and Cultures, I am the Deputy Academic Lead for Admissions and Widening Participation.
Lecturer in Conservation and Forestry, Bangor University
I am a conservation scientist, working across disciplines to understand the difficult trade-offs we negotiate in biodiversity and environmental conservation, with the aim of finding solutions that offer benefits for people, biodiversity and the wider environment.
I have led ecological field surveys to assess evidence trade-offs and win-wins for biodiversity, livelihoods and carbon in smallholder plantation landscapes in Southeast Asia, but also use a variety of economic and spatial modelling approaches to understand how land use change affects biodiversity, people and climate at larger scales.
