Kelly Fincham

Lecturer in Journalism and Communications, University of Galway
I’m the programme director for the Global Media and Communication MA at National University Ireland Galway and I also teach journalism (social media) in the undergraduate and graduate programmes with a focus on social and digital journalism and media theory.

My research agenda is focused on the ways in which social media have impacted journalism and I am particularly interested in the ways that bad-faith actors are weaponising journalism norms in a social and digital media context. I draw from Andrew Chadwick’s hybrid media theory in understanding how social media has created new ways that information can flow in a hybrid media environment.

Kelsey Pukelis

Ph.D. Student in Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School
I am a Ph.D. student in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. I am an empirical public economist, with secondary fields in labor and behavioral economics. I am particularly interested in the relationship between the social safety net and work. My current research focuses on the Supplemental Nutrition Assitance Program (SNAP): the largest nutrition assistance program in the U.S. I have studied the impact of work requirements on employment and earnings, and I am currently studying the effects of drastic administrative changes to SNAP since the COVID-19 pandemic and the nature of stigma associated with the program. I primarily apply quasi-experimental methods to publicly available and administrative data. More broadly, I am also interested in applied econometric methods and the effect of social norms and pressures on individual behavior. By acquiring deep contextual knowledge and applying insights from other social sciences into economics, my goal is to deepen our understanding of the consequences of policy design choices in part by incorporating the perspective of individuals who are affected by them.

I am a James M. and Cathleen D. Stone PhD Scholar in Inequality and Wealth Concentration in Harvard University's Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality & Social Policy and an awardee of the National Science Foundation's Graduate Research Fellowship Program. During the summer of 2020, I worked as a Research Intern at Microsoft Research New England. Prior to graduate school, I was a Research Specialist Intermediate at the University of Virginia's Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy.

Kelvin Anggara

Group leader in Single molecule imaging, Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research
I have worked for ~10 years in the field of single molecule imaging. Using a tool called 'Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy', I was able to study chemical reactions on surfaces one-molecule-at-a-time. I recently extended the use of such microscope to determine structures of carbohydrate-decorated proteins and lipids - also known as glycoconjugate - as they are key molecules in many biological functions - and dysfunctions.

I started my PhD in 2013 at the University of Toronto under Prof. John C. Polanyi (Nobel Laureate in Chemistry in 1986). Graduated in 2018, I joined Prof. Klaus Kern at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Germany as Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow. Since 2023, I have started my own research group funded by the European Research Council.

Kenna Lehmann

Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
I study the interdependencies and connections among sociality, communication, and cooperation. Modeling suggests that communication and cooperation can be stabilized by social interactions. At the same time, we know communication reduces the potential costs of intergroup competition and cooperation is a way to realize the benefits of sociality. Further, a number of evolutionary hypotheses predict that complexity in one of these three leads to or requires complexity in another. My work uses observations of and experiments with wild and captive animals to tease apart the factors governing how these complex behaviors evolve and interact.

As a PoE Fellow, I am working with Dr. Eileen Hebets to study the cooperative hunting behavior of a social pseudoscorpion (Paratemnoides nidificator) and the neural development and intelligence of the amblypygid (Phrynus marginemaculatus). Paratemnoides nidificator lives in colonies, shares parental care, and hunts large insects. Their unique social structure allows us to ask questions about how social ties and communication signals affect their ability to cooperate to obtain food. From this, we can determine whether social bonds built up over time or signals emitted during hunting are more important for cooperation. Our work with P. marginemaculatus tests two popular hypotheses for the evolution of large brains in primates: environmental complexity and social complexity.

Kenneth W Beagley

Professor of Immunology, Queensland University of Technology
Traditional vaccine approaches have been unsuccessful in preventing chlamydial infections. Prof. Beagley and colleagues are researching novel DNA vaccination and bioinformatics approaches to identify protective chlamydial antigens that are conserved across several chlamydial species. Using combinations of these antigens we can reduce both the duration and magnitude of infection and reduce infection-associated inflammation that is the cause of infertility in animal models of chlamydial infection. We are now working with collaborators in the US and a major vaccine company to develop a human Chlamydia vaccine. We have also used these antigens to develop the world’s first Chlamydia vaccine for the koala. This vaccine has been shown to protect young koalas in a wild population with a high incidence of chlamydial infection and disease and has increased reproductive success in this population. The vaccine is currently undergoing registration.

Neisseria gonorrhea is another human STI and is a disease of increasing concern due to antibiotic resistance. We have established a new mouse model of Neisseria infection in male mice and have shown that infection adversely affects sperm production similar to what we find with Chlamydia infection. We are currently using this model to further investigate the effects of Neisseria infection on male fertility and for development of vaccines to prevent infections.

Prof. Beagley is a past-president of the International Society for Mucosal Immunology and is a member of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology, the American Association of Immunologists, the Society for Reproductive Biology, the American Society for Reproductive Immunology, the International Society for Vaccines and the International Society for Immunology of Reproduction.
