Anja Schmidt

Academic Research Fellow in Volcanic Impacts and Hazards, University of Leeds

I am an Academic Research Fellow in the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science since February 2013. I combine expertise in atmospheric science and volcanology to advance the current understanding of volcanic impacts and hazards. In particular, I investigate the impact of volcanism on atmospheric chemistry, climate, air quality, human health, ecosystems and aviation using a wide range of atmospheric models and volcanological datasets. I also apply my atmospheric chemistry and aerosol modelling skills to non-volcanic topics in atmospheric and climate sciences.

Ann Light

I am a qualitative researcher, interested in how people relate to each other in contemporary society and the impact of present/future design choices. A fascination with digital mediation led me to make studies of websites and online discussion as early as 1995, and I now focus on mobile and ubiquitous contexts of use. An important element of my work has been looking at design globally - with projects in Ghana, India, Chile and Uganda, workshops on six continents, and a role advising the European Union on the future of the Internet.

I was a member of the Culture, Communication and Computing Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam University for several years, working closely with the four councils of South Yorkshire to research digital engagement strategies, and also holding an appointment in Drama at Queen Mary, University of London, where I devised methodology for communities to participate in designing future digital tools. More recently I held a post at Northumbria's Design School. I have been multiply funded under the interdisciplinary RCUK calls of Designing for the 21st Century and Connected Communities. In my research, I work extensively with arts organisations, grass-roots community groups, older people and marginalised communities, focusing on meaning-making, identity, inclusion and experience of technology.

I bring broad experience of interaction design practices including long-term consultancy in design companies (Flow Interactive http://www.flow-interactive.com, Fjord www.fjordnet.com), as well as projects with the likes of The Guardian, the BBC and the transport arm of Amey Technology.

I publish on social innovation, human-computer interaction and cross-cultural methodology, having helped design and evaluate websites, mobile phones, social networks and technologies of augmented reality, automatic identity capture (AIDC), ubiquitous computing and the Internet of Things.

Anna Childs

I am Deputy Director (Academic) of the International Development Office at the OU, with oversight across all our programmes which deal with teacher training, child rights, higher education capacity building and more. Issues like trafficking are part of a broader theory of change around education – for example teacher training is an essential element in supporting children to be aware of their own rights. I have been on the board of a school in Kathmandu for about 15 years, and visit Nepal about twice a year on average.

I have edited 3 books, written 12 chapters and delivered a large number of papers, conference presentations etc. My early research area (most of which is published under Anna Peachey) was in online presence and student community, which transitioned into innovation in education for development. My last keynote was at a conference on Higher Education for Development in Ethiopia last summer, and I will soon deliver a keynote at Nepal's National Conference on Science and Technology, an event that takes place every 4 years and is inaugurated by the Prime Minister of Nepal. The theme for 2016 is Science, Technology and Innovation for Nepal’s Graduation to Developing Country Status.

I support the Director of International Development at The Open University in the strategic direction of project activity. Drawing on over fifteen years of experience in project design, management and evaluation, I also provide support for Project Academic Directors.

Along with delivering academic support for the International Development Office’s (IDO) current projects and for the development of new IDO projects, I guide and advise academics in the Faculties when developing bids and proposals for international development projects and research activity.

Having won The Open University Teaching Award for my work with distance learning in 2005, one of my projects was also shortlisted for The Times Education Award for Outstanding Innovation in ICT in 2008. I have been an expert speaker at over 25 global and UK conferences.

Anthony Pereira

Anthony Pereira graduated from the University of Sussex in 1982 with a BA in Politics and then in 1986 obtained an MA in Government from Harvard University.

His PhD dissertation at Harvard, defended in 1991, involved research on rural labour organisations in Northeast Brazil under two different periods, the late 1950s and early 1960s, and the late 1970s and 1980s. Rural labour organisations played an important role in the politics of both periods, and the dissertation drew on newspaper archives, qualitative interviews, government documents, and a survey of trade union leaders to analyse the changing nature and impact of that role.

After completing his PhD, Pereira taught at the Graduate Faculty of the New School for Social Research in New York City. In 1995, he was a visiting professor at Harvard University, and in 1997-9, a visiting professor at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in Boston.

In 1999 he moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, to take a position in the Department of Political Science at Tulane University. During this time he finished his second major research project, a comparative study of the Brazilian military regime’s legal treatment of opponents and dissidents. This study, drawing on court records and interviews, compared the Brazilian military regime (1964-85) to the military regimes in Argentina (1976-83) and Chile (1973-90).

Pereira’s current work concerns citizenship, human rights, public security, and state coercion in Brazil. This includes a study of the performance of a relatively new human rights institution, the police ombudsman, in two different states in Brazil, as well as an analysis of some recent efforts to reform the police. Pereira has been a member of the Executive Committee of the Brazilian Studies Association (BRASA) and is an occasional commentator for BBC Brasil.

Arend Hintze

At the Hintzelab we are researching the evolution of natural and artificial intelligence. We use computational modeling to understand what environments and evolutionary pressures give rise to intelligence, and how cognitive mechanisms evolved. At the same time we want to bring about Artificial Intelligence by the means of evolution. The idea is that conventional approaches in software design will ultimately be limited to our understanding of the human brain, and we simply don’t want to wait until cognitive- and neuro-science figured “it” out, but instead use the one process that already made cognitive entities: evolution!

Arin Keeble

Arin Keeble's research focuses on the way contemporary literature and culture represents and responds to terrorism, crisis and disaster. Under this umbrella he is working in three distinct areas: the '9/11 novel', narratives of Hurricane Katrina and contemporary American television (particularly David Simon and TV audiences in the UK). He currently has significant projects underway in each of these areas.

The '9/11 Novel' – Dr Keeble's work in this area has sought to move beyond a polarised critical paradigm that has pitted domestic narratives of trauma in opposition to more outwardly facing political narratives. This was the subject of Dr Keeble's doctoral research, and he has published three peer reviewed articles in Modern Language Review, Reconstruction and European Journal of American Culture in this area. Additionally, his monograph, The 9/11 Novel: Trauma, Politics and Identity was published by McFarland in 2014. His most current work in this area is an article on Thomas Pynchon's Bleeding Edge (2013) entitled 'Before and After in Bleeding Edge', which is under review.

Narratives of Hurricane Katrina – Dr Keeble's work on Katrina focusses on the ways in which literary, cinematic and televisual narratives of Katrina respond not just to the Katrina crisis, but also to the politics of the War on Terror, and to the perceived apolitical nature of many early narratives of 9/11. Dr Keeble's first publication in this area was 'The Aggregation of Politics in Dave Eggers Zeitoun' which appeared in the peer reviewed Journal of Comparative American Studies (13.3). Dr Keeble has also guest edited a special issue of European Journal of American Cultures which comes out later this year, and includes his article on David Simon's television series Treme (2009-2013) 'Won't Bow, Don't Know How: Treme, and New Orleans Exceptionalism'. Additionally Dr Keeble is working on a new monograph on Katrina narratives which will appear in 2017.

American Television – Dr Keeble's first published work in this area was a co-edited collection of essays with Dr Ivan Stacy (Hong Kong Baptist University) on David Simon's The Wire (2002-2008) which appeared in 2015, The Wire and America's Dark Corners: Critical Essays. Dr Stacy and Dr Keeble have continued to collaborate on the subject of David Simon's television; their co-guest edited special issue of European Journal of American Cultures features eight new essays on Simon. Dr Keeble's interest in US television extends to the way it is received by UK audiences and he is developing an audience studies partnership project with a colleague at Durham University and two major UK cultural cinemas.

Arun Vishwanath

Dr. Vishwanath studies the “people problem” of cyber security.

His research focuses on improving individual, organizational, and national resilience to cyber attacks by focusing on the weakest links in cyber security—all of us Internet users.

His particular interest is in understanding why organizational insiders willingly exfiltrate sensitive organizational data; why people become unintentional insiders by falling prey to social engineering attacks that come-in through email and social media; and on ways we can harness this understanding to secure cyber space. He also examines how various groups–-criminal syndicates, terrorist networks, hacktivists–-utilize cyber space to commit crime, spread mis-information, recruit operatives, and radicalize others.

Dr. Vishwanath’s research on improving cyber resilience against online social engineering has been funded by the National Science Foundation. He has written and published over two-dozen articles on technology users and cyber security issues and my research has been presented to principals at national security and law enforcement agencies around the world. His research has also been featured on CNN, USA Today, Bloomberg Business Week, Consumer Reports and hundreds of other national and international news outlets.

Ashish Sharma

Post-doctoral researcher, University of Notre Dame

I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Environmental Change Initiative, University of Notre Dame working with Dr. Joe Fernando and Dr. Alan Hamlet. I received my Ph.D in regional climate modeling from Arizona State University in 2012 working with Dr. Huei-Ping Huang.

My research interests lie in atmospheric sciences and land/ocean-atmosphere interactions at a range of spatial scales (regional to local) that are relevant to the management of human and natural systems. My aim is to create a new generation of high-resolution climate models capable of resolving relatively small-scale processes and impacts in a sufficiently physically based way that they can be used for future climate predictions with increased confidence. I perform targeted dynamical downscaling experiments with the overarching goal of creating "bridges" between global, regional and micro-scale modeling.

Research Interests:

Regional climate modeling: Land/ocean/lake-atmosphere interactions, lake breeze, UHI effect, land data assimilation, hydrometeorological extremes

Microscale modeling: Climate modeling at hyper-local scales (~m scales)

Climate adaptation and mitigation: Interactions between urban ecology and urban heat island in a changing climate
