Senior Lecturer, Geography and Sustainable Development, University of St Andrews
My academic career started with three degrees in quick succession - an MA in Geography at Oxford (1985), an MSc in Natural Resource Management at Edinburgh (1987) and then a NERC-funded PhD in Glaciology (1990), also at Edinburgh. Having worked in Greenland during my PhD, I then continued my research on the interaction between glaciers and climate change in Patagonia during a 3-year NERC Research Fellowship based in Edinburgh. In 1995 I moved to St Andrews as a Lecturer and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2003. In 2004 I was awarded the President's Medal of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. In 2006 I led the St Andrews bid which won the Times Higher Award for 'Outstanding Contribution to Sustainable Development'.
I have always had strong interests both in environmental management and in glaciology. For much of my career I have focused mainly on the latter, exploring the dynamics and climate sensitivity of calving glaciers in the arctic, in the southern hemisphere (Patagonia, New Zealand) and in Nepal. More recently my interests have moved more into environmental management and sustainable development, both in my research and my teaching. A second edition of my 2002 book Managing Scotland's Environment was published in 2009, and I am actively involved in researching the debates surrounding the development of renewable energy, especially the nature of public attitudes. This has led, inter alia, to a co-edited book investigating aspects of wind power (2012), and I have also co-edited a volume on sustainable upland land use (2013). Here in the university I teach not only on the Geography programme but have helped to launch the inter-disciplinary Sustainable Development degree. From 2004 to 2009 I served as a Senate Assessor on the University Court.
My research interests include: environmental management; land use policy and environmental policy analysis, with an emphasis on the Scottish context; evaluating policies for tackling invasive alien species; the renewable energy transition; socio-economic implications of Scottish land reform; wild land and the 'rewilding' movement.
Charlotte's research focuses on the impacts of parasites and disease on marine populations. Since beginning her studies in 2008, Charlotte has traveled extensively, working with collaborators in the USA and Canada, gaining valuable experience in a range of disease detection methods and learning more about marine management strategies. Her doctorate at the Department of Bioscience, Swansea University (UK) focused on determining the health status of commercially important European crustacean populations; susceptibility to disease, the effects of invasive species and how fisheries closure can impact the health of crustaceans. Her current position at the Reef Systems Unit in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, investigates the effects of crustacean disease on coral reef health. She is passionate about the integration of fishermen and marine scientists for the betterment of fisheries management and a sustainable future.

Senior Lecturer in Law, University of York
I've been awarded an ESRC 'Future Research Leader' grant, with which I'm PI on the EU Rights Project, www.eurightsproject.org.uk - working with EU migrants, Citizens Advice Services, and other advice agencies around the country, providing an advice and advocacy service while conducting an ethnography on the administrative and legal problems encountered. I have documented the effects of the recent welfare changes targeting EU migrants.
The project was described by reviewers as 'groundbreaking', 'tremendously innovative', 'strikingly original' and said 'the applicant’s background makes her possibly the only person of her generation in a position to credibly offer the opportunity to develop this methodology in this kind of context: access to civil justice, in supranational contexts’.
Having volunteered and worked in Citizens Advice Bureaux for over thirteen years, and specialised in EU legal research for eleven years, I have practical as well as academic expertise in UK welfare law, EU law, (particularly EU social law - welfare, free movement, citizenship and equal treatment), human rights law, equality and non-discrimination law (especially disability), the rights of carers, and child poverty.
I've been appointed an 'analytical expert' on the EU Commission's Free Movement and Social Security Coordination network, producing reports and giving litigation advice and suggestions to the Commission. I am also joint cases editor for the Journal of Social Security Law.
My work has been published in key international journals, such as the European Law Review, the Common Market Law Review, the Maastricht Journal of International and Comparative Law, and the Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law.
I've communicated about my research through various media, including the Today Programme on Radio 4, BBC Inside Out, and BBC Breakfast. I have given various public talks, including at the YorkTalks 2016, https://youtu.be/Iz-dY3g-ZAI and in an Open Course lecture series on Law, Government and the Public, 2015.
My PhD in Law (Liverpool) was funded by the AHRC, and focussed on free movement, equal treatment and EU citizenship; during this I took part in two research projects on retirement migration funded by the Spanish Ministry for Employment & Social Affairs and Age Concern. These looked at the access to welfare services for post-retirement EU migrants, particularly UK nationals abroad. My LLM (Leeds) research involved study of the attempts to produce an EU constitution. My work is inherently interdisciplinary; my first degree was a BA in Social & Political Sciences, (Cambridge).

His work also displays a strong interest in human rights and social justice.
I am a Senior Lecturer in Social Policy in the Department of Applied Social Science at Lancaster University. I am also a member of the Centre for Disability Research (CeDR). My research interests include social security, income maintenance and labour market policy and their implications for disabled people.
My main current research interests are concerned with analysing contemporary and historical changes in income maintenance and labour market policy. I am interested in the ways in which such policies are shaped by concerns with groups in the population that are deemed to be 'problematic', such as lone mothers and young people, and the ways in which income maintenance and labour market policies are held to be more important because of their macro-economic benefits, rather than their social benefits.
I am currently engaged in research at the National Archives which is focusing upon the introduction of Family Income Supplement in 1971 and how one of the guiding principles - that market wages should not be subsidised by the state - which had shaped social security policy making from the introduction of the Poor Law Amendment Act, was overcome by policy makers in the 1970s.
More directly related to criminology, I am interested in the press reporting of crime, particularly the reporting of sexual offences and the ways in which groups in the population (most notably black and working class men) are constructed as sex offenders.

Research Fellow in Faith and Peaceful Relations, Coventry University
Prior to joining the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University in 2015 Dr Chris Shannahan was Lecturer in Religion and Theology at the University of Manchester (2013-2015). His Doctorate (2008, University of Birmingham) developed the first critical analysis of urban theology in the UK and led to work as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Urban Theology and then a Teaching Fellow in Religion and Society at the University of Birmingham (2009-2012) where he developed a major ethnographic project working alongside unemployed young men on a large Birmingham housing estate.
His first monograph, 'Voices from the Borderland' (2010) was described as a ‘ground-breaking’ example of cross-cultural urban theology and is a set text at Universities and Theological Colleges in the UK, the USA and Australia. His second monograph, 'A Theology of Community Organizing' (2013) provided the first systematic theological analysis of broad-based community organising. His research also utilises Hip-Hop culture as a discourse of meaning, as seen in his 2012 partnership with the street artist Mohammed ‘aerosol’ Ali on his ‘Bromford Dreams – Graffiti Spiritualities’ action research project.
Chris Shannahan's research arises from more than 20 years grassroots experience as the head of Religious Education in a large East London Secondary school; a youth worker in the East End of London and Trenchtown, Jamaica; a Methodist Minister in inner-city London and Birmingham and a community organiser.

I am a Professor of Earth Sciences and Climate Change at the University of New South Wales where my team and I are focusing our efforts on using the past to better understand the causes and impacts of future environmental change. As part of this I set up and now direct the Earth's Past Future Project (www.earthspastfuture.com), an international, multidisciplinary programme dedicated to exploiting records of past change to help reduce the uncertainties surrounding future projections; within this I co-lead the Ellsworth Mountains Project (http://ellsworthmountains.com/) and the Ancient Kauri Project (http://ancientkauriproject.com/). To do something positive about climate change, I am working with a wonderful group of people at CarbonScape (http://carbonscape.com/), a carbon refining company that has developed microwave technology to fix carbon from the atmosphere and make a host of green bi-products, including activated carbon, sustainable fuels and biochar.
Communicating science is more critical than ever. As a scientist I believe we need to show why science is such a wonderful tool for understanding the world around us; not just the headline discoveries but how science actually works. I have written several books, the most recent of which is 1912: The Year The World Discovered Antarctica which looked at the dawn of a new age in understanding the natural world, and how we might reawaken the public's excitement for exploration and discovery.
Inspired by the events surrounding 1912 I led the Australasian Antarctic Expedition 2013-2014, a privately-funded multidisciplinary scientific expedition, that set out to discover the environmental changes taking place in the south. A major part of the AAE 2013-2014 was communicating our scientific findings – from the deep field and in real time.
You can follow my team in the lab and the field using the full range manner of social media as Intrepid Science (www.intrepidscience.com), reporting discoveries when they happen, where they happen.
I'm passionate about science, adventure and leadership. Please feel free to contact me.
