Derina Johnson

Postdoctoral Researcher, Trinity College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin

Prior to commencing her PhD under the supervision of Professor Robbie Gilligan at Trinity College Dublin's School of Social Work and Social Policy, Derina spent three years living on the Thailand-Myanmar border. There she collaborated with refugee and migrant groups on culturally appropriate and sustainable psychosocial care programmes for children and youth. Prior to this Derina ran her own play therapy practice in Dublin. Derina obtained her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Psychology from University College Dublin, and studied Play Therapy and Psychotherapy at the Children’s Therapy Centre with Eileen Prendiville.

Derina's PhD research explored the lives of young people growing up in legal and social marginalisation on the Thailand-Myanmar border. Drawing from 11 months' fieldwork, the research provides a glimpse into the realities of growing up in displacement and lack of documentation; as an “illegal migrant”, facing restricted mobility, limited access to education and other essential services, narrow migrant labour market demands, and everyday vulnerability to exploitation and poverty.

The research revealed nuanced insights into the legal and social precarity which characterises the young people's lifeworlds and ways of being in the world, and the normalisation of suffering and struggle in the quest to create a better future for them and their families. Within this extreme adversity, optimism and pragmatism, resistance and endurance, determination and flexibility emerged as key facets of the young people’s engagement in their worlds, as well as their agency and resilience in the face of certain uncertainty.,

Derina continues to work at Trinity College Dublin, as a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Medicine (Paediatrics) and Trinity Research in Childhood Centre, and as project manager of the Horizon 2020 funded energy efficiency socio-economic research project CONSEED.

Diana Mok

Associate Professor of Real Estate Finance and Economics, Western University
My research interests are broadly defined in the realm of real estate and urban economics, with a focus on housing and urban development. Most of my research studies have been applied, empirical studies of urban phenomena drawn from existing theories, and I often adopt a spatial lens to study my research questions. Specifically, my research has evolved and developed around three themes, intertwined, and with a spatial focus: risk, real estate, and urban growth. I seek to understand the interrelatedness among risk, the real estate market, and how the real estate market affects people’s economic activities in everyday life.

Diego Restrepo

Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
I am a systems neuroscientist with a background in biophysics. The goal of my research is to understand how brain circuits mediate decision making to complex sensory input. In my lab, we study how sensory processing areas of the olfactory and somatosensory systems handle information relevant to decision-making, and how they interact with downstream regions such as the hippocampus and cerebellum. In addition, we study the circuit basis for behavioral deficits in mild demyelination and neurodevelopmental disorders.

To tackle these questions, we use an interdisciplinary approach employing high-density electrical recording, advanced microscopy, closed loop optogenetics, and computational neuroscience.

Duncan Stone

Visiting Researcher, University of Huddersfield

My PhD examined the historical, sociological and cultural machinations of cricket in southern England, with a particular emphasis upon the philosophical origins of amateurism, how amateurism was used as a means of class distinction and the influence this had upon the development of regional identities.

My post-doctoral work aims to investigate (amongst other things) the links between social class, the suburbanisation process and cultural change. I am also writing a social history of English cricket, with a particular emphasis upon amateur cricket – the game as played and watched by the vast majority of the sport's followers – and the relationship this level of cricket had with the so-called 'first class' game.
