Professor in Business Analytics and Society, University of Galway
Eoin Whelan is a Professor in Business Analytics & Society at the University of Galway. He is also a visiting professor at the Institute d'’Economie Scientifique et de Gestion (IESEG), France, and a Fulbright scholar at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

I trained as a tree pathologist and spent ten years in Asia working first on a bamboo disease in Bangladesh and then on clove trees in Indonesia on UK aid projects. I've worked around the world, first with the Natural Resources Institute then with CABI for 17 years. My dominant interest for the last 20 years has been in farmer support, stimulated through the development and introduction of plant health clinics to Bolivia, Uganda, Bangladesh and beyond. More recently I have been attached to the University of Aberdeen, where I've returned to an interest in ash trees - the subject of my PhD way back then.
In a varied career that has included studying wild mushrooms in Malawi and bamboo for rural development, it is sometimes difficult to give a concise description of what I do. Hence this rather long-winded explanation. But the main theme has been bridging gaps between the science I love and the people for whom it is intended, whether they are cocoa farmers in DRC (which I visit regularly) or members of the public worrying about the health of the trees in the UK.

Associate Professor, School of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, University of Adelaide
Eric Fusil is a French-Australian Submarine passionate, having dedicated all his 20+ years of professional life to submarine industry.
He is a naval architect by background and had his experience crafted by a variety of roles covering the full spectrum of a boat lifecycle (design, build, test and activation and sustainment) and worldwide (USA, France, Australia) including Submarine Shipyard facilities (performing reviews for overseas customers to assess fitness for purpose).
He is fully aware of the challenges stemming from the local environment and, for instance, can put the Australian Future Submarine and Hunter Class project into perspective with the knowledge of his native background. In other words: he can bridge between two worlds.
After having worked for Naval Group in France and ASC in Australia, he created his own company, ODYSSEE AUS in 2017, working in Defence Industry worldwide before accepting a role at the University of Adelaide
Dedicated to the Australian sovereign capability he is now Assoc. Professor at the University of Adelaide, Director of the Shipbuilding Hub for Integrated Engineering and Local Design, and as Submarine Design postgraduate courses coordinator.
Eric graduated as a Naval Architect (Masters in Engineering) in 1995 from ENSTA Bretagne (a French “grande école d’Ingénieurs” with highly competitive entry exam) after an internship within NAVSEA (Virginia, USA) and started his career in Production Quality controls for noise and vibration during build on SSBN and SSK, for what was DCNS and now known as Naval Group.
He then managed submarines sea trials and their commissioning for demanding customers (domestic and overseas).
From 1999 to 2003, he delivered in the pre-concept, concept and preliminary design phases of Barracuda submarine as engineer in charge of signatures and shock (underwater explosions).
In 2006, he joined the concept design office to be the lead naval architect and ultimately whole-of-boat technical lead for new batches of Scorpene conventional submarines up to 2012, including bids for overseas customers.
He joined ASC in 2013 after 18 years of submarine industry, 4 classes of submarines at sea or being built and roughly 2,000 hours of undersea navigation on submarines.
He was in charge of the Future Submarine design and build aspects at ASC PTY Ltd with his team of engineers and ultimately worked in submarine capability development before creating his own company, ODYSSEE AUS, in 2017 with customers in France, Australia and overseas.
Eric presented papers in forums such as Undersea Defence Technology in Europe, Anti Submarine Warfare conference in Singapore, Submarine Institute of Australia and Pacific Conferences.
He is a chartered engineer with Engineers Australia, a member of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects and of the Submarine Institute of Australia.
He is now course coordinator and lecturer for the postgraduate Submarine Design courses leading to the Masters of Marine Engineering of the University of Adelaide and the newly created French Australian Dual Degree with ENSTA Bretagne.
He has also initiated and developed the Adelaide French Australian Schools with a focus on bilingual education.

Professor of Paediatrics, Karolinska Institutet
My research projects aim to advance the understanding about the complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors involved in lung growth, respiratory and allergic diseases in children. The projects are primarily based on a Swedish birth cohort, BAMSE that allows for unique investigation of lung function, respiratory and allergic diseases in a large number of children up to adulthood. Detailed information about perinatal events, environmental exposures such as air pollution and tobacco smoke exposure from birth and onwards has been collected. Currently, we are also performing a targeted COVID-19 follow-up of the cohort.
In our ongoing genetics projects, genome-wide approaches are primarily used (GWAS, global methylation analyses and RNA sequencing / microarray approaches) together with detailed clinical and epidemiological data. Extensive national and international collaboration is established (e.g. through the PERMEABLE, GABRIEL, EAGLE and MeDALL projects). We are also engaged in exposome-related research within the EXPANSE consortium. From this translational platform for advanced studies using clinical and epidemiological data sets, we are performing projects that will generate exciting new information in areas that have been little explored so far. For example, the long-term consequence of preterm birth and childhood exposures on lung function in young adulthood (CADSET ERS collaboration); identification of subgroups of the population that are particularly vulnerable to air pollution exposures; clarification of new genetic mechanisms for disease development.
