Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior, EM Lyon Business School
My research interests focus on the interplay of employees' work and home lives, considering how events, behaviors, and characteristics of the workplace "spillover" to impact the daily health behaviors of employees (e.g., alcohol use, sleep). Most recently, I have begun exploring the impact that various compensation practices have on employee health, extending existing work that focuses predominately on performance outcomes.
My work has been published in top scientific journals, including the Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, Current Directions in Psychology, Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, among others. My research has also been featured in media outlets, including CNN, NPR, Fox, USA Today, U.S. News and World Report, The Telegraph, The Guardian, The Independent, Fast Company, Slate, Yahoo, MarketWatch, and Science Daily.
My research interests are in the fields of animal behaviour, ecology and conservation, with particular focus on the effects of human activities on wildlife, animal cognition and the behavioural ecology of large herbivores. I have studied African elephants for over a decade, addressing questions on foraging and movement ecology as well as investigating the detailed social and ecological knowledge of elephant family groups and their matriarchs. The research that I have conducted on elephant cognition has involved extensive use of acoustic playbacks, whereby animal vocalisations are broadcast to study the responses of elephants to social and ecological threats. More recently, I have applied these playback techniques to understand the effects of anthropogenic noise - a growing source of environmental disturbance - on animal behavior and wildlife ecology. I am also interested in the role that large herbivores play in ecosystem function and structure in natural and human altered habitats.

Lecturer in Immunology, Edinburgh Napier University
My research focuses on cellular-therapy for the treatment of autoimmune disease. We have shown in models of rheumatoid arthritis that naturally occurring suppressive white blood cells modified using gene-transfer can home to disease sites and actively suppress disease. We are now working on translating this work to the clinic for both rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. My work utilises many of the approaches developed in the field of cancer cell therapy, an area of research I was involved in during my PhD.
I was awarded my PhD from UCL in 2009, followed by fellowship from Arthritis Research UK at the Centre for Rheumatology Research. I am currently a Lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University.

Lecturer in Film Studies, Bangor University
I am Lecturer in Film Studies at Bangor University, from January 2016. Previously I taught Film, Television and Media Studies at University of Warwick (where I completed by PhD in December 2012), University of York, Leeds Beckett University and Manchester Metropolitan University. My book, The American President in Film and Television: Myth, Politics and Representation, was published by Peter Lang in 2014. It recently achieved runner-up in the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies' 2016 Best Monograph award.
Originally, I worked on mathematical logic and its applications to theoretical computer science. I applied combinatorics and probability to computer theory, and worked on "probabilistic methods." In addition, I got interested in mathematics education and philosophy. Meanwhile, because of an upheaval at my campus, I became active in the faculty union and involved in university policies and politics as well as Islam in America and terrorism. Then some chemists got me involved in crystallography and crystal design, and hence in nanoscience: much of my work during the last decade has been in applications of algebra, combinatorics and geometry to crystal design and other nanostructures, which involves some scientific computing. I have published on all these subjects in academic journals.
Greg’s expertise is in international law with research interests in its applications to counter-terrorism and to environmental protection. He teaches across these areas and Administrative Law.
His research in the area of environmental protection addresses mechanisms for the effective implementation of international environmental standards. In relation to counterterrorism, Greg is currently researching the laws of armed conflict in their application to non-State actors engaged in political violence at the level of hostilities.
Greg is an Associate Editor of the Yearbook of International Environmental Law and is a member of the Editorial Board (previously Editor-in-Chief) of the Review of European Community and International Environmental Law (RECIEL).

Professor of History, University of St Andrews
Guy Rowlands’ research interests lie principally in late seventeenth- and eighteenth-century military, naval, financial and French history.
His first book, The Dynastic State and the Army under Louis XIV. Royal Service and Private Interest, 1661 to 1701 (Cambridge University Press, 2002), used political, social, cultural and military approaches to examine how Louis XIV and his ministers were able to increase the size of the French army five-fold over a period of 30 years, and it stressed the importance of integrating the multiple private interests of noble families into calculations of how to organise the state. This book was co-winner of the Royal Historical Society’s Gladstone Prize in 2003.
His recent work has been on early eighteenth-century financial history. His second book, entitled The Financial Decline of a Great Power. War, Influence, and Money in Louis XIV's France (Oxford University Press, 2012), places military paymasters and suppliers at the centre of an explanation of how and why the French state’s financial situation deteriorated dramatically during the War of the Spanish Succession. Louis XIV bequeathed a legacy of debt generated in this war to his successors that made an ultimate breakdown of government much more likely. The book focusses, as no book on early modern state finances has done before, on the full range of state financial activity – taxation, borrowing, monetary policy, the appropriations system and expenditure – to explain how things went so badly wrong.
His third book, Dangerous and Dishonest Men: the International Bankers of Louis XIV’s France (Palgrave, 2014), follows up the previous study by looking at the extraordinary but damaging role played by foreign exchange and international bankers in France’s eighteenth-century troubles. At the start of the eighteenth century Louis XIV needed to remit huge sums of money abroad to support his armies during the War of the Spanish Succession. This book explains how international bankers moved French money across Europe, and how the foreign exchange system was so overloaded by the demands of war that a massive banking crash resulted.
Prof. Rowlands is currently in negotiation with a major press for the production of a work of grand synthesis on “War and the State in the Early Modern European World”. He is planning a bid to funding councils for a major project on the emerging western European states, military power and the civilian contractors who serviced and supplied their armed forces in the period 1660-1730. In recent decades the defence establishments of the NATO powers have employed civilian contractors for logistical tasks on a very large scale once again, but there seems to be a real lack of appreciation that so many of these arrangements have been tried before, and particularly so once the state started to emerge in a recognisably modern form after the mid-seventeenth century. As part of this he is already working on another book on arms, artillery and absolute monarchy in Louis XIV’s France.
In the longer term he is working towards a comprehensive, international history of logistics from the mid-17th century to the present day. Prof. Rowlands also has extensive interests in European international and transnational relations between the 1660s and the outbreak of the French Revolution (1789), and he maintains an interest in Jacobitism on the continent between 1688 and 1720.
