Jason Stearns

Assistant Professor, School for International Studies, Simon Fraser University
Jason Stearns is a political scientist interested in dynamics of violence and other forms of social mobilization in Africa, with a particular focus on the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This research has also led him to scrutinize the impact––or lack thereof––of UN peacekeeping, international advocacy, and humanitarian relief operations on armed conflict.

Since 2001, Jason has been focused on better understanding the factors contributing to armed conflict in the Congo. He has worked for Héritiers de la Justice, a Congolese human rights organization, the International Crisis Group, the Rift Valley Institute, the United Nations peacekeeping mission, and Yale University. In 2008, he was coordinator on the United Nations Group of Experts on the DR Congo. In 2010, he published Dancing in the Glory of Monster: The Collapse of the Congo and the Great War of Africa (Public Affairs), a narrative history of the Congolese wars between 1996 and 2006. He is currently finalizing another book on conflict dynamics since 2006, to be published by Princeton University Press in 2020.

In 2014, Jason founded the Congo Research Group, which has been based since then at New York University's Center on International Cooperation. CRG's mandate is to conduct investigative research into armed conflict in the Congo, to promote Congolese voices in debates around their country, and to render Congolese and foreign policy on the conflict more accountable and transparent. CRG has published over a dozen reports, including investigations into massacres in Beni territory and the Kasai region, an examination of the assets and investments of Joseph Kabila's family, and a series of nationwide political opinion polls. CRG also co-manages with Human Rights Watch the Kivu Security Tracker, a website that plots violent incidents in North and South Kivu provinces.

Jason sees contentious politics––ranging from armed rebellions to youth movements––as closely tied to the broader social, economic, and political trends in society. He is currently researching how recent transformations in sub-Saharan African countries have changed the way citizens mobilize. For example, he is interested in understanding how dramatic urbanization, the privatization of the state, the rise of China, and oscillation in foreign aid have affected the forms and patterns of contentious politics––both peaceful and violent––that we can see on the continent. Jason sees the role of ideology and culture as vital to these dynamics and is examining how the end of the Cold War has shifted how citizens articulate their vision of a just society.

Jason C.K. Chan

Professor of Psychology, Iowa State University
Professor Chan obtained his Ph.D. in 2007 from Washington University in St. Louis and joined the faculty at Iowa State University the same year, where he has remained since.

Dr. Chan’s research focuses on improving memory performance in both the educational and legal contexts. Although these domains appear quite disparate, his research shows that theoretical discoveries from one domain (e.g., retrieval enhances future learning of new materials) often facilitates understanding of phenomena in the other (e.g., retrieval can exacerbate eyewitness suggestibility to misinformation). His research has received over 3,000 citations and he has published in many of the top journals in the field, including Psychological Bulletin, Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, Psychological Science, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In recognition for his scientific contributions, he has been elected Fellow of the American Psychological Association, Association for Psychological Science, Psychonomic Society, and Midwestern Psychological Association. He received the J. Don Read Early Career Award in 2015 from the Society of Applied Research in Memory & Cognition and the Rising Star recognition in 2012 from the Association for Psychological Science. He served as associate editor of the Journal of Memory & Language from 2021-2023 and had previously served as consulting editor for the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition and the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied. His research is supported by the National Science Foundation.

In addition to research, Dr. Chan is also recognized for his teaching and graduate supervision efforts. Since arriving at Iowa State, Dr. Chan has received a University Award for Early Career Achievement in Teaching, a College level Shakeshaft Master Teacher Award, three Departmental Awards for Teaching, and the award for Excellence in Mentoring.

Jay Sexton

I was born and raised in Salina, Kansas, a town near the geographic center of the contiguous United States. I read History and English at the University of Kansas. I first came to Oxford on an undergraduate study abroad year and was immediately drawn to the tutorial system. I was fortunate to return to Britain as a post-graduate Marshall Scholar at Worcester College, Oxford. After finishing a D.Phil. in modern history, I went to Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge on a Junior Research Fellowship, before assuming my present post as University Lecturer in American History and Tutorial Fellow in History at Corpus Christi College.

My principal research focuses on nineteenth century American history. From the perspective of the twenty-first century, the rise of the United States appears natural and inevitable. Yet there was nothing pre-ordained about the consolidation of the American Union, nor the establishment of the American empire. I am interested in why this group of former British colonies bound together and how their fragile union survived fundamental ideological and political disputes, such as those unleashed by the entrenchment of slavery in the Southern states. Most of my research has focused on nineteenth century US foreign relations and Americans' paradoxical relationship with empire. As Americans struggled to free themselves from their colonial past, they constructed their own empire, engaged in their own conquests, and exercised effective control over other peoples. My work connects the United States' foreign relations with its project of nation-building at home.

In addition to the above, I have secondary research interests in the American Civil War, international finance and economics in the nineteenth century, Anglo-American relations, and US cultural expansion.

I supervise post-graduate researchers working on America in the world in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, the American Civil War, and US economic development.

Jayasankar Pillai

Research Fellow, Geography and Environmental Sciences, Northumbria University, Newcastle
At Northumbria University, I work with Prof. Adrian Jenkins on a project where the main objective is to improve the representation of ice-sheet-ocean interactions in the coupled models that are used to project future ice sheet evolution.

During my PhD I studied 1) the coupled dynamics of the Indo-Pacific Ocean using regional ocean modelling; 2) the Indian Ocean deep Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC); and 3) the Atmosphere-Ocean contribution to the equatorial Pacific sea surface temperatures (drivers of ENSO events). The study was motivated by the growing influence of the rapidly warming Indian Ocean on the Pacific Ocean and the overwhelming influence of the Pacific Ocean on the global climate.

The project I am currently involved in is known as ‘PROjecTing sEa-level rise: from iCe sheets to local implicaTions (PROTECT)’. The research involves the Investigation of the potential future sea level contribution of the Antarctic Ice Sheet. The main aim of the work is to improve the representation of ice-sheet-ocean interactions in the coupled models that are used to project future ice sheet evolution. This involves development, implementation and evaluation of algorithms that facilitate the passing of key variables between the ocean and ice sheet component models.

My other research interests are the future of Deep Meridional Overturning Circulations (MOCs) and El Niño Southern Oscillations (ENSO) in a warming climate. I am also interested in regional climate impact assessment studies.

Jayne Glass

Researcher in Geography, Uppsala University
My research interests revolve around theories and practice related to sustainable rural development and land use. I take an inclusive and collaborative approach to my work, regularly facilitating or working in interdisciplinary teams to deliver research that directly impacts policy and practice.

I am currently engaged in research and knowledge exchange in five inter-related themes: multi-stakeholder, land-based collaboration for sustainable development and climate change mitigation (including narratives relating to natural capital); rural poverty and social exclusion; power and social inequality in relation to land and asset tenure/management models; place-based community activism and rural advocacy; and research impact.

Other research has spanned many contexts, including socio-economic and environmental outcomes of rural land uses, game management (for sport and conservation), community and stakeholder engagement, community-led local development, community involvement in renewable energy, and community resilience.

I am motivated by transdisciplinary research that integrates and synthesises many different disciplinary perspectives, between both academic and non-academic actors. I believe that the process of research provides an opportunity for those involved to consider new insights and knowledge, rethink their assumptions, and solve problems in a communicative and collaborative manner. At a time when sustainability challenges are characterised by complexity, divergent perspectives of problems and solutions, and fragmented institutional contexts, the social practices of research should be transformative for all involved, including the researchers. In practice, this means that a lot of my work to date has facilitated deliberative dialogue between policy, practice and academic stakeholders, developing practical outcomes and immediate policy impact.

Jean Bennett

Professor Emeritus of Ophthalmology; Cell and Developmental Biology, University of Pennsylvania
Jean Bennett was recruited to the Scheie Eye Institute at University of Pennsylvania’s School of Medicine in 1992 where she has spent the past 3 decades developing gene-based strategies for treating inherited retinal degenerations. There she has run a true bench-to-bedside translational research program and, in the process, has trained hundreds of physician-scientists, many of whom are now leaders in translational research around the globe. She was the scientific leader of a team that translated reversal of blindness in animal models to demonstration of efficacy and safety of gene therapy in children and adults. She was the scientific director of clinical studies at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia that led to first FDA-approved gene therapy for a genetic disease (blindness due to RPE65 deficiency, studies that were sponsored by a company that she co-founded (but in which she waived financial benefit), Spark Therapeutics). She helped develop the primary outcome measure for that trial that led in 2017 to the first US FDA-approved gene therapy product. It also led to approval of the reagent, “Luxturna”, by the European Medicines Agency. Jean continues to develop gene-based therapies for retinal degenerative diseases and to tackle some of the limitations of current gene therapy technologies. She recently co-founded Opus Genetics to help those patients and families that suffer from conditions that are so rare that they have been neglected by big pharma. Jean graduated from Yale College with a BS in Honors Biology, received her PhD (Zoology, Cell and Developmental Biology) from University of California, Berkeley and her MD from Harvard Medical School. She then received post-graduate training at Yale University and Johns Hopkins in Human Genetics and Developmental Genetics. An internationally recognized expert in gene therapy, Dr. Bennett has authored more than 120 peer-reviewed papers.
