Adjunct Associate Professor, University of Adelaide
MARK STEVENS – history
With Adelaide as my hometown I enjoyed playing sports most of the time through school years. Not knowing what I wanted to do I naturally gravitated to university where I graduated with Bachelor of Science (Hons) at Flinders University in 1998. I then did what most considered was an oxymoron and migrated with my ‘soon to be’ wife to New Zealand to undertake a PhD at The University of Waikato followed by Postdoctoral Research at Massey University with a 6-month fellowship with CNRS in Paris in 2008. By this time we had two wonderful ‘kiwi’ kids and had become stout ‘All Blacks’ fans! In September 2008 I began my current research position at the South Australian Museum (clearly free baby-sitting was the motivation at the time). At the South Australian Museum, I enjoy collaborating with researchers from Flinders University and The University of Adelaide (where I am an Assoc Prof affiliate) that have provided excellent research facilities, and opportunities to co-supervise honours and PhD students. This has been possible through research grants from the Australia Pacific Science Foundation to study bee diversity and evolution in the South West Pacific. Recent ARC success in 2021 has come with a 7-year funded ARC Special Research Initiative hosted by Monash University “Securing Antarctica's Environmental Future” (https://arcsaef.com/).
Some stats on me if you like numbers: since 2003 I have a h-index of 38 and an i10 of 101 from 181 publications with over 5423 citations (see Google Scholar for publication list: https://scholar.google.com.au/citations?user=Zhnqx9IAAAAJ&hl=en).

Prior to taking up the Deanship at Warwick in 2010, he worked as a Managing Director at BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, where he led the European arm of a multi-billion dollar hedge fund.
Research Officer, University of Leeds
Before starting a late career in academia I worked in the field of IT. In 1996 I started a new career path when I came to Leeds to read Sports Science (Outdoor Activities).
After graduating with honours in 1999 I continued in this vein with a PhD which focused on the impact absorbing mechanisms of climbing helmets. Upon completion of my PhD I was employed as a Research Fellow on an EPSRC funded project to investigate, among other things, novel ways to improve the measurement of air permeability and moisture vapour transmission. Since the end of this project I have worked in many areas related to comfort in extreme environments and protection from falls from a height.
My research interests cover the comfort and protection of clothing systems for extreme and hostile environments and the role of textiles in protection in falls from height or from falling objects. This encompasses areas as diverse as the design of waterproof zip fasteners, improving the impact absorption of properties of sports protectors, measuring comfort in outdoor footwear and preventing scalding through firefighter clothing systems. I have also been active in the field of biomimetic textiles, and supervised a PhD on superadhesion using the gecko foot as inspiration. I developed miniature data logging sensors that are unobtrusive enough to allow the measurement of the microclimate in a shoe. Work is ongoing to further develop these to remove wires from the system. I also developed a novel new system for quick measurements of moisture vapour transmission under realistic conditions which was extensively tested by a PhD student.

Research Fellow in Palaeontology, University of Portsmouth
I'm a palaeontological author, artist and researcher based on the south coast of the UK and affiliated with the University of Portsmouth. I'm best known for my research on pterosaurs and, more recently, my contributions to palaeoart - the evidence-led restoration of extinct organisms in drawings, paintings, sculpture and film.
My background is based more in scientific research than writing and artistry. I obtained my PhD from the University of Portsmouth in 2008 after three years of studying pterosaurs, the flying reptiles contemporaneous with non-avian dinosaurs. I remain active in pterosaur research, but since completing my thesis I've found myself employed more as an artist and consultant on the life appearance of extinct animals than as a traditional academic. My career has thus shifted focus to reconstructing extinct animals, and I now spend more of my time considering the history, methods and technical details of this topic than flying reptiles. I've been lucky to impart some of this knowledge to major media clients, with my creature designs and input being used by the BBC, National Geographic, Royal Mail and the Royal Mint. Alongside my papers, books and book chapters on palaeoart, I also post regularly about palaeoart topics at my blog. My artwork has been displayed around the world in venues such as the Natural History Museum, American Museum of Natural History, Yale Peabody Museum and London's South Bank.
