Sergi Pardos-Prado

I work on two main lines of research. The first deals with political behaviour and comparative politics questions in Europe, and the second deals with the impact of migration processes on public attitudes and political outcomes. More specifically, I have devoted some time now to analyse how the immigration issue is incorporated into patterns of political competition and affects electoral outcomes, both in countries with and without a prominent anti-immigrant party in Parliament.

Regarding my political behaviour and comparative politics line of research, I am working on a number of projects assessing the conditional effect of institutions, media discourse and party system characteristics on different forms of voting, including proximity, directional, and valence voting. I am also studying the interaction between power-sharing institutions and traditional individual-level predictors of electoral turnout. Finally, I am also interested in the formation of subjective perceptions of the national economy, and the moderating effect of personal socioeconomic circumstances and party messages in this process.

As for my research on immigration, I mostly analyse patterns of xenophobia and racism from a comparative perspective in Europe. More specifically, I deal with the direct or indirect impact of several predictors on attitudes towards immigration, namely personality traits, local and national levels of ethnic diversity, and ideological predispositions. More recently I have also implemented longitudinal analyses of xenophobia over individual life cycles using panel data, and survey experiments assessing the impact of different forms of ethnic diversity on the willingness to redistribute resources in a given community.

Shannon Rutherford

Associate Professor, Public Health, Griffith University
With a background in environmental science, my career has focussed on researching the links between environmental change and human health and building capacity to understand and respond at local, national and global levels. I have been involved in research to solve public health problems, from pandemic risk communication in China, mosquito-borne diseases in Kenya and Bangladesh, coastal salinity and hypertension in Bangladesh, to disasters and climate change governance in China, Philippines and Indonesia.

My leadership and expertise in climate and health has developed from working with WHO on climate and water, teaching climate and health content into university postgraduate and short courses (Bangladesh and Pakistan), master supervision (food security and climate, heat and health adaptation policy in India, hope and climate action in young Australians, digital uptake in heat sensitive populations of Australia) and HDR supervision (flood vulnerability in China, climate and infectious disease in Vietnam, climate and dengue fever in Bangladesh, climate-health adaptation policy in the Philippines, heat and worker health in garment factory workers, heat and early warning systems in older people). I lead the Climate and Health Collective, a Griffith group of multi-disciplinary researchers committed to collaboration to solve climate and health problems. This collective has led to large external research grants, WHO projects and numerous health related Climate Action Beacon projects.

My research achievements are founded on quality HDR supervision, an extensive publication track record and a collaborative research leadership approach. I am committed to leading transdisciplinary research that improves the health of communities, focussing on climate and health impact and risk management research that aligns with Griffith’s Strategic Plan 2020-2025 high level goal of ‘providing research solutions to humankind’s greatest challenges’.

I currently teach into Griffith’s Master of Public Health and Master of Global Public Health programs producing public health professions capable of addressing the many complex and diverse current and emerging health issues that we face as a global community.

Simon Griffith

Professor of Avian Behavioural Ecology, Macquarie University
I am an evolutionary biologist and have spent most of my career to date investigating how the reproductive behaviour of birds drives the process of speciation and the amazing diversity of birds that we hear and see around us.

Reproductive behaviour can be broken down into many components, such as: the expression of ornaments like colourful plumage; the process of choosing a social partner to breed with; how many offspring to have; how many sons or daughters to have; how much investment you make in current or future offspring. All of these decisions affect the quality of the resulting offspring. It is the variation in quality amongst individuals in a population that the process of natural selection acts upon. The best quality individuals are likely to be more attractive, live longer and produce more offspring than individuals or lower quality. Over generations, the population will change as a result of this non-random selection and eventually a new species is born.

Birds have provided a disproportionate level of insight into evolutionary biology over the past hundred years because they are well surveyed, well understood and highly amenable to morphological and behavioural research. Developing a better knowledge of avian reproductive behaviour increases our capacity to conserve biodiversity and understand ourselves, because most birds share the same socially monogamous mating system as humans – a system that is actually very rare among other mammals.
