Allyssa McCabe

Professor of Psychology, UMass Lowell
Allyssa McCabe, Ph.D., is professor of psychology at University of Massachusetts Lowell. She founded and co-edited the journal Narrative Inquiry and has researched how narrative develops with age, the way parents can encourage narration, cultural differences in narration, and interrelationships between the development of narrative, vocabulary, and phonological awareness. With David Dickinson, she has developed a theoretical approach to early literacy called the Comprehensive Language Approach, which looks at ways that the various strands of oral and written language (e.g., vocabulary, phonological awareness, print knowledge) affect each other in the acquisition of full literacy. A key concern is with assessment of preschool-aged children, especially preventing misdiagnosis of cultural differences in language use as deficits. With Chien-ju Chang, she most recently published Chinese Language Narration with John Benjamins. She conducted a successful intervention with preschool children attending the Bartlett School in Lowell, enlisting graduate and undergraduate students to build the oral language skills such children need in order to learn to read and write. With Khanh Dinh, she was funded to study the narrative life stories of Latino and Cambodian high school students in Lowell. With Jana Sladkova, she was funded to study the narratives of immigrant children in Lowell.

Alnoor Ebrahim

Professor of Management, Tufts University
Alnoor Ebrahim is a Professor of Management at The Fletcher School, and the Tisch College of Civic Life, at Tufts University. His research addresses several core dilemmas of social change facing businesses, nonprofit organizations, and public agencies: What strategies should they adopt for delivering and scaling social change? How can they best measure and improve their impacts? How should they design their governance and accountability? How can they influence “system” problems such as global poverty that require collective action?

Many of these questions are addressed in Professor Ebrahim’s book, Measuring Social Change: Performance and Accountability in a Complex World (Stanford University Press), which has received multiple awards, including from the Financial Times and Impact & Sustainable Finance Faculty Consortium, and The Alliance for Nonprofit Management. He is also author of the award-winning NGOs and Organizational Change: Discourse, Reporting, and Learning and is co-editor of Global Accountabilities: Participation, Pluralism, and Public Ethics (both with Cambridge University Press).

Alpesh Bhudia

Doctoral Researcher in Cyber Security, Royal Holloway University of London
Alpesh Bhudia is a Doctoral candidate at the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber-Security for the Everyday, Information Security Group, Royal Holloway University of London.

His research focuses on exploitation of security flaws and design-time assumptions by extortionware and ransomware, and the remediation of those issues. His early work focused on leveraging secure enclaves (SGX) to protect ransomware keys from anti-ransomware software (e.g., Paybreak), in the interest of highlighting the lack of depth in contemporary anti-ransomware approaches [1][2]. This has since evolved into a body of work that includes Proof-of-Stake validators (staking pool operators/investors) as potential targets for next generation ransomware. His research interests include trusted execution environments, user security, ransomware, cyber extortion, and decentralised systems modelling to identify novel exploits and develop countermeasures.

Alton C. Byers

Senior Research Associate, Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research, University of Colorado Boulder
Alton C. Byers is a mountain geographer, conservationist, and mountaineer specializing in applied research, high altitude ecosystems, glacier hazards, and implementation of integrated conservation and development programs in the Himalayas, Andes, and East African Highlands. He has published widely on a range of scientific and popular topics, and is an author and co-editor of Mountain Geography: Human and Physical Dimensions (University of California Press at Berkeley, 2013).

Following receipt of his PhD from the Department of Geography at CU Boulder in 1987, he accepted a two-year position as Co-Manager of the Ruhengeri Resource Analysis and Management (RRAM) project in Ruhengeri Prefecture, Rwanda, volunteering as Scientific Advisor to the late Dian Fossey’s Karasoke Research Center. Following this he was hired by the then-Woodlands Mountain Institute to assist in the design, fundraising, and co-management of the new Makalu-Barun National Park and Conservation Area in eastern Nepal, where he lived for two years (1993-95) in a Nepali village with his young family. Upon his return to the U.S. in 1995, he established, funded, and worked as Director of the Andean Program with a base of operations in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, turning the program over to a Peruvian national in 1997 who has managed the project ever since. This period of his career corresponded with a growing interest in alpine conservation and restoration, particularly in tourist-impacted regions of the Himalayas and Andes, where he combined applied research with community awareness building to form several local Alpine Conservation Councils in Nepal and Peru that remain effective to this day. He became Director of Appalachian Programs in 1998, developing a range of local conservation, mountain education, and teacher training programs, including the School for Mountain Studies that regularly took undergraduates on field courses to the Mt. Everest region of Nepal and Cordilleras Blanca and Huayhuash in Peru.

In the 2000s, Byers added climate change impacts on high mountain environments to his ongoing portfolio of alpine research and conservation, landscape change, and glacial lake management and risk reduction interests, funding and hosting three international, field-based climate change workshops in Nepal and Peru between 2009 and 2013. The High Mountains Adaptation Partnership (HiMAP), that he has co-managed since 2012 with the University of Texas at Austin, has been a particular highlight in his career, where he developed approaches to integrating results from HiMAP glacial lake rapid reconnaissance research into the local adaptation plan of action (LAPA) process. After 25 years at TMI of project implementation, applied research, cross-programmatic and institutional fundraising, he left TMI in April 2015 to pursue a range of writing, research, and high mountain projects and initiatives, and currently serves as Senior Research Associate at INSTAAR.

And the third one explores ways of Managing Violence in Post-Conflict Societies.

My other subsidiary research interests are: ethno-politics; conservative nationalism; religious radicalism; and peace-building in deeply divided societies.

Amanda Avery

Lecturer in Nutrition, University of Nottingham
Amanda Avery worked as a community dietitian in Southern Derbyshire for over 22 years, with both a public health remit and as a clinician working in primary care, before moving to Nottingham University in 2009 as a lecturer in Nutrition and Dietetics.

A period of time was spent working in the Public Health department with the remit to develop a local Obesity Strategy. This was developed and launched in 2000 so was very much one of the first local obesity strategies available! During the secondment period there was also the opportunity to explore the feasibility of Primary Care working in partnership with the commercial slimming sector and project managing this piece of research. This became the evidence base for the slimming on referral scheme which is now part of many local weight management pathways across the country. It was also the start of my involvement with Slimming World where I have now worked on a part-time basis for the past 10 years as a Consultant dietitian in weight management. This provides many opportunities to keep totally up-to-date with all the developments in weight management and to be involved in developments within the Company - for example being involved in the development of a programme for teenagers and more recently involvement in a RCT developing an intervention to support appropriate weight management during pregnancy.

Other areas of interest, developed throughout those many years of community work, are community development, infant nutrition - chairing the group involved in the development of a local infant feeding policy (all 4editions), school meals, diabetes management and behaviour change techniques. One of my greatest achievements, (in my eyes), was my involvement in the Change to Cup campaign which has the potential to have a significant influence on nutritional intake. It is great to see that at last more emphasis is being placed on getting nutrition right from a very young age and indeed re-prioritising pregnancy as a key time.
