Ann Bajo is a PhD Candidate at University of Portsmouth. Her research interest is defense and security in Southeast Asia. Currently, she is examining the role of Malaysia in the insurgent conflicts in the Philippines (Mindanao) and Thailand (Pattani). In the Philippines, she was a former Division Chief at the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace, Reconciliation and Unity. Prior to that, she worked in the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) as a Defense Analyst for eight years.

I am a qualitative researcher, interested in how people relate to each other in contemporary society and the impact of present/future design choices. A fascination with digital mediation led me to make studies of websites and online discussion as early as 1995, and I now focus on mobile and ubiquitous contexts of use. An important element of my work has been looking at design globally - with projects in Ghana, India, Chile and Uganda, workshops on six continents, and a role advising the European Union on the future of the Internet.
I was a member of the Culture, Communication and Computing Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam University for several years, working closely with the four councils of South Yorkshire to research digital engagement strategies, and also holding an appointment in Drama at Queen Mary, University of London, where I devised methodology for communities to participate in designing future digital tools. More recently I held a post at Northumbria's Design School. I have been multiply funded under the interdisciplinary RCUK calls of Designing for the 21st Century and Connected Communities. In my research, I work extensively with arts organisations, grass-roots community groups, older people and marginalised communities, focusing on meaning-making, identity, inclusion and experience of technology.
I bring broad experience of interaction design practices including long-term consultancy in design companies (Flow Interactive http://www.flow-interactive.com, Fjord www.fjordnet.com), as well as projects with the likes of The Guardian, the BBC and the transport arm of Amey Technology.
I publish on social innovation, human-computer interaction and cross-cultural methodology, having helped design and evaluate websites, mobile phones, social networks and technologies of augmented reality, automatic identity capture (AIDC), ubiquitous computing and the Internet of Things.

My academic expertise encompasses contemporary performance analysis, the history and contemporary practice of dramaturgy, institutional aesthetics and change, decolonial and postcolonial critique and intersectional analyses as well as a specific focus on German-speaking theatre. In addition to my academic work, I specialise in dramaturgy practice and cultural curating. From 2015-19, I worked as cultural programmer for the German cultural institute Goethe-Institut in Glasgow. Since January 2021, I have been a board member for the intersectional feminist theatre company Stellar Quines.

Dr Anna Bryson is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Law and a Fellow at the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice.
Her most recent research has developed at the intersection of socio-legal studies, transitional justice and oral history.
She is currently working on two RCUK funded projects - 'Enhancing Democratic Habits: An Oral History of the Law Centre Movement' (AHRC-funded collaboration with colleagues at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford, and the British Library) and 'Apologies and Dealing with the Past' (Principal Investigator on ESRC Impact Acceleration grant). In addition, her recently awarded British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship is supporting the completion of her fifth book titled ‘Conflict and Civility: Memory, Identity and Dealing with the Past in Northern Ireland’.
Anna has previously been co-Investigator on a number of externally funded research projects including ‘Apologies, Abuses and Dealing with the Past: A Socio-Legal Analysis’ (ESRC) and ‘Brexit and Northern Ireland: The Constitutional, Conflict Transformation, Human Rights and Equality Consequences’ (ESRC). The co-authored monograph (with K. McEvoy and L. Mallinder) arising from an ESRC-funded international comparative project on ‘Lawyers in Conflict and Transition’ was published by Cambridge University Press in March 2022.
Prior to her appointment to QUB Law in 2014, Anna was involved in a series of research projects exploring various aspects of the history and legacy of conflict (including the €1.1million EU-funded ‘Peace Process: Layers of Meaning’ project she co-directed with S. McConville). She has significant expertise in the theory and practice of oral history and has to date conducted more than 200 substantial interviews with a wide range of individuals including victims and survivors, former security force personnel, ex-combatants and former prisoners, lawyers, politicians and senior government officials. She is the Northern Ireland representative for the Oral History Society and provides accredited training on behalf of the organisation.
In 2020 Anna was elected as Chair of the independent human rights organisation, the Committee on the Administration of Justice. She is also a member of the AHRC Peer Review College. In 2021 she was a Visiting Scholar at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies at the University of Oxford.
In recognition of her successful delivery of a range of modules at undergraduate and post-graduate level and the fact that her career is grounded in 'an integrated approach to teaching and research leadership' she was appointed Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in July 2021.
As Impact Champion for the School of Law, Anna works closely with colleagues at School and Faculty level to help cultivate world-leading research that addresses both local and global challenges. She is the QUB staff representative for the Knowledge Exchange Seminar Series at Stormont and she was recently elected to the Board of the Socio-Legal Studies Association (and the Impact Award committee). Drawing on her previous experience as Chair of the QUB Law ethics committee she was appointed to the Royal Irish Academy’s ‘Ethical, Political, Legal and Philosophical Studies Committee’ for the 2022-26 term.
Anna was co-author (with K. McEvoy and L. Mallinder) of a REF 2021 4* Impact Case Study on Dealing with the Past in Northern Ireland. This reflected intense and sustained engagement with colleagues from QUB Law, the Committee on the Administration of Justice and a former senior Foreign and Commonwealth Office lawyer to inform key debates on dealing with the past in Northern Ireland and in particular to provide accessible legal and policy commentary to a wide range of stakeholders. Outputs from the collaboration have included authoring over 30 policy documents and blogs, drafting ‘model legislation’, writing responses to government consultations and providing free technical legal and policy advice to key stakeholders in Northern Ireland (victims and survivors, civil society organisations, the British and Irish governments, political parties, veterans, former combatants, the British Army, the PSNI, religious leaders, politicians) as well the British and Irish governments and international actors e.g. Council of Europe, US Congress and the United Nations. During this time the Model Bill Team organised twenty public seminars and six major conferences (attended by senior representatives of the British and Irish governments). Anna has given expert evidence to the Joint Oireachtas Committee on the Good Friday Agreement (2018), the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee (2020, 2022) and the US House Foreign Affairs sub-committee on Europe (2022) and has contributed extensively to media analysis of issues relevant to her research (television, radio, blogs). In 2016 Anna was awarded a QUB Vice-Chancellor's Research Impact Prize for her work on the Oral History Archive proposed under the Stormont House Agreement.

I am Deputy Director (Academic) of the International Development Office at the OU, with oversight across all our programmes which deal with teacher training, child rights, higher education capacity building and more. Issues like trafficking are part of a broader theory of change around education – for example teacher training is an essential element in supporting children to be aware of their own rights. I have been on the board of a school in Kathmandu for about 15 years, and visit Nepal about twice a year on average.
I have edited 3 books, written 12 chapters and delivered a large number of papers, conference presentations etc. My early research area (most of which is published under Anna Peachey) was in online presence and student community, which transitioned into innovation in education for development. My last keynote was at a conference on Higher Education for Development in Ethiopia last summer, and I will soon deliver a keynote at Nepal's National Conference on Science and Technology, an event that takes place every 4 years and is inaugurated by the Prime Minister of Nepal. The theme for 2016 is Science, Technology and Innovation for Nepal’s Graduation to Developing Country Status.

Associate Professor in Public Health and Policy, Te Herenga Waka — Victoria University of Wellington
I am based at Victoria University of Wellington and teach about health policy and health systems. I am currently leading the evaluation of Healthy Families NZ - a multi-community policy intervention to prevent chronic illnesses. I have a keen interest in complexity theory and its application to social systems and the empirical evidence on health. My research focus to date has mainly been examining interventions to address population health challenges, including the social determinants and equity, to better understand their potential effectiveness. I am an Principal Investigator with Te Pūnaha Matatini, the Aotearoa New Zealand Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) for complex systems.
PhD Candidate in Nutrition & Metabolism, University of Bath
Anna is currently doing a BBSRC-funded PhD in nutrition and metabolic physiology at the University of Bath.

She holds an MSc in Human Nutrition from the University of Surrey, an MSc in Environmental Technology from Imperial College London and a BA in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge.
Professor of Environmental Chemistry and Head of Department of Environmental Sciences, Stockholm University
My research is about organic contaminants. I am interested in how contaminants distribute in the environment, with emphasis on the aquatic environment, and how processes in the environment affect where contaminants end up and what risk they pose to organisms and ecosystems. Much of my research therefore bridges between environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology and biogeochemistry, and sometimes even environmental law and social sciences. I am interested in the organic carbon cycle and how it contributes to determine environmental fate and risk of hydrophobic organic contaminants. A recent example of this is the work we did to study how the origin of organic matter in Baltic Sea sediment affects the sediment sorption capacity of PCBs and PAHs, and thereby also the release of these chemicals to the water column.
In my research group we currently have several projects to study the effects of organic contaminant mixtures on various aquatic organisms by using passive dosing and the chemical activity concept.
We have projects to study processes that affect the release of contaminants from sediment to water and how to use passive samplers for improved risk assessment of contaminated sediments. In a collaborative project with researchers on hadal systems, we study the occurrence of organic contaminants in hadal trenches (the deepest parts of the global ocean). Here we are particularly interested in how degradation of organic matter in the trench affects storage of contaminants in these extreme places.
In our research we combine theory and methods from various disciplines. We work in the field, perform experiments in the lab, develop methods for chemical analysis and use literature surveys and apply models.
