Nick Lomb

Honorary Professor, Centre for Astrophysics, University of Southern Queensland
I have had a variety of research directions over my career. During my PhD project on short period variable stars, I developed the theory of least squares frequency analysis for unequally spaced data. This is now a standard method of numerical analysis, called the Lomb or Lomb-Scargle Periodogram, that is used in astronomy and other fields.

Later at Sydney Observatory, the focus was on astrometry, that is, the positions and motions of stars and solar system objects. This work culminated in the publication of a star catalogue, of which I was co-author.

Then, when the Observatory came under the auspices of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, I became the Museum’s Curator of Astronomy. As such, I planned exhibitions and collected and looked after instruments and other items relating to astronomy. I was also involved with the media and with public education and outreach.

On leaving the Observatory and the Museum, my research emphasis became the history of Australian astronomy, with my latest book, with Toner Stevenson, 'Eclipse Chasers', to be released in March 2023. As well, I continue to prepare the annual Australasian Sky Guide for Powerhouse Publishing and maintain my interest in combatting light pollution.

Nick Mayhew

Lecturer in Russian, University of Glasgow
Before joining the University of Glasgow, I was a Lecturer in Russian at the University of Oxford (2021-2022) and an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer in Slavic Languages & Literatures at Stanford University (2018-2021). I received my PhD in Slavonic Studies at the University of Cambridge in 2018.

My research explores queer gender and sexuality in Russian, Ukrainian and Church Slavonic culture. As a gay man living in Moscow when Russia introduced its law against the "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations", I saw first-hand how culture, history and religion can be manipulated to fuel discrimination. My research is premised on telling queer counternarratives about Russian culture and especially religion, to shine light on a rich queer heritage too often obscured from scholarly perception.

I am particularly interested in bringing queerness to light in contexts that are usually deemed conservative and heteronormative, such as within the Orthodox Church. On the one hand, I am interested in thinking through how sexual minorities negotiate their relationships with cultural and religious traditions that have marginalised them, and on the other hand, I look at queerness inherent to the traditions themselves.

My publications focus mainly on the medieval and early modern periods, although I am moving increasingly into the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. I am also interested in the telling of cultural and historical narratives about gender and sexuality in the present, and in queerness in contemporary pop culture.

Nick Pepin

I am a climate scientist interested in mountain climates and how they may respond in a warmer world.

I graduated from the University of Durham in 1991 with a first class degree BSc in Geography. I went on to study in Durham for a PhD supervised by Joan Kenworthy and Nick Cox, investigating long-term climate change in the Pennines in Northern England using meteorological records, and was awarded the PhD in 1994.

In 1994 I started at the University of Portsmouth as lecturer in climatology/meteorology in the Department of Geography. In 1998 I was a visiting scientist for six months at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR), part of the University of Colorado at Boulder, USA. I studied long-term climate change in the instrumental records kept by the Mountain Research Station at high elevations in the Colorado Rockies. This work was sponsored by a Fulbright Scholarship.

In 2003/2004 I was awarded a National Academies National Science Foundation scholarship to visit NOAA’s Air Resources Laboratory in Silver Spring Maryland, U.S.A. for 12 months as a Senior Research Associate. My work as part of the Climate Variability and Trends Research Group under adviser Dr Dian Seidel, was concerned with the comparison of temperature trends from a variety of global datasets (surface, radiosonde and reanalyses). The focus was trends at high elevations sites, since mountain summits show some of the characteristics of both the free atmosphere and the Earth’s surface (boundary layer).

More recently I have developed work on Kilimanjaro, installing a transect of 22 stations which observe air temperature and humidity - on both the south-west and north-eastern slopes. The range in elevation from below 1000 m to 5800 m is amongst the largest in the world, making the site critical for examining elevation changes in warming rates (elevation-dependent warming). In 2015 I helped lead a paper examining mountain warming (https://www.nature.com/articles/nclimate2563). I also have current field projects in the Pyrenees and in Finnsh Lapland examining cold air drainage patterns and how they may change in a warmer world.

In 2018 I was a visiting scientist at the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing (PIFI scholarship) and have links with many Chinese researchers.

I am currently Reader in Climate Science in the newly-formed SEGG (School of Environment, Geography and Geosciences) and I am a senior member of the Environmental Processes and Change Research Group.

Research Interests
Global and regional temperature change in mountainous regions

Research concerns analysis of 20th/21st century temperature change in mountainous regions using a variety of primary and secondary datasets. Comparison of high quality homogenised climate datasets allows a comparison between free-atmospheric changes (measured by radiosonde and some satellite data and assimilated datasets such as reanalyses) and surface temperature changes (as measured by conventional instrumentation). Most recently work has compared MODIS LST (land surface temperature) data for mountainous areas with in situ air temperature data, with a particular focus on the Tibetan plateau.

This work has been undertaken in collaboration with many international organisations including the Climate Variability and Trends Group at the Air Resources Laboratory in Silver Spring, Maryland, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, San Diego, the University of Washington, Oregon State University, and the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research in Beijing, China. Funding has been obtained from Royal Society, National Academy of Sciences (U.S), Chinese Academy of Sciences, Fulbright Commission and Newton Fund.

Measuring and modelling surface temperatures in areas of complex relief

Part of the reason why mountains and areas of incised topography show varied environmental responses to climate change is because of their inherent spatial and temporal complexity. Members of staff at Portsmouth have been part of climate monitoring campaigns in mountains and complex terrain around the world, including the Rocky Mountains of the USA, Arctic Lapland (northern Finland and Sweden), the Pyrenees, the uplands of England and Scotland, and on Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa.

The focus has been on obtaining better information on the spatial and temporal variation in surface temperature and moisture fields using networks of meteorological sensors. This information allows us to relate temperature patterns to synoptic conditions, and thus to investigate the influence of landscape position on longer-term climate trends.

Work has been performed in collaboration with the following institutions:

University of Brunei Darussalam
University of Colorado Mountain Research Station
University of Turku Sub-Arctic Research Station
Abisko Scientific Research Station
University of Massachussetts
University of St Andrews
Centre for Ecology and Hydrology
Servei Meteorologic de Catalunya
Funding has been obtained from LAPBIAT 2, INTERACT, NERC and RCIF

The influence of land use change on mountain climate on Kilimanjaro and consequences for summit ice fields

Another emergent research strand is the response of the cryosphere (snow and ice) in mountain regions to contemporary climate change. This work involves a wide range of foci ranging from global analyses examining long term changes in snow cover in mountains and its influence on surface energy balance and mountain temperatures, to regional influences of atmospheric circulation on snow cover, and local field investigation into factors influencing snow distribution in the altitudinal and latitudinal forest-tundra ecotones (areas which are expected to show rapid environmental response to climate change).

In relation to this specific project, NERC funding has been obtained to monitor mountain climate on the slopes of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa. Through the installation of two unique climate transects on the SW and NE slopes of the mountain, covering a range of 5000 metres in elevation and extending back to 2004, this study can examine the day to day role of the diurnal thermal circulation in transporting moisture to and from the summit region. Typically, during the day moisture is transported upslope to the crater region, contributing indirectly (through cloud cover and increased humidity) or directly (through precipitation) to the mass balance of the summit ice fields. However these ice fields are in rapid retreat. The role of vegetation and land use change in this process is a focus of this project.

Funding has been obtained from NERC and RGS.

Nick Webb

Senior Lecturer in Architecture, University of Liverpool
Nick Webb is an architect and researcher based at the Liverpool School of Architecture. His research investigates how digital tools and techniques can be used as methods to enhance and critique our understanding of historic works of architecture. Nick’s research focuses on methods that enable new information to be provided that would have been almost impossible in a pre-digital context, including digital capture technologies such as laser scanning, three-dimensional digital modelling and analysis, and immersive virtual reality techniques. He is a registered architect and has previously worked in architectural practice, mainly community and social housing projects.

Nick’s research currently focusses on existing historic works of architecture, notably investigating the design and construction of English medieval vaulting aided by digital techniques in collaboration with Dr Alex Buchanan. The project, Tracing the Past, has analysed many significant sites in England including the cathedrals of Wells and Exeter, attracted funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, brought together international experts in vault design by hosting two symposiums, made their data available publicly via the Archaeology Data Service and Sketchfab, as well as organising a series of public talks and workshops to share their findings. The project resulted in a book, published by Routledge and co-authored alongside Dr Alex Buchanan and Dr James Hillson ‘Digital Analysis of Vaults in English Medieval Architecture.’

Nick is also interested in unbuilt, partially built and destroyed architecture, or designs that were not built at all. He previously researched Sir Edwin Lutyens’ partially built design for Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. He has also collaborated with Dr Zoe Alker to investigate Bentham’s unbuilt Panopticon Prison.

As a registered architect, Nick spends a large amount of time teaching design studio at the LSA. He has tutored in BA1 (2009-2014), ran a design studio in BA2 (2013-2018), and co-led a heritage related design studio alongside Dr Ataa Alsalloum in BA3 (2019-present). He was also year lead for BA2 between 2016-2018. Nick has been part of the BA Admissions Team since 2013 and has been the department’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Co-Champion since 2020.

Nicole Eggers

Assistant Professor of History, University of Tennessee
Nicole Eggers’ research interests include 20th-21st Century Congolese history, health and healing, refugees, and religion and politics in Central Africa. Her first book, Unruly Ideas: A History of Kitawala in Congo (Ohio University Press, 2023) follows the history of the influential religious movement Kitawala from its colonial beginnings in the 1920s to its present-day influence in some of the most conflicted parts of Eastern Congo. The study highlights practitioners of Kitawala as intellectuals and innovators and considers broad theoretical questions about how they have historically drawn on and reformulated practices of spiritual and social healing in times of upheaval, creating a historically situated framework for understanding how they and their communities have experienced and understood power and violence. In the process, the book engages a number of fields of inquiry: health and healing, violence and power, religion and rebellion, intersections of gender and power, colonial incarceration, prayer and spiritual agency, and nationalism and the post-colonial imagination.

Eggers’ second book, tentatively titled Refuge in the Spirit: Religion in the Lives of Congolese Refugees, is a collaborative project centered around oral histories of Congolese refugee communities. For this project, Eggers and her collaborator, Dr. Roger Alfani, are investigating the significance of religion at different junctures of the Congolese refugee experience. With funding from an NEH Collaborative Grant, they have conducted interviews among Congolese refugees living in refugee camps in Kenya, Uganda, and Burundi, as well as among those who have left the camps to be resettled in Knoxville. The project seeks to illuminate how religion has functioned both as a space for building community for people who have lost their social safety net, as well as its role in addressing gaps — material, social, psychological, and spiritual — that state and international organizations too often neglect. Central to their investigation is the question of how people connect their experiences of social and physical security and insecurity to their understandings of spiritual security and insecurity. They argue that in-depth study of the religious lives of refugees is inherently valuable as a form of social and intellectual history that illuminates the complex inner lives and communal connections of people who are frequently viewed exclusively through the lens of trauma and crisis.

In the classroom, Dr. Eggers is dedicated to teaching students how to ask evocative questions, think critically, and write effectively. One of her main goals is to teach students to reevaluate what they think they know about Africa and the study of history by introducing them to historical methods and narratives that highlight African experiences and voices. Dr. Eggers encourages active and creative student engagement with course themes and materials - both within and outside of the classroom - and strives to teach students that even when they are learning about places and peoples that are perhaps unfamiliar, they can learn to become critical consumers and producers of knowledge.
