Dr. Vishwanath studies the “people problem” of cyber security.
His research focuses on improving individual, organizational, and national resilience to cyber attacks by focusing on the weakest links in cyber security—all of us Internet users.
His particular interest is in understanding why organizational insiders willingly exfiltrate sensitive organizational data; why people become unintentional insiders by falling prey to social engineering attacks that come-in through email and social media; and on ways we can harness this understanding to secure cyber space. He also examines how various groups–-criminal syndicates, terrorist networks, hacktivists–-utilize cyber space to commit crime, spread mis-information, recruit operatives, and radicalize others.
Dr. Vishwanath’s research on improving cyber resilience against online social engineering has been funded by the National Science Foundation. He has written and published over two-dozen articles on technology users and cyber security issues and my research has been presented to principals at national security and law enforcement agencies around the world. His research has also been featured on CNN, USA Today, Bloomberg Business Week, Consumer Reports and hundreds of other national and international news outlets.

Professor of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of California, San Diego
Dr. Gustafsson is interested in understanding the molecular pathways that regulate the life and death of cardiac myocytes. The occurrence of cardiovascular disease increases with advancing age and intrinsic alterations in aging cardiac myocytes are a major contributor to the underlying pathogenesis. In particular, a decline in mitochondrial function is considered to play a key role in the increased susceptibility to disease. In the heart, the primary function of mitochondria is to meet the high energy demand of the beating myocytes by providing ATP through oxidative phosphorylation. Mitochondrial dysfunction and activation of cell death pathways are common occurrences in cardiovascular disease and contributes to the development of heart failure. Dr. Gustafsson uses genetic, cell and molecular biology approaches, mouse models, and cutting-edge 2D/3D imaging techniques to study the signaling pathways involved in regulating mitochondrial structure, function, and turnover in cells and heart. Specifically, Dr. Gustafsson's research is examining how the E3 ubiquitin ligase Parkin regulates removal of dysfunctional mitochondria in cells; and b) determining the molecular mechanisms by which BCL-2 family proteins regulate mitochondrial function, morphology and turnover in cells.

Post-doctoral researcher, University of Notre Dame
I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Environmental Change Initiative, University of Notre Dame working with Dr. Joe Fernando and Dr. Alan Hamlet. I received my Ph.D in regional climate modeling from Arizona State University in 2012 working with Dr. Huei-Ping Huang.
My research interests lie in atmospheric sciences and land/ocean-atmosphere interactions at a range of spatial scales (regional to local) that are relevant to the management of human and natural systems. My aim is to create a new generation of high-resolution climate models capable of resolving relatively small-scale processes and impacts in a sufficiently physically based way that they can be used for future climate predictions with increased confidence. I perform targeted dynamical downscaling experiments with the overarching goal of creating "bridges" between global, regional and micro-scale modeling.
Regional climate modeling: Land/ocean/lake-atmosphere interactions, lake breeze, UHI effect, land data assimilation, hydrometeorological extremes
Microscale modeling: Climate modeling at hyper-local scales (~m scales)
Climate adaptation and mitigation: Interactions between urban ecology and urban heat island in a changing climate

Visiting Fellow in International Climate Governance, Columbia University
Mr Husain-Naviatti is a Visiting Fellow at Columbia University in the City of New York and Writer on international climate governance. He has over 25 years of international experience at the UN and World Bank on sustainable development in multiple field and development contexts. He was educated at Oxford (Musicology) and Columbia Universities (Economic Policy Management)
He is an expert on multilateral governance in highly politicised development contexts, with particular interest in reconciling conflicting development and political objectives. He has high-level strategic and diplomatic experience in the UN as an intergovernmental convener, negotiator and relationship builder, and as a multilateral and interagency coordinator between UN member states, civil society, private sector and other institutions, on a broad range of sustainable development issues, led by governments.
His previous career highlights include appointment as Secretary of the Advisory Commission on UNRWA (a Commission of the UN General Assembly), and Head of Secretariat for eight years. This was a senior management role at the heart of the Middle East conflict situation. He was noted for guiding divergently opposing viewpoints towards consensus on strategic, policy, operational and financial issues in a politicised and volatile context. He was previously appointed Senior Adviser to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan on AIDS in the Executive Office of the Secretary-General, United Nations. This was the Secretary-General’s legacy issue, at a noted time of sea change in the international fight against AIDS, much being attributed to the Secretary-General’s leadership and Call to Action under Mr Husain-Naviatti’s management and coordination.
His experience on climate change includes sustainable forestry in Latin America, coastal zone damage mitigation in the Pacific (an economic perspective linking with social challenges), water resources management in the Middle East (riparian agreements with peace and stability connotations) and a range of interagency climate change, environmental management and disaster response issues in the Philippines. He is also an International LEAD Fellow on Sustainable Development, which incorporated leadership training on climate governance and green energy.
He currently holds select directorships including Barboteca Corporation on sustainable forestry in Central America, and is Chair of Directors of the Mylnhurst Group including the highest-achieving independent Preparatory School in the region, according to the Sunday Times ranking.
