Renée M Prokopavicius

Postdoctoral Researcher in Plant Ecophysiology, Western Sydney University
Dr Renée Marchin Prokopavicius’ research aims to improve predictions of the effects of climate change on terrestrial and urban ecosystems. Two global changes that affect plant productivity are increasing temperature and drought. She primarily use ecophysiological approaches to understand how plant traits determine which species or genotypes succeed in changing environments. Her research has focused on plant functional traits related to water relations and growth, such as phenology, stomatal conductance, and photosynthesis. She has worked in a diverse range of terrestrial ecosystems, from temperate forests to subalpine grasslands, and from agricultural cropping systems to urban forests.

Reuben Larbi

Research Fellow in Health Determinants of Research Collaboration, Lancaster University
I am a Research Fellow at Lancaster University working with Blackpool Council on a National Institute of Health and Care Research (NIHR) Health Determinants Research Collaboration (HDRC). The purpose is to help enable local authorities to become more research-active and to make evidence-informed decisions by undertaking research and evaluation relating to their activities, including synthesising and mobilising existing evidence. My research focus is socio-ecological determinants of health and wellbeing, particularly in low-income urban settings. I am passionate about addressing the unjust deprivations and socio-economic conditions under which people live, grow and work, and the consequent inequalities in health and wellbeing. I have experience assessing vulnerability of the urban population to climatic and other environmental hazards and implementing feasible adaptation measures in different ecological contexts. My research approach involves multidisciplinary methods that combine qualitative and quantitative techniques with spatial analyses

Reuben Nowell

Lecturer in Animal Evolutionary Biology, University of Stirling
I am an evolutionary biologist with broad interests in the interaction between genome structure and the processes of adaptation, diversification and speciation in non-model eukaryotes. I work with whole-genome sequence data in conjunction with population genomic and comparative phylogenetic methods to provide insights into how these mechanisms contribute to the evolutionary process. I am particularly interested in the interaction between ecology, life-history and genome structure, the impact of extraordinary molecular mechanisms such as horizontal gene transfer, and the insights to be gained from the genomic peculiarities of non-model organisms.

I have a hat-trick of degrees from the University of Edinburgh, with a BSc (Hons) in Evolutionary Biology (2008), then an MSc in Quantitative Genetics and Genome Analysis (2010) before getting my PhD in 2015. I then completed 2 postdocs with Prof Tim Barraclough and Dr Chris Wilson at Imperial College London (and later Oxford) working on a group of enigmatic and unusual animals called bdelloid rotifers, before moving to Stirling in early 2024. Happily, I am still scratching my head trying to understand bdelloid genomes.

Rhys Jones1

Professor of Human Geography, Aberystwyth University
My work lies at the intersection between political, historical and cultural geography and focuses in particular on the various geographies of the state and its related group identities. I have addressed the geographies of the state in a variety of contexts, ranging from the various organisational, territorial and cultural changes associated with the state-making process in medieval Wales to the more contemporary processes of territorial and functional restructuring affecting the UK state. My work on these themes has appeared in a variety of different journal articles as well as a monograph - People/States/Territories - published by Blackwell as part of the RGS-IBG Book Series.

I have also examined the geographies of group identity in a number of different contexts. Work here includes my research on the emergence of ethnic identities in medieval Wales and my more current research on the geographies of Welsh identity in the late twentieth century. This latter work has recently appeared in a book entitled Placing the Nation (with Carwyn Fowler). My research, to date, has been supported by funding from the ESRC, the AHRC, the Leverhulme Trust, the British Academy and the University of Wales' Board of Celtic Studies.

I teach on a number of these research themes at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Most of teaching is done through the medium of Welsh but I also teach on some English-medium modules in the field of political geography. I have also sought to consolidate my competence in teaching through publishing a textbook entitled An Introduction to Political Geography (with Martin Jones and Mike Woods). My competence in teaching was confirmed when I received an Aberystwyth University Award for Teaching Excellence in 2005.

Richard Ballard

Chief Researcher: Gauteng City-Region Observatory, Wits University and University of Johannesburg, University of the Witwatersrand
Richard Ballard trained in the field of geography at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and the University of Wales, Swansea.

One of his research themes is on the relationship between the ideals of spatial transformation and real world processes that produce urban space. Under this theme he has published on attempts by developers to secure permission to build major projects; the policy turn to mega projects within the public housing sector; the role of construction labour in producing walled suburbs and the production of space in Gauteng Province.

A second area of interest is the way in which residents of South Africa's cities form identities in relation to the places where they live and the people who share these spaces. Publications on this theme are on white responses to urban desegregation, gated communities, the place of plants and animals in cities, social cohesion and changing scales of identification.

A third area of interest is urban governance and politics, with publications on local government elections, participatory governance processes, social movements and everyday resistance.
