Rob Branston

Senior Lecturer in Business Economics, University of Bath
My primary research interests surround the governance and regulation of organisations, with a particular focus on the provision of public utilities and other key sectors, most notably the global tobacco industry. I have researched the conduct, performance, and market impact of transnational companies, and appropriate regulatory measures that might be applied to such companies in order to secure the public interest. More recently I have developed an interest in the conduct and performance of micro-firms, especially in the area of regulation.

I have worked with and have been funded by Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), The Irish Cancer Society, The Irish Heart Foundaction, The Royal Economics society, the National Insitute for Health Research, and Cancer Research UK. I have shared my expertise with the Houses of Parliament, HM Treasury, and the Department for Health in the UK, and the Ministry of Finance in the Republic of Ireland, and I and my work have been featured in various national media outlets.

Rob Evans

Professor in science and technology studies, Cardiff University
My academic home is in the field of Science and Technology Studies, and my interests are in the nature and use of expertise. This translates into questions about the sorts of knowledge needed to make decisions, who possesses it, and how it is shared and acted upon.

Within STS, my work has played a central role in founding what has been called 'Studies of Expertise and Experience' or the 'Third Wave of Science Studies.' The characteristic features of this approach are a more 'realist' approach to expertise that emphasises the role of tacit knowledge and the development of a more explicitly normative approach through which STS scholars can contribute to technological decision-making in the public domain.

Robbee Wedow

Assistant Professor of Sociology and Data Science, Purdue University
I'm an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Data Science at Purdue University, with lots of other connections that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of my research. I am also an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Medical and Molecular Genetics at Indiana University School of Medicine. Before coming to Purdue, I did my PhD at the University of Colorado Boulder and my postdoc at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. My main research interest is in sociogenomics, which lies at the intersection of sociology, demography, and statistical & computational genetics. I am interested in how social forces and environments interact with genetics (gene-by-environment interactions). Using recent advances in genetic data collection and methodological developments in statistical genetics, I leverage large-scale genetic data to explore how sociological outcomes change across context, across time, and across outcome measurement. I am also deeply dedicated to clearly and sensitively communicating the findings from my work in an ethically-engaged and community-based fashion. My work outside of social science genetics focuses on population health, health disparities, and quasi-experimental designs and methodologies. ​

Robbie Sutton

Professor of Social Psychology, University of Kent
Robbie is interested in the social psychology of justice and (in)equality, including:

Just-world beliefs
These refer to the extent to which people believe they, and others, receive the treatment and life outcomes they deserve. These are related to psychological health, functioning, and a raft of social attitudes (for more information, see Hafer & Sutton, 2014; Sutton & Douglas, 2005; Sutton & Winnard, 2007; Sutton et al., 2008; Wu et al., 2013 in the publication list).
Conspiracy beliefs
Robbie collaborates with Professor Karen Douglas on conspiracy belief (see Douglas & Sutton, 2008, 2011, Sutton & Douglas, 2014. Their work examines the psychological mechanisms that cause people to entertain such beliefs.
Immanent justice reasoning
Robbie collaborates with Mitch Callan (University of Essex) on why people tend to perceive that a person's misfortune must be attributable to some prior misdeed of theirs, even when the two cannot be related (Callan et al., 2010, 2013, 2014).
Gender, sexism and inequality
Robbie has studied several aspects of gender inequality, including gendered fear of crime (Sutton & Farrall, 2005, 2008; Sutton, Robinson & Farrall, 2011), sexist intrusions on the autonomy of women during pregnancy (Murphy et al., 2011; Sutton, Douglas, & McClellan, 2011), and gender inequality in educational attainment (Hartley & Sutton, 2013).
He is interested in social communicative approaches to these and other questions, such as intergroup relations (e.g., Douglas & Sutton, 2003, 2010; Sutton, Elder & Douglas, 2006). A related interest is in environmental psychology.

Robbin Mellen Jr.

Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of South Florida
My teaching and research interests revolve around the presidency and the interaction between the executive branch, legislative branch, and the judiciary. I focus most closely on the president and their activities, especially during midterm elections. I have published multiple articles focused on what presidents do during the midterms and how effective their efforts are. I also examine the collaboration and conflict between the branches that either leads to or precludes effective government. I am a big fan of the late Richard Neustadt and his theory of presidential power, which exists in the ability to persuade according to him. The reliance on command authority is a sign of a failure to lead effectively.

Robert Attenborough

Honorary Senior Lecturer in Bioanthropology, Australian National University
Papua New Guinea has been the focus of most of my recent research on health, nutrition and demography. This has been both at the level of nationwide and historical reviews, and of local research with Dr Don Gardner amongst the Mianmin of the highlands fringes of Sandaun (West Sepik) Province, where life expectancy is short, and health and child growth are generally poor, but where these also vary with local variation in altitude and ecology.

In a different kind of human biological research project (also ARC-funded), I have recently focused with Prof Simon Easteal and others on the anthropological genetics of Papua New Guinea. In this project we are exploring genetic variation in both the female and male lines for clues as to the long-range histories of Papuan-speaking populations: questions include how the island of New Guinea was originally populated; whether genetic variation correlates with linguistic variation; and whether particular population groups may have expanded with the expansion of language families agricultural practices.

In earlier research I studied population processes, ecology and nutrition in Zangskar valley, Jammu and Kashmir Province, northern India.

Robert Caudle

Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Neuroscience Division, University of Florida

My research focuses on the molecular and physiological processes that initiate and maintain chronic pain. In particular, we are examining alterations in the function of the N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) class of excitatory amino acid receptor in the spinal cord and the vanilloid receptor – the protein responsible for detecting the burning sensation produced by hot chili peppers – in the periphery following persistent stimulation. The NMDA receptor performs the function of an amplifier in the spinal cord to enhance pain signals, whereas the vanilloid receptor detects pain from heat, inflammation, and chemicals throughout the body. These studies examine changes in the phosphorylation status of these two receptors and alterations in subunits and splice variants as a result of painful experiences. These studies also examine the interaction of the NMDA receptor and vanilloid receptor with endogenous neuropeptides that are released during chronic pain. The ultimate goal of our work is to develop novel strategies to avoid the induction of chronic pain and new therapies to treat chronic pain once it is established.
