Simon Greenhill

Associate Professor, University of Auckland
I research why and how people created all the amazing languages around us, and what they tell us about human prehistory.

I use (mainly) Bayesian phylogenetic methods to tackle these questions and have investigated everything from how the Austronesian peoples settled the Pacific, to modelling the co-evolution of linguistic structure. And I have built a number of large-scale databases to help answer these questions.

Simon Griffith

Professor of Avian Behavioural Ecology, Macquarie University
I am an evolutionary biologist and have spent most of my career to date investigating how the reproductive behaviour of birds drives the process of speciation and the amazing diversity of birds that we hear and see around us.

Reproductive behaviour can be broken down into many components, such as: the expression of ornaments like colourful plumage; the process of choosing a social partner to breed with; how many offspring to have; how many sons or daughters to have; how much investment you make in current or future offspring. All of these decisions affect the quality of the resulting offspring. It is the variation in quality amongst individuals in a population that the process of natural selection acts upon. The best quality individuals are likely to be more attractive, live longer and produce more offspring than individuals or lower quality. Over generations, the population will change as a result of this non-random selection and eventually a new species is born.

Birds have provided a disproportionate level of insight into evolutionary biology over the past hundred years because they are well surveyed, well understood and highly amenable to morphological and behavioural research. Developing a better knowledge of avian reproductive behaviour increases our capacity to conserve biodiversity and understand ourselves, because most birds share the same socially monogamous mating system as humans – a system that is actually very rare among other mammals.

Simon Williams

I was born in Germany while my father was on sabbatical there, but grew up in Melbourne and then Adelaide, where I did my undergraduate studies in Mathematical Physics and Pure Mathematics.

I went to Oxford to do graduate study with Roger Penrose on general relativity and conformal field theory (although both of these reduce to differential equations if you stare at them hard enough!)

Since my return to Australia I've lectured at Adelaide University, worked as a radar signal processor at DSTO, and bayesian analyst at CSIRO before joining CSEM to work on iterative optimisation of parametric bayesian models for medical image analysis.

Since then I have also found fun people to work on mathematical models of high-rate algal ponds and lithium polymer batteries.

Simon Esmonde Cleary

Emeritus Professor of Roman Archaeology, University of Birmingham
I am a specialist in Roman archaeology with interests centring on Roman Britain and on Roman France Germany and Spain and Portugal, with a particular interest in Late Antiquity.

My main research interests lie in the archaeology of the Roman period, more particularly in the western provinces. Though covering all Roman the period, my principal focus is on the period of Late Antiquity (ca. A.D.300-700). My current research concerns the transition from Roman to post-Roman over much of the western part of the empire, both as regards the nature of the archaeological record and as regards the changes in economy society, religion and mentalities which that record embodies and has resulted in a substantial monograph ‘The Roman West AD 200-500: an archaeological study’ published in 2013. Also published in 2013 was my book 'Chedworth: life ina Roman villa', arising our of my long-term collaboration with The National Trust on the re-display and re-interpretation of the well-know Romano-British villa at Chedworth in the Cotswolds near Cirencester.I have previously worked and published on the Roman period in Britain, again with an emphasis on the later Roman period and the Roman to post-Roman transition. I also have a particular interest in urban archaeology both as a sub-discipline within field archaeology and as an approach to understanding the distinctiveness of towns and of urbanised societies, and collaborated with my colleagues Ray Laurence and Gareth Sears in writing a major work ‘The City in the Roman West c.250 BC – AD 250’ (2011). In addition I have an interest in Roman period numismatics, particularly the identification and interpretation of site-finds.

Professor Thrush obtained a BSc (Hons) from the University of Otago and a PhD from the University of East Anglia, England. He has over 30 years’ experience in the development and implementation of strategic ecological research to influence resource management and improve societal valuation of marine ecosystems.

Simon J. Murphy

Senior Lecturer, Astrophysics, University of Southern Queensland
I am an ARC Future Fellow and Senior Lecturer at the University of Southern Queensland. I study stellar pulsations detected in data from NASA’s Kepler and TESS missions, and use those pulsations to make inferences about the stars. I use stellar pulsations as clocks, to track the stars’ orbital motions through space and discover new binary systems in a parameter space inaccessible to other techniques. This provides clues on how binary stars form. I also use the pulsations to make inferences on stellar structure, including precise measurements of stellar ages and metallicities. With these, we can recalibrate the ages of the stars by determining the ages of the clusters and associations in which they reside. I graduated from the University of Manchester with a BSc (Hons) in 2010, completed my PhD at the University of Central Lancashire in 2013, and held multiple postdoc positions at the University of Sydney, including as an ARC DECRA fellow, until I moved to UniSQ in 2022.
