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.

Simone Celine Marshall

Professor of Medieval Literature, University of Otago
My PhD from the University of Sydney focused on Middle English Literature by women. Since then, my interests have developed, so that more broadly, I research how our understanding of the world around us is directly shaped by texts: religious, scientific, literary, legal, historical, political. Within my research platform, I have six programmes of research: Medieval Race, Geoffrey Chaucer, Medievalisms, Medieval Women, Medieval Literary Anonymity, and Medieval Manuscripts. The programmes overlap and interconnect, but each seeks to bring to light a feature or characteristic of how texts shape our world.

Sinead Roberts

Lecturer Sport and Exercise Nutrition, University of Westminster
The acute and chronic response to exercise depends on a complex interplay between the training stimulus, physiology, nutritional state, genetics, and environment. My research interests focus on metabolic and physiological responses to multi-modal concurrent training, namely in Functional Fitness, and how these factors impact performance potential in elite athletes, as well as health and longevity in the general population.

As a performance nutritionist, I look to practically influence acute and chronic responses to training through diet and supplementation. Athletes I have supported include international level weightlifters, British Title level boxers, World Title level BJJ competitors, and elite CrossFit athletes.

I now bring together my passion for science, coaching and education as a Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Nutrition at the University of Westminster.

My background is in cell growth and metabolism, with a PhD investigating growth factor regulation of the addition of cell mass and volume. It was here I developed a keen interest in understanding how cells respond to stress and physiological extremes. This ultimately led to my passion for understanding the acute and chronic response to exercise stress, and how we can manipulate this to maximise an adaptive outcome (and avoid a maladaptive outcome).

Sion Coulman

Senior Lecturer at the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Cardiff University
I have worked with microneedle devices since 2002, exploring their potential as a minimally invasive method for trans- and intra-dermal delivery of both novel and established active pharmaceutical ingredients, including a range of biologics and vaccines. I have a particular focus on, and passion for, translating the technology from laboratory prototypes to clinically useful and commercially available products. I have contributed to a range of projects and have considerable technical experience in the evaluation of intra- and trans-dermal delivery systems both ex vivo and in vivo. My expertise and publications include the use of innovative methods to evaluate human skin biomechanics, tissue architecture and local immunology, as well as user studies. I am a co-founder of Extraject technologies, a spin out from Cardiff University, which aims to commercialise minimally invasive systems for cell-based therapy in the skin, and am co-Chair of a Working Group (Microneedle Array Patch - Regulatory Working Group; MAP-RWG), which was initiated in 2018 to help define the regulatory pathway for this dosage form and expedite clinical translation of the technology.

I also work closely with major international Pharma to evaluate the performance of established and innovative capsule products to be used in capsule-based dry powder inhalers (DPIs). I helped develop an in vitro testing methodology for capsules that has been, and continues to be, used by the pharmaceutical industry for product development and quality assurance. My aim is to understand and improve the performance of DPIs both in the laboratory and in the hands of the user.

My third area of interest is 3D bio-printing and, more specifically, the development of a skin model using an affordable and commercially available 3D bio-printing platform. This highly innovative area of research has stimulated significant scientific and public interest, which has facilitated a number of engagement opportunities.

I also have a pedagogic interest in numeracy and medicines-based calculations, with a particular focus on the education of pharmacy students and pharmacists in this area. I have developed a contextualized diagnostic numeracy test that has been used at a number UK Schools of Pharmacy and have contributed to activities that have directly informed the education and training of pharmacy and medical students.

Siyi Kan

Research Fellow in Emission and Trade Analysis, UCL
Socioeconomic activities are driving forces of environmental problems. In the context of globalisation, our daily life, whether related to diet, housing, energy use or other basic services, not only has local effects, but can also significantly influence the development and environment of distant regions through global supply chains. Therefore, my research focuses on the impacts of socioeconomic factors (e.g., international trade, consumption, bioenergy policy, urbanization, poverty eradication) on local and global environment (e.g., land use and land cover change (LULCC), carbon emissions and biodiversity loss) from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Slah Boulila

Associate lecturer, Sorbonne Université
I am Geologist at Sorbonne University (Paris, France). I am interested in cyclic climate and oceanic processes encoded in past (paleo) sedimentary records.
I acquire and use high-resolution geophysical and geochemical data from the sedimentary records (either from outcrops or from subsurface-drilling programs) to address three multidisciplinary, interrelated topics: (1) astronomical calibration of the Cenozoic and Mesozoic time scales, (2) the role of orbitally controlled climate and sea-level changes in the hierarchy of sedimentary sequences, and (3) to which extent the sedimentary record could provide constraints on astronomical modeling. In this latter topic, I am interested in two subjects: (a) constrain tidal-dissipation parameters (and dynamic ellipticity of the Earth) by calculation of the precession frequency (constant, p) from well-preserved sedimentary cycles, and (b) mapping the expression of Myr- to multi-Myr-long astronomical cyclicities in the Cenozoic and Mesozoic strata, esp. their implication for the chaotic behavior of the inner solar system, expressed in these long orbital periodicities as resonant angles.

Smith Ouma

Postdoctoral research fellow, University of Manchester
I am currently a Leverhulme early career researcher at the Global Development Institute. Prior to this role, I was a post-doctoral research fellow with the FCDO-funded African Cities Research Consortium.

With a background in law, my research is inherently interdisciplinary, spanning legal geography, urban politics, urban health, and development studies.

My primary focus lies in understanding the political economy of informal settlements and systems failings in cities, particularly in Africa. As part of this interest, I have engaged with multiple actors to understand how power is performed and how interests emerge and compete in informal settlements contexts. I also look at the everyday practices of marginalised urban residents to understand how agency is exercised, and the different strategies and tools that are employed to realise rights in the city. Additionally, I have strong research and professional interest in the field of land law.
