Shane O'Rourke

Senior Lecturer in Modern History, University of York
Shane O’Rourke began his career as a historian of Imperial and Soviet Russia, looking at the history of the Cossacks in particular. He has produced two books on the Cossacks and numerous articles, covering the Cossacks from Muscovite times into the post-Soviet period.

Over the past four years he has began to develop an interest in the history of Brazil and is now engaged on a major research project comparing the emancipation of the serfs in Russia in 1861 and the slaves in Brazil in 1888. Brazil is also figuring increasingly in his teaching and Shane now offers courses on Brazilian as well as Russian history.

Shane’s research interests have changed sharply over the past four years. From being a social historian of Russia, he has now broadened his interests to become a historian of Brazil. His work at the moment is writing a comparison of the emancipation of servile labour in both countries in the second half of the nineteenth century. This will be the first work to compare explicitly Brazil and Russia. As part of this project, he is working on two royal women, Grand Duchess Elena Pavlovna and Princess Isabel of Brazil, and their role in the emancipation of servile labour. An article on Grand Duchess Elena Pavlovna will be published in Autumn 2011 in The Russian Review.

At The Huntington, she is researching her second book, studying the history of women’s reproductive bodies by comparing early modern medical texts’ depictions of childbearing, pregnancy loss, birth, and nursing with those found in poetry by men and women from Italy and France. Her research has taken her to places ranging from the Vatican Secret Archives to the Walt Disney Imagineering Library.

Shannon Murray

Research assistant at the Substance Use Research Group and PhD Candidate, University of South Wales
I am currently a doctoral student at Cardiff University conducting research into young gay and bisexual men's experiences of IPV and a research assistant within the Substance Use Research Group (SURG) at USW. We are working on a number of projects such as the evaluation of the Gwent heroin and crack cocaine action area, lessons from COVID-19 on substance use service provision, the impact of minimum pricing for alcohol on drinkers and their families in Wales and substance use and related behaviours among university students as part of the Higher Education Alcohol and Drugs (HEADS) programme.

I was awarded funding in 2021/22 in collaboration with Professor Katy Holloway, Dr Marian Buhociu and Visiting Professor Rhian Hills (Senior Drug Policy Manager for Welsh Government) from USW's Knowledge Exchange and Innovation Fund (KEIF) to undertake a feasibility study that focuses on substance use among LGBTQ+ communities.

Our research project focused exclusively on LGBTQ+ communities and sought to understand why some people in these groups use drugs and/or alcohol and why there is an underrepresentation of these groups within drug and alcohol services. It is important to understand the experiences of people from within the LGBTQ+ groups and to provide them with a voice, as they are at a greater risk of hazardous alcohol and drug use than heterosexual cis-gendered men and women.

From the findings of this important research, a staff toolkit was co-created for substance use services in the UK alongside staff from GDAS, using the responses obtained from participants. This is now being used by staff throughout GDAS' various locations in Wales.

I am really interested in making collaborative relationships and co-produced research. My research focus relates mainly to harm reduction and exploring stereotypes around hidden victims of domestic abuse (mainly LGBTQ+ and male victim/survivors) with the view of making real change in support services in the UK.

Shannon Roberts

Associate Professor of Industrial Engineering, UMass Amherst
Shannon Roberts is a trained Human Factors engineer with expertise in studying and evaluating the interaction between humans and systems within the domain of transportation safety. Much of her work is conducted with human participants in the Human Performance Laboratory’s driving simulator. Broadly speaking, her research is focused on three areas: studying and improving young drivers’ behavior, developing feedback and warning systems to improve driving behavior, and examining how advanced technology (e.g., driving automation systems) alters driver behavior. Her recent work examines how demographic variables (e.g., socioeconomic status) affect teenage drivers and how novel social influence techniques can be used to decrease their involvement in traffic crashes.

Shannon Roberts is studying teenage driving behaviors to determine what differences exist according to socioeconomic status (SES). She is developing and testing an intervention designed to improve teenage driving and use social peer influence to reinforce learning. One objective is to mitigate the health disparity between high and low SES teenagers by reducing crash risks and fatalities.

Shannon Rutherford

Associate Professor, Public Health, Griffith University
With a background in environmental science, my career has focussed on researching the links between environmental change and human health and building capacity to understand and respond at local, national and global levels. I have been involved in research to solve public health problems, from pandemic risk communication in China, mosquito-borne diseases in Kenya and Bangladesh, coastal salinity and hypertension in Bangladesh, to disasters and climate change governance in China, Philippines and Indonesia.

My leadership and expertise in climate and health has developed from working with WHO on climate and water, teaching climate and health content into university postgraduate and short courses (Bangladesh and Pakistan), master supervision (food security and climate, heat and health adaptation policy in India, hope and climate action in young Australians, digital uptake in heat sensitive populations of Australia) and HDR supervision (flood vulnerability in China, climate and infectious disease in Vietnam, climate and dengue fever in Bangladesh, climate-health adaptation policy in the Philippines, heat and worker health in garment factory workers, heat and early warning systems in older people). I lead the Climate and Health Collective, a Griffith group of multi-disciplinary researchers committed to collaboration to solve climate and health problems. This collective has led to large external research grants, WHO projects and numerous health related Climate Action Beacon projects.

My research achievements are founded on quality HDR supervision, an extensive publication track record and a collaborative research leadership approach. I am committed to leading transdisciplinary research that improves the health of communities, focussing on climate and health impact and risk management research that aligns with Griffith’s Strategic Plan 2020-2025 high level goal of ‘providing research solutions to humankind’s greatest challenges’.

I currently teach into Griffith’s Master of Public Health and Master of Global Public Health programs producing public health professions capable of addressing the many complex and diverse current and emerging health issues that we face as a global community.
