He has also more recently (2013) been a visiting researcher at Makerere University Business School in Uganda, investigating large scale successful portfolio entrepreneurs in addition to work with the STEP family business consortium. In 2014 he was invited to the London School of Economics (LSE) Africa summit as an academic advisory panel member.

During his PhD Antonio worked for a year with Edinburgh Universities Student business Incubator. He has also conducted consultancy projects in Southern Africa and has worked at a prominent New York, Venture Capital Fund. Antonio was an accomplished amateur water polo player before injury put an end to his playing career in 2011/2012.

He is a keen golfer, angler and a live sports enthusiast

Dr Malfense Fierro is particularly interested in the role of large scale (or portfolio entrepreneurship) in economic development in Africa and elsewhere. This underlines a broad interest in African business and entrepreneurship which he teaches at undergraduate and postgraduate level. More specifically, he is fascinated by the relationship between risk and entrepreneurship and how risk is managed over time by entrepreneurs in different environments.

Antonio is currently assessing existing measures of ‘entrepreneurial environments’ and their practical applicability and relevance to entrepreneurs and policy-makers. He is also investigating the role of portfolio entrepreneurship in African economic growth and development. Other interests, include the growth processes of entrepreneurial business groups in rapidly, developing and growing markets and other interests in family business and venture capital.

His interests and capabilities also extend to undertaking business opportunity assessments and information gathering that is focused on different industries and markets within African countries, or in environments where the gathering or accessing such information is severely challenging.

Arend Hintze

At the Hintzelab we are researching the evolution of natural and artificial intelligence. We use computational modeling to understand what environments and evolutionary pressures give rise to intelligence, and how cognitive mechanisms evolved. At the same time we want to bring about Artificial Intelligence by the means of evolution. The idea is that conventional approaches in software design will ultimately be limited to our understanding of the human brain, and we simply don’t want to wait until cognitive- and neuro-science figured “it” out, but instead use the one process that already made cognitive entities: evolution!

Arin Keeble

Arin Keeble's research focuses on the way contemporary literature and culture represents and responds to terrorism, crisis and disaster. Under this umbrella he is working in three distinct areas: the '9/11 novel', narratives of Hurricane Katrina and contemporary American television (particularly David Simon and TV audiences in the UK). He currently has significant projects underway in each of these areas.

The '9/11 Novel' – Dr Keeble's work in this area has sought to move beyond a polarised critical paradigm that has pitted domestic narratives of trauma in opposition to more outwardly facing political narratives. This was the subject of Dr Keeble's doctoral research, and he has published three peer reviewed articles in Modern Language Review, Reconstruction and European Journal of American Culture in this area. Additionally, his monograph, The 9/11 Novel: Trauma, Politics and Identity was published by McFarland in 2014. His most current work in this area is an article on Thomas Pynchon's Bleeding Edge (2013) entitled 'Before and After in Bleeding Edge', which is under review.

Narratives of Hurricane Katrina – Dr Keeble's work on Katrina focusses on the ways in which literary, cinematic and televisual narratives of Katrina respond not just to the Katrina crisis, but also to the politics of the War on Terror, and to the perceived apolitical nature of many early narratives of 9/11. Dr Keeble's first publication in this area was 'The Aggregation of Politics in Dave Eggers Zeitoun' which appeared in the peer reviewed Journal of Comparative American Studies (13.3). Dr Keeble has also guest edited a special issue of European Journal of American Cultures which comes out later this year, and includes his article on David Simon's television series Treme (2009-2013) 'Won't Bow, Don't Know How: Treme, and New Orleans Exceptionalism'. Additionally Dr Keeble is working on a new monograph on Katrina narratives which will appear in 2017.

American Television – Dr Keeble's first published work in this area was a co-edited collection of essays with Dr Ivan Stacy (Hong Kong Baptist University) on David Simon's The Wire (2002-2008) which appeared in 2015, The Wire and America's Dark Corners: Critical Essays. Dr Stacy and Dr Keeble have continued to collaborate on the subject of David Simon's television; their co-guest edited special issue of European Journal of American Cultures features eight new essays on Simon. Dr Keeble's interest in US television extends to the way it is received by UK audiences and he is developing an audience studies partnership project with a colleague at Durham University and two major UK cultural cinemas.

Arun Vishwanath

Dr. Vishwanath studies the “people problem” of cyber security.

His research focuses on improving individual, organizational, and national resilience to cyber attacks by focusing on the weakest links in cyber security—all of us Internet users.

His particular interest is in understanding why organizational insiders willingly exfiltrate sensitive organizational data; why people become unintentional insiders by falling prey to social engineering attacks that come-in through email and social media; and on ways we can harness this understanding to secure cyber space. He also examines how various groups–-criminal syndicates, terrorist networks, hacktivists–-utilize cyber space to commit crime, spread mis-information, recruit operatives, and radicalize others.

Dr. Vishwanath’s research on improving cyber resilience against online social engineering has been funded by the National Science Foundation. He has written and published over two-dozen articles on technology users and cyber security issues and my research has been presented to principals at national security and law enforcement agencies around the world. His research has also been featured on CNN, USA Today, Bloomberg Business Week, Consumer Reports and hundreds of other national and international news outlets.

Ashish Sharma

Post-doctoral researcher, University of Notre Dame

I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Environmental Change Initiative, University of Notre Dame working with Dr. Joe Fernando and Dr. Alan Hamlet. I received my Ph.D in regional climate modeling from Arizona State University in 2012 working with Dr. Huei-Ping Huang.

My research interests lie in atmospheric sciences and land/ocean-atmosphere interactions at a range of spatial scales (regional to local) that are relevant to the management of human and natural systems. My aim is to create a new generation of high-resolution climate models capable of resolving relatively small-scale processes and impacts in a sufficiently physically based way that they can be used for future climate predictions with increased confidence. I perform targeted dynamical downscaling experiments with the overarching goal of creating "bridges" between global, regional and micro-scale modeling.

Research Interests:

Regional climate modeling: Land/ocean/lake-atmosphere interactions, lake breeze, UHI effect, land data assimilation, hydrometeorological extremes

Microscale modeling: Climate modeling at hyper-local scales (~m scales)

Climate adaptation and mitigation: Interactions between urban ecology and urban heat island in a changing climate

Belinda Winder

I set up the Sexual Offences, Crime and Misconduct Research Unit in 2007 to build upon the collaborative relationship between ongoing research within the Psychology Division at NTU and HMP Whatton (the largest sex offender prison in Europe, holding approximately 830 convicted male sex offenders). The unit's primary aim is to conduct and facilitate applied forensic research in the area of sex offending and sexual crime, with the research unit sitting at the juxtaposition between the world of prison and that of academia.

Current research programmes include mixed method evaluations of anti-libidinal medication, pre treatment initiatives, prison and community based Circles of Support and Accountability. Also conducting research exploring religiosity and sexual offenders, peer support programmes, the collecting of sexually explicit materials, personality disorders in sex offenders, challenges for/with transgender prisoners, offenders who target elderly victims, as well as work with non-offending paedophiles and ex-prisoners who are seeking treatment and support to stay offence-free.

The Safer Living Foundation
I am co-founder and trustee of the Safer Living Foundation, a charity set up in 2014 to conduct (and evaluate) initiatives that help to prevent further victims of sexual crime. We are now running prison and community based CoSA and have also started Young People's CoSA. Additionally we are seeking funding to run a regional prevention project in which free treatment and support is offered to individuals concerned they may offend. Please contact me if you are interested.

Further projects include researching child sexual exploitation, and helping institutionalised offenders in the transition from prison to community. Additionally the charity has the goal of setting up accommodation for sex offenders released from custody who would benefit from a 'three quarters' way house.

Ben Heard

Ben Heard is a doctoral student at the University of Adelaide, examining pathways for the decarbonisation of Australian electricity with the inclusion of nuclear energy.

As director of (currently in hiatus) ThinkClimate Consulting he delivered modelling of carbon neutral pathways for South Australia's largest local government and recently advised the South Australian Freight Council in a detailed report called Green Freight.

Ben’s appreciation of the climate crisis forced a rethink of his long-held opposition to nuclear power. In early 2011 he delivered his seminal presentation Nuclear Power: From Opponent to Proponent to a strong response. Ben has since become one of Australia’s most prominent nuclear advocates, presenting his work to audiences large and small around Australia including the 2011 Local Government Association State Conference, the 2012 Frontiers in Science conference and a landmark televised nuclear debate victory in 2012. Ben has written on nuclear power extensively in print and on-line media, including a recent popular article for ABC Environment, Renewable vs nuclear is the wrong battle. His advocacy website, Decarbonise SA, has become a popular resource, attracting over 100,000 hits.

In 2012 he launched his independently funded research Zero Carbon Options, with a first-of-a-kind direct comparison of nuclear and renewable options for the replacement of coal-fired electricity in Australia. In July 2013 he was a presenter and panellist for the ATSE conference "Nuclear power for Australia?"

Ben lives in Adelaide with wife Gemma Munro and their two children.
