Professor of Biomedical Informatics, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
Casey is the Chair of and a Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and the founding Director of the Center for Health AI. His lab develops machine learning methods that integrate distinct large-scale datasets to extract the rich and intrinsic information embedded in such integrated data. This approach reveals underlying principles of an organism’s genetics, its environment, and its response to that environment. Extracting this key contextual information reveals where the data’s context doesn’t fit existing models and raises the questions that a complete collection of publicly available data indicates researchers should be asking. In addition to developing deep learning methods for extracting context, a core mission of his lab is bringing these capabilities into every molecular biology lab through open, transparent science conducted by a diverse team of researchers. Before starting the Integrative Genomics Lab in 2012, Casey earned his Ph.D. for his study of gene-gene interactions in the field of computational genetics from Dartmouth College in 2009 and moved to the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University where he worked as a postdoctoral fellow from 2009-2012. The overarching theme of his work has been the development and evaluation of methods that acknowledge the emergent complexity of biological systems.
Cassandra is currently a Senior Lecturer with the School of Justice, Queensland University of Technology. She joined QUT in 2012, from the Queensland Police Service, where she worked in research and policy roles. Since 2008, Cassandra has focused her research on various aspects of online fraud, including the policing of online fraud, the prevention of online fraud, and the need to support victims who experience online fraud. In 2011, she was awarded the Donald Mackay Churchill Fellowship, which enabled her to travel to the UK, USA and Canada to examine how these jurisdictions respond to online fraud.
She is has just completed a national project with colleagues aimed at improving the reporting experiences and support services available to online fraud victims. This project interviewed 80 victims of online fraud across Australia who reported losses over $10K to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. The findings from this research are due for release shortly.
Cassandra contributes to Project Sunbird, which is a collaborative project targeting online fraud between the West Australian Police and Department of Commerce. She is also the author of the training package entitled "Seniors Online Security", which was developed by the Carindale Police Citizens Youth Club, and is a regular speaker at seniors groups across Australia, educating them about online security. Recently, she was elected to the Board of Directors, for the Queensland Police Citizens Youth Welfare Association (QPCYWA).
I am Associate Professor in Private Law and Technology and Principal Investigator of the ERC Starting Grant HUMANads, focused on understanding the impact of content monetization on social media and on reinterpreting private law fairness in the context of platform governance. Between 2016-2021 I was Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Law at Maastricht University, and during February 2018 - February 2019, I was a Niels Stensen fellow and visited the University of St. Gallen (The Institute of Work and Employment) and Harvard University (The Berkman Center for Internet and Society). I'm also a non-residential fellow of the Stanford Transatlantic Technology Law Forum.
My research follows three main themes:
Content/web monetization and social media governance - the Internet is helping regular users make money in ways that did not exist 10 years ago, such as influencer marketing or ad revenue. In this context, I use doctrinal legal methods to critically reflect on existing and desirable regulatory frameworks surrounding online harms (e.g. content moderation; platform discretion; misleading advertising). To bring together complementing disciplines contributing to this field, I also established and coordinate, with Jerry Spanakis, the Computational Social Media research group.
Privacy, cryptography and decentralization - it is expected that the new age of the Internet will be rooted in technologies meant to enhace privacy, or decentralize decision-making. In this context I use legal and social science approaches to the study of cryptocommunities (e.g. dark web market places).
Digital monitoring tools for consumer protection - the enforcement of law through public interest technology is one of the most essential legal topics of the coming decade. By collaborating with experts in Natural Language Processing and Privacy and Security, I am contributing to the development of tools which can be used by public institutions (e.g. detecting influencer marketing business models on Instagram).
I have the priviledge of supervising four very talented researchers in their PhD research:
Thales Bertaglia (computer scientist working on computational social media studies), Maastricht University
Constanta Rosca (legal scholar working on dark patterns and EU consumer law), Maastricht University
Alex Sotropa (legal scholar working on computational antitrust and consumer protection), VU Amsterdam
Jacob van de Kerkhof (legal scholar working on freedom of expression in US/EU), Utrecht University
Lecturer in Criminology, Royal Holloway University of London
My research sits broadly within 19th and 20th century continental philosophy, sociology of time, feminist theory, gender and sexuality, trans theory, body theory, humanism, posthumanism, antihumanism, materialisms, narratives of disobedience and deviance. Generally interested in relations between normativity and various forms of individual, social, legal, corporeal disobedience.
A lot of my work focuses on trans embodiment and gender recognition and I have published widely on these topics.

Senior Lecturer, Geography and Sustainable Development, University of St Andrews
My academic career started with three degrees in quick succession - an MA in Geography at Oxford (1985), an MSc in Natural Resource Management at Edinburgh (1987) and then a NERC-funded PhD in Glaciology (1990), also at Edinburgh. Having worked in Greenland during my PhD, I then continued my research on the interaction between glaciers and climate change in Patagonia during a 3-year NERC Research Fellowship based in Edinburgh. In 1995 I moved to St Andrews as a Lecturer and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2003. In 2004 I was awarded the President's Medal of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. In 2006 I led the St Andrews bid which won the Times Higher Award for 'Outstanding Contribution to Sustainable Development'.
I have always had strong interests both in environmental management and in glaciology. For much of my career I have focused mainly on the latter, exploring the dynamics and climate sensitivity of calving glaciers in the arctic, in the southern hemisphere (Patagonia, New Zealand) and in Nepal. More recently my interests have moved more into environmental management and sustainable development, both in my research and my teaching. A second edition of my 2002 book Managing Scotland's Environment was published in 2009, and I am actively involved in researching the debates surrounding the development of renewable energy, especially the nature of public attitudes. This has led, inter alia, to a co-edited book investigating aspects of wind power (2012), and I have also co-edited a volume on sustainable upland land use (2013). Here in the university I teach not only on the Geography programme but have helped to launch the inter-disciplinary Sustainable Development degree. From 2004 to 2009 I served as a Senate Assessor on the University Court.
My research interests include: environmental management; land use policy and environmental policy analysis, with an emphasis on the Scottish context; evaluating policies for tackling invasive alien species; the renewable energy transition; socio-economic implications of Scottish land reform; wild land and the 'rewilding' movement.
