    Residential Fellow (2019-20)
    Essex University, UK
    Visiting February 2020

    Luke is a researcher at the BLG Data Research Centre, based at the University of Essex and Research Fellow at the Department of Government. At the BLG Data Research Centre we deploy applied analytics to inform key policy questions, turning data into knowledge and knowledge into impact.

    His expertise is in prediction, using statistical methods and supervised machine learning techniques. His role is two-fold: to inform policy questions from local government and charities and to aid the prediction of political conflict within the academic field of political science.

    His policy role involves engagement with stakeholders such as Essex County Council and Essex Police, exploring a range of policy questions and data analysis related to crime, health and economic growth. This also includes providing training provided to stakeholders, which is also provided through the Centre.

    Luke's current academic research agenda is focused on developing two important bodies of conflict research. The first focuses on analysing armed violence and the effectiveness of UN peacekeeping. This currently consists of the analysis of political violence, militias and UN peacekeeping across Darfur, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The second explores the emergence and dynamics of nonviolent resistance campai

    Elizabeth AblettElizabeth Ablett

    Early Career Fellow (2018-19)
    Department of Sociology

    Dr. Elizabeth Ablett's thesis uses a feminist sociological lens to confront some of the most pressing issues in politics. In the contemporary political moment, questions about how politicians behave, what they do, and who they are, are being fiercely and widely debated. There is also a striking rise in the amount of abuse which women and minority ethnic politicians face. Global movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp aim to tackle abuse in workplaces, and increasing attention is being paid to abuse and violence against politicians.

    Her doctoral work, funded by the ESRC, uses an ethnographic approach to explore how these issues are manifested in local British politics. To do so, she argues that practicing politics should be considered a form of (gendered) work. Her wider research interests include feminist epistemologies, left politics in Britain, work and organisations, and institutional ethnography. Elizabeth is an active member of the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender at Warwick, and a former Visiting Researcher in the Center for Feminist Social Sciences at Örebro University, Sweden.

    Nigeria is one of countries with the highest maternal and child mortality and morbidity rates in the world. This funding will support Dr Abimbola Ayorinde and Professor Debra Bick to visit the University of Ibadan, Nigeria in order to establish collaborations, understand local context and undertake some preliminary work for future GCRF proposals relating to perinatal health. The activities will include workshops with service users, clinicians and researchers in order to establish areas of research priorities. Professor Debra Bick will also deliver a seminar on the current state of maternity care in the UK. Literature reviews will be conducted to establish research aims and objectives. This funding will, therefore, greatly facilitate the development of the future GCRF funding proposals.

    Josefine Baark is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the History of Art Department. Her research traces how miniature automata combined aesthetically pleasing design with their consumers’ tacit knowledge of the unseen, mechanical interior. Such tactile and beautiful technologies play a major part in how people view and respond to the world, whether it be Chinese automata or other intricately designed devices, such as a smartphone. After receiving her PhD from the University of Cambridge (2015), she was based in Hong Kong. In 2017-2018, she was at the University of Copenhagen, where she produced a documentary (Trailer). In 2019, she will be producing a second film, focused on the clockwork found in the Palace Museum in Beijing.

    Infertility treatment clinics are peculiar places. In them, social structures and norms are de-constructed and re-constructed; and complex relations, practices and feelings are negotiated. Assisted conception in Iran is unpredictable and uncertain not only by the virtue of the technology itself, but also in the context of changes to local, national and global social relations. These ongoing changes and different layers of dynamism highlight the importance of conducting other research, particularly on ethnic groups and various identities in Iran, and I plan to pursue as my next research project.

    15 November 2018 - 22 January 2020

    My research draws on three major questions in the context of the sacred spaces in Postcolonial society. The first question is about the social production of the space, particularly in relation to the construction of territory. The second inquires the character of the diasporic engagement in the postcolonial society. The third problematizes the nature of belonging and deterritorialization in the context of sacred spaces. The mode of inquiries would group together highlighting the character of larger engagement of the postcolonial state and society with the enlargement of cosmopolitan ideologies and liberal economy. The focus of inquiry would be on the South Asia, especially around the religious tourist activities on the border such as Kartarpur Corridor on the border of India and Pakistan. My stay in Warwick would help me, among other things, to dwell upon the literature and activities of the diaspora engaged in the activities having direct impact in their homeland of origin.

    Hydrogen is a loop of string. Tie a knot in the loop and you have Helium. Link two loops together, you make a molecule. String, endlessly knotting and linking with itself, weaves the world we see around us. This beautiful idea was proposed by 19th century physicist Lord Kelvin, and though ultimately discarded, recent years have seen its rebirth in the field of 'topological matter', as experimentalists have discovered how to encode knotted structures into liquid crystals, magnets, and even light itself. My current projects are, firstly, to build on the theory of the objects discovered in the above soft matter systems, and secondly to develop further applications of my construction for knotted states.

    My research is based at the intersection of security studies and international political economy, focusing on conceptions of (in)security in global finance. This includes theories of money, debt, value and collateral, informed by a socio-political perspective grounded in the technicalities of modern finance. I hold a PhD in Politics from Lancaster and have worked at the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) for 8 years, leading a work package on Financial security in the EU FP7-funded Societal Security Network (SOURCE) and organising interdisciplinary PhD courses at the Research School on Peace and Conflict. My WIRL-COFUND project examines how and with what consequences the value of safety is changing in post-crisis finance, looking at: 1) Historical and theoretical parameters of safe assets; 2) Systemic and systematic risk; 3) Safety in collateral-based finance and 4) Changing valuation frameworks of safety. I am co-editor of the post-disciplinary open-access journal Finance and Society.

    As a WIRL-COFUND fellow, I will explore the concept of asylum as a contradictory symbol of inclusion within the Nation and Europe. Drawing from social anthropology, feminist philosophy, queer theory and socio-legal studies, my postdoctoral project will examine the meaning and enactment of two central asylum formations in Greek legislation (family asylum and political asylum) in order to map out the entanglements of migrant, kinship and sexual rights, politics, and theories. In 2015, I completed my PhD in the Department of Social Anthropology of the University of Aegean, Greece. My thesis consisted of a long term ethnographic study of BDSM social and sexual networks in contemporary Greece. Over the last decade I have participated in several EU funded projects as a postdoc and field researcher, undertaking research on sexual and gender politics, kinship, migration policies along with issues of institutional injustice.

This exploration of a tanning technology also added to the historical narratives that address class, gender, race, age and sexuality.

    More broadly, I am interested in histories of commercial industries, the media and medical experts, and how these stakeholders influence the representations and understandings of 'consumed' technologies and products - particularly those related to health commerce; 'healthy' bodies; 'excess'; moral panic; stereotyping, and stigma.

While my PhD project focuses on Arab feminist writing, my research interests vary widely, including feminisms and international feminisms, postcolonial studies, protest, embodiment, place and space theory, gender and queer theory, Gothic literature, and zombie fiction.

    I am a performance-maker and ECR interested in applied, autobiographical and multilingual performance. My interdisciplinary PhD research between sociolinguistics and applied performance praxis extrapolated on methodologies for drawing on the dynamic linguistic resources of actors in performancemaking processes. This research responded to the lack of discourse covering approaches to drawing on non-English linguistic resources within praxis which tends to engage actors with minority and low-status varieties, performing autobiography or retelling events in conflict and post-conflict contexts. My current ECR fellowship allows me to continue to explore and test this research in praxis and publications.

It examines a range of different attachments, including adulterous affairs, affinal intimacies, cohabiting relationships, and ménages-à-trois. It uses these relationships as a lens through which to explore class, gender, and political issues in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

    I intend to use my early career fellowship to start developing my next project (hopefully on social networks) and to explore the different mediums that I could use to communicate my research to enhance its accessibility and impact. The broader public avidly consume history, in the forms of documentaries, historical novels and period dramas, and I would like to explore the roles available for the academic historian in this process.

    With a lens of hermeneutic phenomenology, in my PhD research, I explore how democratisation is experienced by the internationally funded non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Pakistan. I argue that democratisation does not involve grass-root mobilisation, volunteerism, and ideological struggle. It is ‘projectised’: led by highly paid professionals, it is a depoliticised, bureaucratically managed and skilled activity. My research interests include democratisation, constitutionalism, civil society and phenomenology. I have worked with NGOs in Pakistan and England for over 14 years in areas of democracy promotion and voluntary sector infrastructure. I aim to deepen my research with a focus on the meanings and perceptions of democracy in the global South.

    My postdoctoral project is entitled: Richard Hakluyt’s The Principal Navigations: Travel, Colonialism, Prose. The project focuses on The Principal Navigations (1598-1600), one of the most important works of English travel literature ever published. I aim to situate The Principal Navigations in the formation of global systems, such as trade, mobility and colonialism. I hypothesise that Hakluyt founded a form of colonial travel discourse which finds its way into the writing of the following century, specifically seventeenth-century prose fiction.

    As a Romance philologist, my main interests are medieval European lyric, manuscript studies, music, and digital humanities. The aim of my research at the University of Warwick is to reveal the translingual and interconnected nature of medieval romance lyric by looking at musical imitations occurring across four different repertoires: Italian, French, Occitan, and Galician-Portuguese lyric. In the Middle Ages melodic imitation was an essential part of artistic creation: old melodies were constantly borrowed by new authors (a practice known as contrafaction). Since poets travelled from court to court, tracing the connections between melodies allows us to walk through their itineraries, creating a map of literary relationships.

The goal of my visits are to continue and solidify the collaboration that started during my initial visits to Warwick, with Professor Maple (WMG) and Dr. Walasek (Department of Psychology). We will focus on the development of the novel model of coherent models of cognition inspired by models of system dynamics. This modeling approach is well suited for simulating complex interactive (nonlinear) systems that characterise the interplay between people’s behavior, attitudes, beliefs, and preferences. This will be the first attempt at using system dynamics to understand individual-level cognitive processes.

    My doctoral thesis investigates the discourse of flattery in Seneca’s philosophical texts, and analyses the extent to which Seneca developed a theory of adulation which is ‘put into practice’ in works like the Consolatio ad Polybium. My research has been generously supported by the Wolfson Foundation. As part of my PhD, in 2018, I was a visiting graduate student at the Johns Hopkins University. My second project, which is inherently interdisciplinary, focuses on the dramatic and historiographical representation of Octavia, the first wife of Nero. My publications' record shows an interdisciplinary view on Classics: in my last article, I examine Claudius' speech in the Ad Polybium.

    My research examines clinical communication with a particular focus on investigating and improving NHS written discharge communications. It is a well-established practice that written discharge communication should take place between the discharging physician and follow-up physician. However, whilst in the UK patients receiving letters is considered to be ‘good practice’, it is not standardised; the result is that patients may or may not receive these letters. My PhD research centred on processes of patients receiving discharge letters and comprised a mixed methods design which triangulated discharge communication experiences of patients, GPs, and hospital professionals alongside a corresponding discharge letter sample.

    My PhD research focused on bringing together a disparate array of subjects to examine the potential effectiveness and user requirements of tangible 3D printed replicas within museums and in wider cultural heritage. The research remit was diverse, combining methods from Palaeontology, Cultural Heritage and Engineering with rigorous enquiry from the social sciences to better ascertain the role that tangible models fabricated using 3D printing have on the experiences of museum visitors in the exhibition hall. The outcomes of this research project represent the earliest forays into understanding the visitor experience with cutting-edge display technologies and ideally will enable positive change towards the visitor-centred museum."

    My work explores the representation of American history by developer Rockstar Games. More specifically, my PhD research has examined the way Rockstar marketed popular historical video games such as Red Dead Redemption (2010) and L.A. Noire (2011), and in doing so, sought to perform the role of historian. By constructing and curating historical narratives intended to legitimise gameplay and narrative design choices, Rockstar – like many developers of historical games – stake a claim for the ‘authenticity’ of their products, and commodify their engagements with historical research and evidence. I am also interested in the marketing and branding of games and media texts more broadly, as well as the representation of America’s past in other kinds of visual media.

    My PhD thesis, ‘Producing and Marketing Translations in Fascist Italy: Uncle Tom's Cabin and Little Women’, examines the sociological, cultural and ideological contexts affecting the production and marketing of two these long sellers of the American literature which addressed different target audiences. Tracing the history of publishing of these two novels, my research intends to gain insight into the continuities and discontinuities between Liberal and Fascist Italy and into the Fascist representation of race and gender. I am also part-time teaching assistant of Italian and I contributed to outreach schools events to raise awareness in the importance of languages. I joined Warwick in 2013, after completing a PhD in History of Italian Language at the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’. In March 2018 I took up a Teaching Fellowship at Warwick.

    Soroosh’s research focuses on functional connectivity of the human brain. Using neuroimaging techniques and statistical methods, he develops frameworks aiming to facilitate group inference to gain a better understanding into changes in the human brain due to neuropsychiatric disorders. He completed his PhD in 2016 at the Institute of Digital Healthcare, University of Warwick. His thesis was focused on developing network statistical methods to describe the human ‘connectomics’ in healthy and disordered subjects. Prior to his PhD, in 2012, he graduated in Electronic Engineering from the University of Birmingham. Since October 2016, he has undertaken a fellowship at the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS), University of Warwick. His research at IAS is focused on the novel area of ‘population connectomics’ which aims to integrate topological features of the brain with other available phenotypes through large-scale data-sets to explore the interaction between the human brain, demographics, behaviour and lifestyle.

    My PhD thesis explored the functions of classical learning in colonial Paraguay between 1750 and 1815. My research centred primarily on the legacy of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) as authors of Latin literature, as educators, and as missionaries to the Guarani Indians. I argued that a focus on classical learning shed light on broader intellectual trends in the transition from the colonial to independent periods, which help explain the initial construction of national identities. In Spring 2016 I was a visiting graduate student at Johns Hopkins University as part of the project ‘Antiquity and its Uses’ between Hopkins and the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance at Warwick. As an Early Career Fellow at the IAS, I am keen to continue forging links between students and academics interested in the reception of antiquity across disciplines. In April 2018 I began a short-term fellowship at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Neo-Latin Studies, Austria.

    Adam's research addresses asymptotic properties of random motions in disordered media. His main focus is on models of biased random walks which experience trapping due to random perturbations in the environment. This includes mathematical models such as the Bouchaud trap model, random walks on Galton-Watson trees and random walks on percolation clusters; however, a large driving force in this area has been due to a variety of probabilistic models originating from physical sciences including condensed matter physics, reaction kinetics and polymer dynamics where diffusion in inhomogeneous media is of considerable interest. He aims to work on to a wider range of dynamic, stochastic models including activated random walks. In April 2018 I took up a postdoctoral research fellowship at National University of Singapore.

    My research focuses on literary theory, affect and modern European fiction. In my PhD thesis, “Stimmung and Modernity: The Aesthetic Philosophy of Mood in Dostoevsky, Beckett and Bernhard”, I explored the aesthetic concept of Stimmung (mood) through the lens of the modern philosophy of the subject and in nineteenth- and twentieth-century European literature. I am currently working on an edited volume based on an interdisciplinary conference on mood, which I co-organised in 2016, and am looking to expand my research on the affective dimension of aesthetic experience in my postdoctoral research. In January 2018 I took up a Teaching Fellowship at Queen Mary, University of London.

    My research in astronomy focuses on the study of transient events occurring within the central regions of their host galaxies. These include supernovae, gamma-ray bursts and tidal disruption flares, the latter representing the shredding and accretion of a star by a supermassive black hole. These have the power to provide insights into black hole growth and thus galaxy formation and evolution. I also have a passion for outreach, organising trips to local schools with the Astronomy Group's planetarium and providing contributions to on-campus events such as the XMaS Gala and visits in association with Coventry City Council's LACES scheme. InAugust 2017 I was appointed Royal Lead Astronomy Education Officer at the Observatory Greenwich, London.

    Concordia University, Canada
    28 April - 12 May 2019

    Nominated By Daniel Katz, Department of English & Comparative Literary Studies. Dr Nathan Brown is Canada Research Chair and Director of the Centre for Expanded Poetics (CEP). The Centre is on the cutting-edge internationally of interdisciplinary research in poetry and poetics. Dr Brown is one of the leading scholars of poetry and poetics of his generation. His path-breaking monograph, The Limits of Fabrication: Materials Science, Materialist Poetics (Fordham UP, 2017), is an extraordinarily broad-ranging and truly interdisciplinary work, taking the venerable idea of the poet as “maker” and colliding it with an analysis of Western philosophy’s investigations of the concept of matter and materialism, and what’s more, with the new discipline of Materials Science. Brown’s work here not only cuts across the literature/philosophy divide, but also that between the “human” and “hard” sciences. The CEP, which Dr Brown has founded, is explicitly devoted to interdisciplinary expansion of “poetics” as conventionally understood.

    I am a historian of twentieth-century Britain interested in the intersecting histories of medicine and childhood. My research focuses on the ways in which medicine and the social sciences have a porous boundary with each other, with neighbouring disciplines, and exert an influence on everyday practices for people in the past. My doctoral project examined adolescent children and discipline in schools. More specifically, I looked at how teachers came to understand their pupils' behaviour through the prism of different (inter-related) methodological approaches which shifted over the course of the century (from psychology to sociology and back again). Meanwhile, my developing interest lies in the history of speech therapy as a theory and practice in twentieth-century Britain. This was a similarly diverse and inter-allied profession, and one which provides a vantage point from which to consider several research areas: social attitudes towards the voice; speech's relationship to class and gender; and where the limits of the 'medical' actually lie.

    Dr Rossana Castaldo is a Postdoc Researcher in the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick. In her PhD research, she examined how the shift of healthcare monitoring techniques from laboratories into real-life scenarios can be achieved. In her current postdoc (2018-2019), she investigates the use of wearable devices for monitoring circadian rhythms in oncological patients. In fact, due to circadian rhythms, the efficacy and side effects of chemotherapy change throughout the day. Chemotherapy in turn alters circadian rhythm. Therefore, being able to monitor in real-time circadian rhythms could lead to the development of personalised treatment to achieve better efficacy and reduce side effects of the oncological therapy.

    Why did the British state propel the expansion of the financial sector in the 1970s and 1980s? While most accounts emphasise the role of financial lobbyists and the power of neoliberal ideas, my PhD research offered a different explanation. By examining declassified government documents, I argued that the British state acted to liberalise the City of London as a desperate, ad hoc strategy to govern both the global profitability crisis of the period and the immediate demands of the British electorate. More broadly, my work is concerned with the political governance of capitalism and theories of economic value.

    When self-development companies program apps to encourage us to cultivate ourselves they are currently guided by positive psychologists and self-help gurus, both of who primarily understand human flourishing in terms of physical and emotional well-being. Although the importance of well-being should never be underestimated, my PhD research offers an original theory of how we can cultivate flourishing. This moves beyond a standard conception of well-being to emphasise the importance of those activities that give our lives purpose and meaning. By understanding human flourishing more comprehensively, I believe that self-development companies can significantly enhance the first-wave of app-based technologies that aim to improve our practical lives. My Early Career Innovation Fellowship allowed me to share my research with companies in the self-development app market to enrich the conception of flourishing with which they develop their products.

    University of Utrecht, Netherlands
    6 – 10 March 2017

    Nominated by Professor Anne Gerritsen, Department of History. Professor Dupre is currently working on two projects. The first project (in collaboration with Christine Göttler) studies the material possessions of a Portuguese merchant-banker Emmanuel Ximenez in early seventeenth-century Antwerp as a window onto the global connections of this individual and the early modern city. The second project (ARTECHNE, supported by an ERC Consolidator Grant) investigates the long-term history of the concepts and practices of technique in the arts between 1500 and 1950. He used his time at the IAS to engage in a conversation on these projects with the interdisciplinary intellectual community at Warwick. Also, together with Michael Bycroft, he worked on the edited book coming out of a multi-year project, Gems in the Early Modern World: Materials, Values and Knowledge.

    My doctoral research looked at how the recent UK welfare reform policies combined with substantial cuts to public sector funding have had multiple impacts on people living in Coventry, significantly affecting their human rights. Using the Capability Approach (a theoretical framework devised by Amartya Sen about wellbeing, development and justice), I interviewed people to find out how their experiences of welfare reform and austerity affected their daily lives, not just in terms of income, but on their physical and emotional lives and how much agency they had over their own lives. Collaborating with Coventry City Council and local advice agencies, I found that, far from encouraging them to flourish, the current welfare system often resulted in vulnerable individuals floundering and struggling to survive. My future research interests lie in exploring the increasing contribution of these ‘experts by experience’ in challenging and shaping welfare reforms and the intersection of the concept of Civil Society with economic and social rights in the UK in the 21st century.

    My PhD research examined the works of three ‘forgotten’ British artists in the period 1880-1920 whose paintings attest to the rich and varied experience of modernity. I contribute to current scholarship which seeks to redefine modernity in a more inclusive way. A central concern of the thesis has been to bring women, their increased presence in the public sphere and visual culture in this period, into the frame. Contemporary women imagined invigorating movements, from the confines of the domestic interior into the airy heights of mountain tops, using languages of righteousness and joyous expectancy. The artworks examined provide visual analogues and commentaries on these feminist possibilities. I would like to connect with scholars working across different disciplines on themes including womanhood, representation, spirituality, modernity.

    I am a philosopher of history and historical social science. I am working on arguments showing that possibilities are the basic semantic units in historical descriptions. My research explores different versions of this claim in action-explanations, theories of historiography, and analyses of sociological concepts. I studied philosophy at York and Cambridge before coming to Warwick to work with a Max Weber specialist. My PhD thesis combined textual commentary with analytical theory to reveal the importance of implicit claims about possibilities in Montaillou by Emmanuel LeRoy Ladurie. I have developed this into two broader projects. One demonstrates the virtues of using period-specific (medieval) examples in analytical philosophy of history. Another investigates the relationship between historical sensitivity and moderate political thought. In April 2018 I took up a research fellowship at Oulu University, Finland.

    Professor Matthew Turner, Department of Physics. Professor Turner and I are collaborating on the study of linear fluctuations of multi-component lipid membranes, which builds up on an earlier work of mine (Fonda et al. PRE 2018). More specifically, the project deals with multi-component lipid membranes which can be attached onto 3D-printed substrates while retaining their liquid nature. Once attached, these lipids form coexistent phase domains, whose linear boundary can fluctuate. The spectrum of these fluctuations is directly influenced by basic physical properties of the different phase domains; as such, a measure of this spectrum can provide a new way of estimating one a few key mechanical properties of lipid membranes; in particular, the saddle splay modulus. This has been particularly elusive to estimate using other techniques.

Dr Galley’s research focuses on the penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs), which are responsible for the final steps in the biosynthesis of the bacterial cell wall. PBPs are excellent targets for antimicrobial drugs as they are essential for cell viability. To date, she has identified a critical PBP substrate recognition phenomenon in Streptococcus pneumonia that has led to advances in understanding the cell wall synthesis process, and characterised two novel carbohydrate based inhibitors of these targets. In March 2016 Dr Galley took up a position as Research Associate at Sheffield University.

Daniel’s PhD thesis explores the genomics-based discovery of novel antibiotic compounds, and protein interactions during their biosynthesis. His findings enable the development of new hybrid-bioactive molecules that were previously intractable, to combat the challenge of multi-drug resistance pathogens. Prior to his PhD, Daniel completed a Masters in Mathematical Biology and Biophysical Chemistry, and a Master’s degree in Mathematics and Physics at Warwick.

It established the need for medical leadership development programmes across all career stages of doctors and across all healthcare organizations in the country. Several healthcare leadership models exist in the West viz. NHS, CanMeds, Duke, etc. However, there are fundamental differences in these models and therefore, it is important to ensure that the leadership models and frameworks are contextualized to the economic and socio-political context of each country.

    28 April - 8 May 2019

    Nominated by Professor Shirin Rai, Department of Politics & International Studies. At a moment when increasingly racist forms of ethno-nationalism are surfacing around the globe, it is important to analyze how academic disciplines and state practices contribute to the production of inequities and injustices. In contrast to received views in political science that depict sex, gender, and race as natural modes of embodiment, my recent work challenges the illusion that bodies exist outside politics and beyond the reach of the state. Drawing insights from critical race, feminist, decolonial, postcolonial, queer, and trans* theory, I show how accredited conceptions of embodiment, gender, liberty, public/private, and the nation-state relegate women, people of color, sexual minorities, and gender-variant people to inferior status despite constitutional guarantees of equality before the law. While at Warwick, I worked with scholars and students to theorize conceptual practices of power and envisioned strategies to make racialized gendering visible and actionable.

Taruma is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in low and middle income countries, accounting for 16% of the global burden of disease. There is a large discrepancy between trauma care provided in well-resourced countries and those of lesser incomes, resulting in poorer outcomes and grerater burdens of disease in low resource countries. In Haiti, there is currently no established trauma training standards or mandatory courses for health care professionals treating trauma patients in the Northern region. The implimentation of a trauma care course has the potential to improve patient care, and as a result reduce preventable death rates.

Recently, he studied contact sites between biomolecular fluids and biomembranes. Using a combination of experiment and theory, he discovered three distinct states of wetting and provided the first experimental evidence for the novel concept of intracellular wetting. His results suggest that physical contacts between proteinaceous droplets and conventional, membrane-bound organelles may function as an organizational principle in cells. Intracellular wetting phenomena are not well understood - either in cell biology, or in soft matter physics and interfacial sciences. The Fellowship contributed to crosslinking these fields further. Together they may help to understand a multitude of biological processes in cells better. His visit provided us with an alternative view on the biology of modern cells as well as on the Origin of life, and thus, offered a significant contribution to link his research with multiple sections of the University.

    My research broadly focuses on questions of democratic legitimacy and accountability in the governance of the global economy, particularly in natural resource-based sectors (i.e., mining). I am especially interested in the way that national states and domestic law enable global economic integration, and the internal contradictions that said integration can produce within democratically constituted states. This research interest is animated by a concern about the potentially anti-democratic effects of economic globalisation in relation to capital-importing, commodity-producing states in the Global South, as well as the way global processes are transforming the terms of local and national conflicts over natural resources. My PhD research developed an extended case study of Mongolia's integration into the global minerals economy as a process of state transformation and de facto constitutionalism, using a socio-legal methodology. I provided empirical evidence that natural resource-based development under global conditions produces significant reordering effects on state-society relations. Following on from my PhD research, I plan to engage with the political and legal ramifications of new economic regionalism in East and Central Asia.

    2018-19

    This award will be used to support policy-orientated research on harnessing Africa's digital potential for sustainable economic development and transformation. This is following on from a March 2018 GRP International Development sponsored international seminar on 'Responding to opportunities for using mobile and digital money to achieve a pathway out of poverty in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA)'. By 2015 it is predicted that 50% of the total value of the global economy will be generated digitally; it is therefore important and necessary for the SSA to be ready and capable to benefit from this development. In this regard, research on the use of mobile and e-money and the digitisation of financial transactions will support the efforts of African governments and their development partners in ensuring active & beneficial participation of SSA in a global digital economy. We hope to promote an interdisciplinary research approach through cooperation with the newly establish Merian Institute for Advanced Studies in Africa (MIASA) and the Institute of African Studies, both at the University of Ghana. If successful, it will further research networking with both these and other relevant institutions in the country for long-term collaboration building, as well as support activities by the wider Warwick community for enhancing research and policy analysis capabilities at the University of Ghana and beyond. Collaboration with ISSER (Ghana)will also serve as a basis for engagement on policy issues on the subject, specifically through direct cooperation with two relevant West African inter-governmental financial institutions; West African Money Institute (WAMI, Accra) and the West African Monetary Agency (WAMA, Freetown). These collaborations will go toward supporting the co-development and implementation of a longer term GCRF research proposal on the digitisation of financial transactions for sustainable development and poverty reduction.

Emerging into adult stardom in the early 1960s, Wood’s sexual maturation sparked onscreen tensions reflective not only of cultural anxieties but also of a system in serious decline. During her visit Professor Lucia discussed Wood as an actress whose roles and career allegorize dramatic transitions in the Hollywood industry and American society. She also conducted further archival research at the BFI. Alongside this her continued collaboration with Dr Smyth and Visiting Fellow Professor Grundmann was strengthened, preparing both written pieces and funding applications.

    The differential impact of the global financial crisis across the world has left a trail of unanswered questions in its wake. Whereas most accounts insist on global explanations and universal remedies, my PhD thesis employs an innovative interdisciplinary approach to demonstrate the historical specificity of the Spanish housing crash. Tracing the genealogies of a number of institutions and practices – including urban planning, homeownership, banking governance, and political corruption – I argue that the Spanish experience ought to be seen as the culmination of its domestic form of residential capitalism, one that binds together the interests of political parties to those of real estate actors. Overall, my work lies at the intersection between two fields, political economy and historical sociology. My next project seeks to expand my analysis of residential capitalism in a comparative direction, putting the Spanish case in dialogue with the British and German experiences.

    My research focuses on the role of ethnicity in childhood obesity, which developed out of a practical need to explore childhood obesity in the ethnically diverse population of Coventry, in order to enhance the design local obesity services. I have used a mixed methods study design to identify ethnic disparities in childhood obesity and understand the cultural and contextual contributors to these disparities. My research has benefitted from use of a child-centred methodology that privileged children’s perspectives, and from the design of a novel mixed methods analytical integration, producing a greater ‘yield’ than stand alone quantitative and qualitative methods.

    9 - 19 October 2017

    Nominated by Professor Shaun Breslin, Department of Politics & International Studies. Professor Nesadurai’s research examines the origins of new sustainability norms through studying palm oil sustainability governance. Palm oil, a major global commodity, has gained notoriety as a driver of deforestation, carbon emissions and social conflict, as seen in its principle producing countries, namely Malaysia and Indonesia. While at Warwick, she discussed three social mechanisms explaining the emergence and diffusion of hybrid norms addressing environmental and developmental concerns - contestation, traceability practices, and brokerage - and their potential to legitimise the more encompassing global sustainability norms advanced by non-state actors (NGOs and corporations). The study is located within IR’s “agentic constructivist” approach that emphasises agents and their practices in the origins and consolidation of new norms.

    Dr Nishiyama’s doctoral thesis scrutinises the historical relations between racism and biometrics in Japan from the colonial period to the present. Adopting Foucault’s historical method, it analyses the interplay between discourses on race and practices of biometric identification, and articulates historical transformations of the biopolitical strategy of control-subjectification of race. The preliminary findings of his thesis have been published in the leading international and interdisciplinary journal Environment and Planning D: Society and Space. He has also published a book chapter on the exceptional politics of maritime borders in post-9/11 Japan, which was derived from his MSc dissertation. Dr Nishiyama’s research interests lie in cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approaches, particularly the intersection of Japanese modernity and critical theories of global politics.

    As a Social Psychologist, I critique existing measures used to estimate unconscious/implicit biases (e.g., prejudice towards other races). I have designed two new implicit measures which I have demonstrated provide useful advantages over the current “gold standard” implicit tasks. I also use “big data” to explain factors that exacerbate prejudice (e.g., disease rates/segregation) towards stigmatised groups (e.g., immigrants/minorities) both across and within countries/cultures. I completed an International Psychology BA at the National University of Ireland, Galway and the University of Ottawa. I also hold an MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology from the London School of Economics and Political Science. During my PhD at the University of Warwick, I built collaborative links with the world’s largest online virtual laboratory, Project Implicit (Harvard University and the University of Florida). Upon completing my ECF, i was awarded a MSCA International Fellowship at the University of Amsterdam, with a two-year placement at Harvard University.

    Nominated by Dr Goldie Osuri, Department of Sociology. There has been much written on the forms of control enacted in the splintering occupation of Palestine, in particular regarding mobility, identity, and spatiality, yet this vast scholarship has presumed the prominence of the abled-body that is hindered through the infrastructures of occupation. In my current research I examine the splintering occupation in relation to disability and the spatial distribution of debilitation, highlighting the logistics of border crossings and movement in the West Bank in relation to disability rights frameworks. I am developing two arguments: one, that the creation of what Celeste Langan terms "mobility disabilities" through both corporeal assault and infrastructural and bureaucratic means are not only central to the calculus of the occupation, but importantly, linked logics of debilitation; and two, that these calibrations of various types of movement are forms of carceral containment and enclosure that render specific stretchings of space and time, what we could call slow life.

    School of Modern Languages & Cultures

    Dr Paola Roccella’s research interests concern Twentieth-century Italian literature, with a particular focus on the fantastic as a way to enact an oblique socio-political critique of historical reality. Examining a group of authors active in Italy between the 1930s and the 1950s (including Alberto Savinio, Tommaso Landolfi, and Anna Maria Ortese), she argues that the slippery entities, settings, situations, and narrative modalities involved in their fictional works not only voice the cultural and political instability of the time but also echo parallel debates on human instincts and aggressiveness that were taking place in the fields of ethnology and anthropology. Her current research investigates this question by focusing more specifically on a series of ethno-anthropological studies (Collezione di studi religiosi, etnologici e psicologici Einaudi) published in Italy between 1948 and 1956, and which had an important impact on the literary field.

As a comparatist scholar of modern and contemporary literature, my current research itinerary divides into two broad areas: 1) modernist poetry/poetics and its contemporary legacies; 2) the “global” turn in modernist studies. My first monograph, Invisible Terrain: John Ashbery and the Aesthetics of Nature (OUP, 2017), examines the poetry of John Ashbery in relation to the avant-garde fantasy that nature can become art. I am also co-editor with Dr. Alys Moody of Global Modernists on Modernism (Bloomsbury, 2019), a 210K-word anthology of programmatic statements by modernist artists that reflect on the theory and practice of modernism in its various global formations. As an IAS fellow representing Concordia University’s Centre for Expanded Poetics (CEP), I will work closely with Warwick faculty (my former colleagues) and students to develop a collaborative research program that engages poetics as an inclusive rubric encompassing questions of (literary) making beyond the strict confines of poetry as such.

    Dr Santos’ PhD thesis titled Late Postcoloniality: State, Violence and Wealth in the Literatures of early 21st Century Portuguese-speaking Africa consists on a comparative study of the contemporary literatures of Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique and São Tomé and Príncipe, enquiring the ways in which their postcolonial experience has been shaped by their 21st Century fiction. Considering these societies’ aftermaths of independence, the research promotes both a comparative assessment of current pathways of national discourses in literature, as well as a critique of postcolonial theory, as it points to the need of supplementary theoretical tools to analyse situated realities of contemporary postcolonies.

    Warwick Medical School

    I am a recent graduate of the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research doctoral training partnership funded by the MRC. The research I carried out over the course of my PhD focused on the DNA replication machinery, known as the replisome, in the model organism budding yeast. The accurate, faithful replication of the cell’s genetic information, the genome, is paramount in maintaining its stability and the replisome. Failure to do so can give rise to widespread mutations that, in humans, can drive the transformation of a healthy cell to a cancerous one. More specifically, the work I performed looked at the diverse roles of a component of the replisome, DNA polymerase ε, as cells replicate their DNA, which I discovered had a previously unidentified function in signalling DNA damage. During my time with the IAS, I hope to finish off the work I undertook in order to publish it, as well as developing my portfolio of skills to help me make the next step in my career.

I am interested to what extent theatre and colonialism have been productive of each other’s orders, knowledge formations, and truth claims and to what extent they continue to do so today. In introducing the concept of colonial theatricality my research provides an understanding of the German empire that goes beyond its territorial, administrative and military strategies and includes its cultural manifestations and its ‘representational machinery’ as well. Next to my academic research I work as a dramaturg, advisor and mentor in the realm of theatre, dance and performance.

Theatre can offer culturally relevant and participatory interventions in peacebuilding contexts. This project sought to develop understandings of what factors might limit the efficacy of theatre and peacebuilding projects by engaging with the perspectives of theatre practitioners working in Kenya. Workshops and focus groups were held in Mombasa, Nairobi and Kisumu, attended by over 50 theatre practitioners. The findings suggest that inadequate funding, a lack of time and inadequate networks hinder theatre and peacebuilding projects.

    My PhD research in Warwick Chemistry is Post Assembly Functionalized Peptidomimetic Metallohelices. I designed and synthesized the highly stereoselective asymmetric self-assembly bimetallic helices (metal centre FeCl2 or Zn(ClO4)2) which contain terminal alkyne groups. Then, I clicked aromatic azides or sugar azides onto the preformed complex to extend the helices functionality and investigate the biological properties. In particular, the sugar (β-glucose, β-galactose) clicked metallohelices shows the dramatically increased anticancer activity in vitro compared with the alkyne unclicked complexes. I also developed new directional ligand containing triazole-imine and bipridine to form a new asymmetric self-assembly bimetallic helical system.

How do these experiences and contexts challenge our notions of translation (authorship; uses of communication), transnationalism (polity and translation), multiculturalism (identity and translation)? How does communication, not as a goal of translation, but as a political necessity, change our perspective on ethics, economy, and history? In short, what is translation today?

    My doctoral thesis investigated the conceptualisation of the ‘apotropaic’ phallus of Pompeii and Herculaneum in the context of these sites’ celebrated rediscovery during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. My project’s re-examination of the ideological genealogy of phallic apotropaism in relation to late eighteenth- and nineteenth-century archaeological, anthropological and comparative-religious discourse highlights its particular import for the socio-cultural inquiries and concerns of that era. Accordingly, my research grapples with the History of Ideas as well as the developments of popular perceptions of the sites and their significant place in the cultural imagination of the ancient past, and our ongoing relationship with it. Moving forward, I hope to explore other, wider aspects of the historical role of popular perceptions of antiquity in the construction of ‘accepted’ knowledge about the ancient world and its relevance to modernity. I have a strong interest in outreach, widening participation and public engagement, and take every opportunity to engage with non-specialist audiences.

    I am an interdisciplinary biomedical scientist and trained brain surgeon (for rodents). My current research investigates how the brain senses changes in blood Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in order to regulate our breathing. As CO2 is a waste product, and is toxic in high quantities, sensing and responding to changes in CO2 is vital for all air-breathing animals. Without this function any periods of high CO2 production (e.g. exercise) would prove detrimental to bodily functions.

    Democracies are widely considered to be improved by bringing government 'closer to the people' through devolving administrative and political power. But beyond normative ideals, how do such reforms work in practice? Do they change how institutions function, how elected officials behave, and how citizens are connected to the state? My research examines the perspectives and practices of the new locally-elected officials, how they used their positions to respond to popular conceptions of their roles, and the resultant contingent effect on presidential power. My broad research interest lies in exploring the everyday practices of democratic institutions, revealing the complex and uneven nature of democratic reform. Future research plans include bringing this approach to a comparative project of the everyday functioning of political parties in East Africa.

The UN lists reducing the maternal mortality rate to <70 women in every 100,000 live births by 2030 as its #1 “Goal 3 Target”. There is an unacceptably large difference in the death of mothers during childbirth between the developed and developing world, with the vast majority of these deaths occurring in areas of sub-Saharan African where there are deficiencies in simple medical resources and infrastructure to cope with complications arising during pregnancy, delivery and recovery. Our work is focused on improving the treatment of postpartum haemorrhaging (PPH), the excessive and uncontrolled bleeding that can occur due to insufficient contraction of uterus after delivery. Typically, PPH is treated using therapeutic peptide oxytocin, a World Health Organization (WHO) essential medicine, however, oxytocin suffers from chemical instability and loss of efficacy in aqueous solution, which is exacerbated by high temperatures and inefficient cold chain storage, conditions which are common of developing nations. We are using simple chemistry to modify oxytocin with a view to enhancing aqueous stability whilst retaining, or enhancing efficacy. Thus, we are going to use our IAS GCRF Fellowship to visit South Africa to scope out collaborations based on establishing a multi-disciplinary, international consortium of researchers to tackle maternal mortality in the developing world.

This is a fundamental process by which cells internalise large cargo such as iron and cholesterol across the outer membrane. I have developed a system of clathrin-mediated endocytosis that can be triggered in single cells at a specified place and time, allowing for much easier study of the molecular details of this process.
