InReach aims to showcase Warwick's exceptional research community with bold, exciting 10X ideas and inspire future leaders.
Upcoming InReach10X Speakers
Alice MahLink opens in a new window
Alice Mah is a Professor of Sociology and Head of the Department, with research interests in environmental justice, corporate power, toxic pollution, and the politics of green industrial transformations. She holds a PhD in Sociology from the London School of Economics and was the Principal Investigator of the European Research Council-funded Starting Grant “Toxic Expertise: Environmental Justice and the Global Petrochemical IndustryLink opens in a new window" from 2015-2020.
Alice is also Co-Director of the Warwick Environmental Systems Interdisciplinary CentreLink opens in a new window (WESIC).
Alice will be giving an InReach10x Seminar Talk on Thursday 11th May 2023, in OC1.01
Timothy SaundersLink opens in a new window
After undergraduate and PhD studies in theoretical physics, A/P Saunders moved into the field of developmental biology for his postdoctoral work. He was motivated by the problem of “noise” in biology – how do biological systems (such as our organs) reliably form given the unavoidable presence of multiple sources of error during development? He learnt to do experimental work at EMBL-Heidelberg before starting his own group at the Mechanobiology Institute within the National University of Singapore in 2013. There, he developed a research programme combining quantitative in vivo measurements with developmental biology and advanced image analysis to explore how organisms robustly formed. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2020 and subsequently moved to Warwick in July 2021. Here, he has carried on his work on organ formation but also branched out into human organoids. His lab contains people with backgrounds in biology, mathematics and computer science.
Tim will be giving an InReach10x Seminar Talk, date TBC.
Suzy Moat is a Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School, where she co-directs the Data Science Lab. She is also a Fellow of The Alan Turing Institute. Her research investigates whether data on our usage of the Internet, from sources such as Google, Wikipedia and Flickr, can help us measure and even predict human behaviour in the real world.
Moat's work touches on problems as diverse as linking online behaviour to stock market moves (with Preis, Curme, Stanley, et al.), estimating crowd sizes (with Botta and Preis) and evaluating whether the beauty of the environment we live in might affect our health (with Seresinhe and Preis). The results of her research have been featured by television, radio and press worldwide, by outlets such as CNN, BBC, The Guardian, Wall Street Journal, New Scientist and Wired.
