Aaron Eger

Postdoctoral research fellow, UNSW Sydney
Aaron is a marine scientist researching how we can combine ecological, social, and economic knowledge to provide solutions to wicked problems in our world’s oceans. He works to achieve this goal, not by re-inventing the wheel, but instead by taking a creative view to the information that already exists

Aaron's areas of expertise are: data synthesis and policy recommendations, spatial statistics and analysis, quantitative analysis and forecasting, and economic assessments of environmental services

Aaron is currently working on consolidating information about the best way to restore our underwater forests (kelp beds). For this project he is creating the world's first database of kelp restoration projects, analyzing the efficacy of these projects, providing cost estimates of restoration. Following from this work, Aaron is calculating economic estimates of the ecosystem services provided by Nereocystis, Macrocystis, Laminaria, Ecklonia, and Lessonia forests.

Aaron Robotham

Research Associate Professor & UWA Research Fellow, The University of Western Australia
Aaron Robotham did his PhD at the University of Bristol between 2005-2008. This involved analysing the contents of groups of galaxies discovered in the Australian led 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey. He subsequently moved to St Andrews in the UK and began working on the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey, which had a large amount of observing time on the Anglo-Australian Telescope in NSW. Using this data Aaron constructed common groups of galaxies, and used this information to infer the dark matter contents of the local Universe.

In order to continue working on GAMA, and to move nearer to collaborators, Aaron moved to ICRAR/UWA in Perth in 2011. Initially this was only meant to be a short trip, but he has stayed there ever since. He continues to be involved in GAMA, and is also now working closely with Australian radio astronomers and simulators who model the Universe in order to understand what we see.

Aarushi Bhandari

Assistant Professor of Sociology, Davidson College
My current research trajectory focuses on the attention economy; the economies constructed for information and communication technologies (ICTs), especially the internet and social media. My book Attention and Alienation: Reflections on the Many promises of ICTs for Social Progress is under contract with Columbia University Press. This book presents quantitative data on internet and mobile penetration across the world from 1990-2020 to unpack the historical impacts these technologies have had on different elements of global change, including international development and social movements. Throughout the book, I weave narratives about my own experiences growing up as a young millennial girl during the Nepali Civil War. These narratives provide the contexts, positions and perspectives that inspire my analysis of the data.

Expanding on my interests in the phenomena of technology and attention, my newer projects focus on the study of meditation and mindfulness as radical tools to reclaim our attention from “big tech” firms and social media platforms. As a teacher, I am especially keen to uncover this line of inquiry to support my students for whom digital and social media are integral aspects of living. My next book project will be at the nexus of the study of attention, mindfulness and the future of technology.

Finally, I am also continuing my work on communication technologies and society through interdisciplinary collaborative projects on the social dimensions of rapidly evolving Artificial Intelligence (AI) and language models.

Adam Hoffman

Assistant Professor of Psychology, Cornell University
In my research, I investigate three primary questions as they pertain to adolescent development.

How do social identities develop and change over time?

Adolescence is considered to be a time of great change and development of social identities in the lives of adolescence. This line of research examines how social identities (e.g., ethnic-racial, gender, or sexual orientation) are changing over time and what contextual factors and socializing agents could be influencing this change.

How are social identities related to mental health, well-being, and academic motivation?

Research has generally shown social identities are positively associated with more adaptive outcomes?. However, there is still much to be known about what influences these associations and in what contexts. We are working to close this gap by investigating these relations and moderators across various contexts.

How can social identities be leveraged as assets to promote positive youth development and outcomes?

Research around social identities has exploded in the past 15 years, demonstrating at a stronger, more positive sense of self on the basis of various social identities promotes a host of adaptive outcomes. Surprisingly, little research has begun to develop ways to enhance and leverage these identities to foster better outcomes for youth. We are aiming to close this gap by developing interventions to shape identities to be congruent with positive youth development and outcomes.

Adam Hume

Research Assistant Professor of Microbiology, Boston University
Which viruses a threat to human health?
New viruses are being discovered at a rapidly increasing rate by virtue of next generation sequencing of wildlife samples, including many viruses closely related to some of the deadliest emerging and reemerging viruses. In just the last dozen years, 9 new filoviruses have been discovered, all with unknown pathogenic potential. One of my main research interests involves characterizing differential host responses to pathogenic viruses and closely related non-pathogenic viruses to both be able to assess the possible pathogenicity of novel viruses as well as to try to target host response pathways involved in these divergent responses as potential points of therapeutic intervention.

My work focuses on some of the deadliest human pathogens, most notably filoviruses such as Ebola and Marburg viruses. Owing to the devasting disease and high mortality rates they cause, study of these viruses requires a Biosafety Level 4 (BSL4) laboratory such as the BSL4 facility we have at the NEIDL.

Studying uncultured viruses
One roadblock to the study of these new viruses related to highly pathogenic emerging and reemerging viruses is that most of these viruses have not yet been cultured. While creating recombinant viruses through reverse genetics approaches would seem to be a solution to this issue, a second barricade to these studies often prevents this: most viral genomes identified by next generation sequences lack terminal genomic sequences. These portions of the genome typically include sequences necessary for viral genomic replication and transcription, making rescue impossible in the absence of these sequences.

Lloviu virus, a filovirus first discovered in 2011 by sequencing of bat carcasses found in caves in Spain in 2002, represents such a virus. While Lloviu virus was recently isolated from Schreibers bats in Hungary (Kemenesi et al., 2022), it had not been cultured previously and sequence was missing from both ends of the genome. Using reverse genetics tools, including a previously developed Lloviu virus minigenome system, we were able to complement missing genomic sequences and rescue recombinant Lloviu virus and begin to study this virus (Hume et al., 2022) prior to it being cultured. As with all filovirus work, these studies were performed in our BSL4 facility. Importantly, we are now comparing our recombinant Lloviu virus to see how well it mirrors wild-type Lloviu virus. If these viruses behave similarly, this could provide a new blueprint for rescuing and determining the pathogenic potential of many viruses which may pose a risk to human health should a spillover event occur.

Human systems
While animal models have undoubtedly provided important information with regards to viral pathogenesis and transmission, the fact that there are many antiviral drugs and therapies that have been shown to be effective in animals but not in humans has made the need to develop and use human systems to study virus-induced host responses and correlates of pathogenicity self-evident. To this end, my research is focused on using these systems, including human primary cells, primary-based human organoids, and induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived cells and organoids to study viral replication and pathogenesis. Collaborating with tissue engineers including researchers at Boston University’s Center for Regenerative Medicine (CReM), we have begun to explore how viruses manipulate these systems. Using transcriptional and phosphoproteomic approaches to study these systems, we are uncovering key pathways necessary for viral replication, allowing for targeted small molecular inhibition of host pathways to block viral replication. Using viruses of differing pathogenicity, we hope to also identify virulence markers in order to assess the potential pathogenicity of novel viruses which have not yet been known to spill over to the human population.
