Aldert Vrij

Professor of Social Psychology, University of Portsmouth
My main research interest is deception, resulting in more than 600 publications and more than 30,000 citations (H-factor 87). I received grants from British Research Councils, Trusts and Foundations, Insurers, Federal Bureau of Investigation and American, British, Dutch, and Singapore Governments, totalling > $11,500,000. An overview article of 100 years deception research published in Applied Cognitive Psychology in 2022 (doi: 10.1002/acp.3971) showed that I have the most publications and the most citations in the field.

I work closely with practitioners (police, security services and insurers) in terms of conducting research and disseminating its findings. My book Detecting Lies and Deceit: Pitfalls and Opportunities (published by Wiley) is a comprehensive overview of research into (non)verbal and physiological deception and lie detection.

In 2016 I received the International Investigative Interviewing Research Group (iiiRG) Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of my significant contribution to investigative interviewing.
I was awarded my PhD in 1991 at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) and came to the UK in 1994, when I joined the Psychology Department as a Senior Lecturer. In 1996 I was promoted to Reader and in 2000 to my current position: Professor of Applied Social Psychology.

lebachew Kemisso Haybano is an Assistant Professor and a faculty in the Center for Comparative Education and Policy Studies (CCEPS) at Addis Ababa University (AAU), Ethiopia. He has got PhD in International and Comparative Education from Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia. His research focuses on how national education systems deal with issues of identity development and the integration/inclusion of refugees. He has consulted with various organizations including Danish Refugee Council, Jesuit Refugee Service, UNICEF, Education International, and UNHCR, among others, on studies related to refugees in across sub-Saharan Africa. Alebachew has extensive experience working with refugees in the camps and urban areas of Ethiopia, and excellent insider knowledge of the refugee operation and refugee management systems in Ethiopia. Alebachew’s postdoctoral fellowship in the Center for African Studies focuses on studying the promises of Ethiopia’s new policy for inclusion of refugees into national education systems and the challenges of its local implementation using evidences from the Gambella region in the Western border of Ethiopia. His research project aims to explain how historical experiences of refugee inclusion/integration inform the implementation of the new policy; understand how diverse meanings of inclusion and different approaches for inclusion affect the implementation of the new policy; analyze hopes and fears of refugees and host communities related to the implementation of the new policy; and investigate existing capacities and incentives in the Ethiopian education system that can facilitate or hinder implementation of the new policy for inclusion of refugees into national education system.

Alessandro Poletto

Lecturer in East Asian Religions, Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis
Alessandro Poletto (he/they) specializes in the social and religious history of premodern Japan, with an emphasis on Buddhism in the early medieval period (tenth to the thirteenth century). He earned his PhD from Columbia University in 2020 with a dissertation entitled “The Culture of Healing in Early Medieval Japan: A Study in Premodern Epistemology,” in which he examined discourses and practices concerning healing and disease, with particular attention to the relationship between Buddhist healers and other technicians involved in the treatment of illness, namely court physicians and onmyōji. His other research and teaching interests include the understanding and ritual resolution of natural disasters in premodern East Asia, the history of the cultural exchanges between the Korean peninsula and the Japanese archipelago, and Buddhist material culture and archeology in East Asia.

His current research focuses on the material and textual dimensions of various types of deposits — within statues or under the ground — in order to get a grasp of Buddhism as practiced by lay Buddhists in early medieval Japan. Dedicatory or votive materials discovered inside Buddhist statues or in underground deposits (commonly known as kyōzuka) illustrate the motivations behind the undertaking of a certain burial of sutras, or the production of a copy of a specific sutra, allowing us to see the hopes, aspirations and anxieties of the people engaging in such practices, but also the ways in which they attempted to shape their destinies, and those of deceased dear ones, through their dedicatory good acts.

Before joining Washington University, Alessandro was a JSPS postdoctoral fellow at Kyoto University. He holds a B.A. from the University of Naples “L’Orientale,” and an M.A. from Osaka University.

To date, he has authored over 20 scientific publications and more than 80 blog articles.

In his pro bono work, Dr Demaio co-founded NCDFREE, a global social movement against noncommunicable diseases using social media, short film and leadership events – reaching more than 2.5 million people in its first 18 months. Then, in 2015, he founded festival21, assembling and leading a team of knowledge leaders in staging a massive and unprecedented, free celebration of community, food, culture and future in his hometown Melbourne.

In November 2015, Alessandro joined the Department of Nutrition for Health and Development at the World Health Organization (Geneva), as Medical Officer for noncommunicable conditions and nutrition.

Dr. Johnson's research interests are in uncovering the neuronal mechanisms of learning and motivation. Current projects examine mechanisms of binge-eating with a particular focus on how the organizational and activational role of gonadal hormones shape and confer risk for the excessive intake of palatable food. A second area of research focuses on the role of neuropeptides in the control of learning and ingestive behavior to examine how brain circuits controlling both homeostatic and learning and memory systems interact to modulate allostatic control of food-seeking, consumption and metabolism. A third area of research examines mesencephalic-forebrain influences over learning and decision-making, with a particular focus on dopamine. To examine these research questions, Dr. Johnson's lab employs sophisticated ingestive and associative learning procedures with cutting-edge chemogenetic and optogenetic techniques.
