Dr Cameron Webb is a Clinical Lecturer with the University of Sydney and Principal Hospital Scientist with the Department of Medical Entomology at Pathology West - ICPMR Westmead (NSW Health Pathology & Westmead Hospital). Cameron's primary focus is understanding the role of environmental management and urban development in reducing the risks of mosquito-borne disease caused by Murray Valley encephalitis virus, Ross River virus and Barmah Forest virus. However, he has also been called on to provide expert advice on a range of medically important arthropods, such as ticks, mites, biting midges, bed bugs and flies, to local, state and federal government agencies.
Key to his research is an understanding of the ecological role of mosquitoes and how wetland conservation, construction and rehabilitation projects may influence regional mosquito-borne disease risk together with changes in the local environment resulting from climate change, potential introductions of exotic mosquito species and personal protection strategies (e.g. insect repellents).
In his position with the University of Sydney, Cameron regularly provides lectures in a range of undergraduate and post graduate courses and has supervised a number of research students including collaborative projects with the University of Western Sydney, the Australian Catholic University and the University of South Australia.

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.
Charlotte's research focuses on the impacts of parasites and disease on marine populations. Since beginning her studies in 2008, Charlotte has traveled extensively, working with collaborators in the USA and Canada, gaining valuable experience in a range of disease detection methods and learning more about marine management strategies. Her doctorate at the Department of Bioscience, Swansea University (UK) focused on determining the health status of commercially important European crustacean populations; susceptibility to disease, the effects of invasive species and how fisheries closure can impact the health of crustaceans. Her current position at the Reef Systems Unit in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, investigates the effects of crustacean disease on coral reef health. She is passionate about the integration of fishermen and marine scientists for the betterment of fisheries management and a sustainable future.
Senior Lecturer in Law, University of York
I've been awarded an ESRC 'Future Research Leader' grant, with which I'm PI on the EU Rights Project, www.eurightsproject.org.uk - working with EU migrants, Citizens Advice Services, and other advice agencies around the country, providing an advice and advocacy service while conducting an ethnography on the administrative and legal problems encountered. I have documented the effects of the recent welfare changes targeting EU migrants.
The project was described by reviewers as 'groundbreaking', 'tremendously innovative', 'strikingly original' and said 'the applicant’s background makes her possibly the only person of her generation in a position to credibly offer the opportunity to develop this methodology in this kind of context: access to civil justice, in supranational contexts’.
Having volunteered and worked in Citizens Advice Bureaux for over thirteen years, and specialised in EU legal research for eleven years, I have practical as well as academic expertise in UK welfare law, EU law, (particularly EU social law - welfare, free movement, citizenship and equal treatment), human rights law, equality and non-discrimination law (especially disability), the rights of carers, and child poverty.
I've been appointed an 'analytical expert' on the EU Commission's Free Movement and Social Security Coordination network, producing reports and giving litigation advice and suggestions to the Commission. I am also joint cases editor for the Journal of Social Security Law.
My work has been published in key international journals, such as the European Law Review, the Common Market Law Review, the Maastricht Journal of International and Comparative Law, and the Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law.
I've communicated about my research through various media, including the Today Programme on Radio 4, BBC Inside Out, and BBC Breakfast. I have given various public talks, including at the YorkTalks 2016, https://youtu.be/Iz-dY3g-ZAI and in an Open Course lecture series on Law, Government and the Public, 2015.
My PhD in Law (Liverpool) was funded by the AHRC, and focussed on free movement, equal treatment and EU citizenship; during this I took part in two research projects on retirement migration funded by the Spanish Ministry for Employment & Social Affairs and Age Concern. These looked at the access to welfare services for post-retirement EU migrants, particularly UK nationals abroad. My LLM (Leeds) research involved study of the attempts to produce an EU constitution. My work is inherently interdisciplinary; my first degree was a BA in Social & Political Sciences, (Cambridge).
