PhD Student in Sport, Health and Exercise Science, University of Hull
I am a PhD student and Graduate Teaching Assistant, teaching and researching within the area of exercise physiology. I am broadly conducting research looking at the health benefits of high intensity interval training (HIIT), an increasingly popular type of exercise. I believe exercise is an important part of daily life and can have profound benefits to your health over time.
I work and study at The University of Hull where I am studying for a PhD in Sport, Health and Exercise Science. I also obtained my Master of Science in Sport Science and Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Human Biology at The University of Hull.
My main research interest is attempting to make HIIT accessible to a larger portion of the population by reducing the intensity needed while training, so making this form of exercise easier to complete. While I appreciate this form of training will not be suitable for all, I do believe, a well-designed HIIT programme can be used as part of someone's regular training programme.

In addition to speaking at international conferences and publishing in peer-reviewed journals she has edited a book on societal effects of persuasive games and is currently writing two other manuscripts around game design and learning.
Currently, Dana is involved in research focusing on player experience in social impact games, Bayesian statistical models to predict behaviour in serious games, and designing games for e-learning in teacher education.
Dan Hough graduated from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1997. On leaving the North-East he headed for the Institute for German Studies at the University of Birmingham to complete his PhD. Following the completion of his doctoral studies in 2000 he spent another two years in Birmingham working on a Leverhulme Trust funded research project with Charlie Jeffery and then as an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow. He then moved to the University of Nottingham for a year before joining the department in the Autumn of 2003.
In his role as Director of the Sussex Centre for the Study of Corruption (SCSC) Dan regularly works with and advises practitioners in the anti-corruption community.
Dan also serves as the Chairman of the International Association for the Study of German Politics having previously served as both Secretary (2007-10) and Treasurer (2004-07)
My research interests cover issues of governance, accountability and ethics in forms of science, technology and organization. I draw on ideas from ethnomethodology, science and technology studies (in particular forms of radical and reflexive scepticism, constructivism, Actor-Network Theory and the recent STS turn to markets and other forms of organizing) and my research is ethnographic in orientation. In particular I am interested in the question of how entities (objects, values, relationships, processes and also people) become of the world.
My substantive interests are quite varied. Across a number of research projects I have ethnographically engaged with: security and surveillance, traffic management, waste, airports, biometrics, parking, signposts, malaria vaccines, Universities, algorithms and speeding drivers. Through these projects I have looked into ontology, notions of equivalence, parasitism, the mundane, market failures, problems and solutions, deleting, value and the utility of social science.
Dan is a third year Ph.D. candidate at the University of Oxford. In his doctoral thesis, ‘Fighting Rust: The Long Economic Crisis and the Rebuilding of the Northeast and Midwest’, Dan explores the political and economic forces that helped transform the Northeast and the Midwest from industrial to post-industrial during the 1970s and 1980s.
Chronicling the efforts that members of the business community, labor unions, community activists and elected officials (local and national) made to help struggling industries and geographic regions negotiate the shifting economic terrain between 1974 and 1988 Dan examines the interlinked histories of urban decline, deindustrialisation, and economic development. By thoroughly examining the political environment of the 1970s and 1980s from a local and regional level Dan hopes to challenge the assumption that the economic success of the 1990s was produced by the limited government and free market policies of the Reagan administration or the ingenuity of individual entrepreneurs.

Senior Lecturer: University of Huddersfield Business School, University of Huddersfield
BA(Hons), MSc (Distinction), PGCHE, FHEA
Senior lecturer at University of Huddersfield Business School specialising in business marketing and brand experience management. Specific research interests include the role of digital technology in marketing innovation, and the organisation of marketing practice. I am also interested in the political economy of sport business management at an international level, with specific interest toward the changing consumer culture in 21st century China.
His research focuses on the psychology underlying human misbelief. In his most widely-cited work, he showed that people tend to hold flattering opinions of their competence, character, and prospects that cannot be justified from objective evidence—a phenomenon that carries many implications for health, education, the workplace, and economic exchange. He also examines how many of these same processes also injure judgments made by groups.
Dunning’s other research focuses on decision-making in various settings. In work on economic games, he explores how choices commonly presumed to be economic in nature actually hinge more on psychological factors, such as social norms and emotion. In particular, he documents that people trust complete strangers in situations in which the economic analysis would suggest no trust whatsoever.
Finally, Dunning explores how people’s preferences and wishes distort their judgements and conclusions. In past work, he has shown how the influence of motivated reasoning extends even down to shape perceptual experience, such as vision and hearing.
