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.

Associate Professor of Geosciences, Baylor University
Understanding the terrestrial ecosystem and its response to global climate change is critical for assessing the impacts of current and future climate change. However, we still know relatively little about the way terrestrial ecosystems actually respond to climate change. My research is focused on understanding how environmental change drives evolutionary processes in plants and animals. Specifically, my lab’s research is focused on reconstructing ancient climates and ecosystems through time in North America and eastern Africa, and on developing better and more accurate paleoclimate and paleoecological proxies. To do this we integrate methods in paleobotany, ecology, paleoclimatology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, and paleomagnetism. Results from this research address a broad spectrum of questions aimed at understanding the underlying dynamics of environmental, biotic, and climatic change through time.

Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of Richmond
Dana El Kurd holds a Ph.D. in government with concentrations in comparative politics and international relations, and has focused her work on authoritarian regimes in the Arab world, state-society relations in these countries, and the impact of international intervention.
She has published in peer-reviewed journals such as PS Political Science & Politics, Journal of Global Security Studies, Middle East Law and Governance, Siyasat Arabiya (an Arabic peer-reviewed journal), Contemporary Arab Affairs, Parameters, and more. Her book titled Polarized and Demobilized: Legacies of Authoritarianism in Palestine was published in 2020 with Oxford University Press.

She examines how authoritarian regimes try to implement policies and how external intervention may affect their success. Her research lies at the intersection of comparative and IR research, particularly with regards to international influence on regime development.
Substantively, Dana is interested in international involvement and authoritarianism within the Arab world. Her multi-method research focuses on how authoritarian regimes in the Arab world have maintained durability, as well as the societal impact of this authoritarianism on political engagement.
Topics of interest: the effect of international involvement on domestic politics, state-society relations, repression, political mobilization, strategies of authoritarianism, US foreign policy in the Middle East, Palestinian politics

He works in science of science, a subfield of computational social science, and A.I. for science. He writes papers and builds web-based software tools to accelerate knowledge discovery.
Daniel’s research aims to understand historical relationships, mechanisms, and optimization opportunities of knowledge production. Daniel harnesses vast datasets about publications and citations and applies Machine Learning and A.I. to uncover rules that make publication, collaboration, and funding decisions more successful. Recently, he has been interested in biases in artificial intelligence and developing methods for detecting them. In addition, he has created tools to improve literature search, peer review, and detect scientific fraud. He has been funded by NSF, DDHS, Sloan Foundation, and DARPA through the SCORE project, and his work has been featured in Nature News, Nature Podcast, The Chronicle of Higher Education, NPR, and the Scientist.

Master's Student in Entomology, Penn State
B.S. in Biology from Urisnus College
Areas of expertise: Ecology, Entomology, IPM, Spiders, Carabid Beetles
I am interested in the ecology of arthropods--how they interact with plants, with each other, and with us. My research looks for ways to use arthropod ecology to benefit agricultural efficiency, specifically through the process of biological control. Biological control is a strategy of pest management which uses natural enemies (predators and parasitoids primarily) as killing agents, reducing our reliance upon chemical insecticides. My projects are focused on improving this process, identifying new control agents and increasing the effectiveness of those we already use. I recently began studying spiders with the hopes of using them to control problematic pests in alfalfa, a common forage crop. The results so far are very promising.
Senior Lecturer in Psycholinguistics, University of Central Lancashire
Daniel’s teaching and research go hand in hand, covering language variation across various aspects as well as the psychological underpinnings of language. He teaches, conducts research, and supervises and advises research students (undergraduate and postgraduate) in these areas.
Daniel mostly contributes to teaching in the various English Language undergraduate courses at the University of Central Lancashire. These contributions are united by his Humboldtian ideals of education and by research-based teaching practice: Creative ideas of doing so can come from well-established researchers just as well as from students, and so Daniel believes it is important to teach recent and empirically-founded results and to involve students in research – from having research projects as part of module assessments to projects in the annual Undergraduate Research Internship scheme.
In his early years in academia, Daniel was intrigued by the possibilities of explanation offered by systematic descriptions of language – for example, syntactic explanations for processes of language acquisition, and patterns of noun gender based on word structure. During his postgraduate years in Germany and New Zealand, Daniel was introduced to the more complex descriptions of language variation as a systematic or statistically describable phenomenon, further revealing the complex knowledge that every competent speaker of a language has. This has led to Daniel’s having research, teaching, and supervision interests in the fields of psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics: How exactly do we understand and use language, and how do expectations and experience affect these processes? In what ways and to what extent does language vary between different users of the same language and between different utterances by the same user? How do language users react to and process this variation? Daniel has also worked on methodological questions in linguistics, such as statistical tests for different types of data, modifying established research methods so they can be used with participant groups like children or people with disabilities, and open-source research technology.
