Edwin Burns

Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Edge Hill University
If you think you or someone you know suffers from prosopagnosia/faceblindness (i.e., regular difficulties when recognising faces they should), then please get in touch with me if you would like to be tested for the condition at [email protected]

I’m a psychologist who is interested in vision in those with intact face recognition skills, neuropsychological (i.e., brain damage) and neurodevelopmental (i.e., lifelong problems in certain aspects of cognition) groups. A significant proportion of this work has focused on individuals who suffer from developmental prosopagnosia, a lifelong condition characterised by severe difficulties recognising facial identity. Unfortunately, most of the people who believe they have prosopagnosia will not receive a diagnosis using current approaches to testing. I hope to remedy this through my latest research (Burns et al., 2022). I also do work with aphantasia (people who can't visualise imagery in their mind) and developmental co-ordination disorder (people who have trouble with movement).

I am also interested in how we perceive a face when it is viewed with other faces nearby. This can often lead to a phenomenon called a cheerleader or friend effect, where the presence of others can make us appear more attractive or trustworthy. My recent paper (Burns et al., 2021, Cognition) drew many of these effects together in a framework that will help authors understand the myriad of influences on such phenomena.

Please get in touch with me at [email protected] if you have any questions about my work, or would like to study for a fully funded PhD (open to candidates worldwide). PhD applications are often open near closing dates in January or summer.

Eileen E. Hofmann

Professor of Oceanography, Old Dominion University
Eileen Hofmann is a Professor and Eminent Scholar in the Department of Ocean and Earth Sciences and a member of the Center for Coastal Physical Oceanography at Old Dominion University. Her primary research focuses on understanding physical-biological interactions in marine ecosystems. Her research has taken her to many parts of the ocean, including Antarctic coastal regions and the Southern Ocean. Her recent research focuses on understanding and predicting harmful algal blooms in Chesapeake Bay and understanding controls on shellfish population dynamics. Eileen’s interest in modeling shellfish populations began with a study of the effects of deepening and widening the Houston Ship Channel on eastern oyster populations in Galveston Bay. From this initial study, Eileen and her colleagues expanded their models to other oyster species, several clam species, abalone, and ocean quahogs. Along the way, the models for shellfish population dynamics were extended to include disease and disease transmission processes and the effects of climate change. Her current shellfish modeling studies consider the competing effects of climate change and offshore wind energy development on commercial shellfish species on the Middle Atlantic Bight continental shelf along the U.S. east coast. These model applications represent a progression that links shellfish population dynamics with climate change, fishing economics, and management. Eileen has been involved in several international global environmental change programs and serves as Co-Chair of the Southern Ocean Observing System. She is also Chair of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee to evaluate the effects of offshore wind energy development on the hydrodynamics of the Nantucket Shoals region.

Eleanor Barnett

Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in the School of History, Archaeology and Religion, Cardiff University
I am a historian of food and early modern religion.

As a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at Cardiff, my research project is entitled 'Eating Exchanges: Food and Religious Encounter in the Early Modern World'. I aim, by exploring moments in which food was exchanged between people of different faiths, to better understand cross-cultural encounter: the divisions, inequalities, and friendships that shaped the early modern world. A focus on food exchange also helps to break down the Christian-centric interpretations of significant early modern processes including the Reformations, colonialism, and globalisation. My major research case studies are situated in the northeast coast of early America and the metropolitan city of Venice.

I am currently converting my PhD thesis into an academic book entitled The Reformation of Food, which exposes the role of food and eating in the division between Protestants and Catholics through the comparative case studies of England and Italy. My other major area of research is the history of food waste; my trade book Waste Not: A Kitchen History of Leftovers is under contract with Head of Zeus. With Katrina Moseley, I am editing a special issue of Global Food History, which is entitled 'Histories of Food Waste and Sustainabiltiy'.

My research in food history speaks to a wider audience and I am regularly involved in public-facing history initiatives and media interviews. Each day, as @historyeats on Instagram, I share food history facts, artwork, and objects to a wonderful community from across the world.

Eleanor Green

Senior Lecturer In Computational Petrology, The University of Melbourne
I gained my PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2011, after which I held post-doctoral research positions at the University of Mainz, the University of Bristol and ETH Zurich. I joined the University of Melbourne in January 2019 as a Senior Lecturer in Computational Petrology.

I model the thermodynamic properties of minerals and melts, and use this modelling to investigate a variety of Earth processes. The models that I make are based on information taken from thousands of experiments on geological materials, as well as computer simulations and observations of rocks in the field. As such, the models serve to summarise our knowledge of the properties of these materials, subject to some interpretation. My primary interest is in improving the process of developing the models - incorporating more information in more meaningful ways, so as to mimic natural materials more accurately and in a wider range of geological contexts. Much of my work builds on the Holland & Powell internally-consistent dataset, and the families of activity-composition relations developed by Roger Powell, Tim Holland, myself and other co-workers. These models are often associated with Roger Powell's program, Thermocalc. I am involved with several projects that apply the thermodynamic models to geological problems. Recent applications include integrated geodynamic and thermodynamic modelling of magma storage and ascent, multiple-reaction thermobarometry for cumulate rocks, and thermodynamic constraints on the formation of the Earth's crust.

Eleanor Lybeck

Senior Lecturer in Literature, University of Liverpool
I joined the Institute of Irish Studies in 2019. Before moving to the University of Liverpool, I completed postgraduate studies in literature at New York University as a Fulbright scholar and at the University of Cambridge with the support of the AHRC. After finishing my PhD in 2015, I worked as a stipendiary and departmental lecturer at the University of Oxford.

My research interests cover the period since 1800 and fall into two categories: theatre & performance history and Irish literature & culture. I published a book on the circus in Irish literature and culture, All on Show, with Cork University Press last year. I am now working on my second monograph, which explores how English comic opera became a colonial export in the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. At the same time, I am working on an adaptation for live performance of Virginia Woolf's final novel Between the Acts and, with Dr Ataa Alsalloum of Liverpool's School of Architecture, an edited collection exploring aspects of intangible cultural heritage among migrant communities in the UK.

I teach on a wide range of both Irish studies and English modules, and convene modules on writing for radio, migrant writing, and twentieth-century and contemporary Irish writing. Like my research, my teaching tends to be interdisciplinary, combining my interests in literary criticism, theatre and performance studies, and history, and I encourage students to develop their own practical skills through creative critical assessment.

I am always on the look out for new ways to share my research with diverse audiences, both within and beyond the university. In 2008, I founded the production company Sidelong Glance: its mission is to turn academic research into widely accessible theatre, performance and documentary film. Sidelong Glance produced the short film series Whose History? for the Institute of Irish Studies at Liverpool in 2021; another of the company's productions, Wild Laughter, is a set text on undergraduate drama modules in English. In 2017, I was named an AHRC/BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinker. Since then, I have written, presented and appeared on a number of BBC Radio 3 and Radio 4 programmes. I have also written for various newspapers, magazines and blogs, including Vogue, the Irish Times and HuffPost UK.

Within Liverpool's School of Histories, Languages and Cultures, I am the Deputy Academic Lead for Admissions and Widening Participation.
