Alex Fischer

Honorary Fellow, School of Cybernetics, Australian National University
Dr Alex Fischer is an Honorary Research Fellow at the ANU School of Cybernetics. He brings his interdisciplinary training and global cross-sector experiences to pressing questions about how technology is being designed to accelerate progress across the Sustainable Development Goals. His policy and practice interests include how smart-monitoring technologies are shaping rural drinking water services, how Bayesian analytic approaches are enabling adaptive design aimed at improving intergenerational societal health and how new data flows are changing policy and accountability pathways ranging from community to watershed to national scales. His academic research explores how competing media and policy narratives interact to shape public priorities and how to design polycentric institutions by considering the way information systems link to decisions and performance outcomes.

Alex was previously the Head of Research at the Paul Ramsay Foundation. Prior to that, he supported Bangladeshi colleagues to launch SafePani, a community owned rural water service leveraging blended public-private finance and use of smart monitoring technologies to improve safety and reliability of public and private water points. During his time at the Center for Earth Science Information Networks (CIESIN) and the Earth Institute at Columbia University, he established the Fragile States Policy Program and co-led the Environmental Security Research Program. He is a founding member of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s expert group on Thematic Research on Data and Statistic.

Alex Johnson

Associate Professor of Behavioral Neuroscience, Michigan State University
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.

Alex Jones

Lecturer, Swansea University

I am interested in social and evolutionary perspectives of psychology, and have used these approaches to study topics related to face perception. My work has examined facial cues to personality, physical and mental health, and differences between men and women in terms of skin texture and colouration. I've also investigated the way cosmetics can change social perceptions and how they act on naturally occurring differences between men and women. My most recent projects have investigated body image and misconceptions of attractiveness ideals between men and women.
